Sonatype Named to JMP Securities’ Top 50 List of Hottest Privately Held Companies

Fulton, MD – March 30, 2015 – Sonatype, the Nexus company and a continuous delivery leader, today announced that it has been named to the JMP Securities Fast 50 list of hottest privately held security and networking companies. The list recognizes innovators that have the capability to dominate their respective markets.

“We’re fundamentally changing the way software gets built, bringing automotive supply chain best practices to the software supply chain,” said Wayne Jackson, CEO, Sonatype. “As a result, higher quality software can be created more quickly and at much lower cost. We’re pleased to receive JMP Securities recognition for our efforts.”

Every day, developers rely on millions of third party and open source building blocks—known as components—to build the software that runs our world. And with 5x more installs than any other repository manager Sonatype’s Nexus is the industry standard for accelerating continuous software delivery and DevOps. Sonatype ensures that only the best components are used throughout the software development lifecycle so that organizations don't have to make the tradeoff between going fast and delivering high quality, secure software. Policy automation, ongoing monitoring and proactive alerts make it easy to have full visibility and control of components throughout the software supply chain so that applications start secure and remain that way over time.
