Nexus accurately identifies 99% of open source components.  Competitors accurately identify only 15% and overwhelm teams with false positives and negatives. Sonatype's precise identification is powered by our patented Advanced Binary Fingerprinting (ABF) which matches components by Cryptographic Hash, Structural Similarity, Derived Coordinate, and File Name. Depending on the ecosystem, Nexus utilizes one or more methods to precisely identify each and every open source component.
30,000 new packages analyzed every day.
Nexus uses proprietary machine learning and artificial intelligence to analyze more than 25 million components from millions of open source projects in real-time. We analyze every single GitHub event for every open source project every day.  We monitor advisory websites, Google search alerts, NVD, OSS Index, vulnerability sites, etc. We gain insight from 150,000 organizations using the Nexus Repository and we're constantly learning from the billions of downloads from the Central Repository.
811,200 hours of research by security experts.
Sonatype began researching open source security vulnerabilities and license risk in 2011.
