Nexus Intelligence: Advanced Binary Fingerprinting (ABF) precisely identifies components via cryptographic hash, structural similarity, derived coordinate, and file name.
Competitors: Identify components using file name and/or package manifest which contributes to false positives / negatives.
Nexus Intelligence: Our Automated Vulnerability Detection (AVD) engine runs 24x7x365 and combines with 65 human security experts to monitor public, private, and crowd data for new open source vulns. New critical vulns are itemized, associated to component versions, and published with dev-friendly and actionable remediation guidance within 6 hours.
Competitors: Monitor public data sources for new vulns and only identify a portion of risk as it emerges. Resource constrained teams perform limited research on new vulns leading to inadequate remediation guidance.
Nexus Intelligence: Premier source of open source risk and developer-friendly remediation guidance consists of:
4M Unique vulns
1.4M Sonatype identified
3% Public data (ex. NVD)
97% Proprietary data
Competitors: Commodity sources of open source risk with limited remediation guidance.
Nexus Intelligence: Operates at enormous scale with highly curated intelligence on:
2M Unique Projects
97% of GitHub Commits
All Major Ecosystems
Competitors: Operate at smaller scale with partially curated intelligence.
