New With Nexus: Policy-Oriented Reporting With Lifecycle

Policy evaluation. Policy enforcement. Open Source Governance. DevSecOps.

In case you missed it, we’re pretty committed to helping our users keep their applications safe from open source vulnerabilities and license issues. More importantly, we’re proud to be able to enable them to do so at scale. The “at scale” piece here is possible because of our 1) stellar data on software components and 2) ability to enforce open source policy violations.

We recently started down a path to make it even easier for Nexus Lifecycle users to enforce their open source policies at scale. After a few weeks of beta testing, we’re happy to share that our new policy-oriented reports are officially live! This refreshed version of our Application Composition Report includes policy violations  at the center of the report, allowing users to quickly identify and act on remediation opportunities. Focusing on policy remediation helps teams concentrate on reducing risk and ensures users are getting the most out of their Lifecycle implementation.

Take a peak: 



Policy-Oriented Reporting for Nexus Lifecycle

If you previously used the Application Composition Report for auditing or keeping a pulse on all security violations, don’t worry! We’ve retained the ability to access and filter on raw component data from the UI. See how below.
