The Brain Behind Nexus Lifecycle

  • IQ Server shares component intelligence with your teams early, often and throughout the software supply chain so they make better decisions and build better software.

  • IQ Server integrates with popular development tools including, but not limited to: Maven, Eclipse, IntelliJ, Visual Studio, GitHub, Bamboo, Jenkins, Xebia Labs, and SonarQube.

  • IQ Server offers a fully-customizeable policy engine, so you can define which components are acceptable, and which are not.

  • IQ Server provides a full suite of supported REST APIs that provide access to core features for custom implementations

A better way to match components
  • Traditional component matching produces false matches, so we invented a better approach. 
  • Advanced binary fingerprinting identifies all open source and proprietary components, as well as their dependencies and matches are broken into three categories: exact, similar or unknown.
  • Just in case you have proprietary components, or want to claim a component as your own, we let you customize that as well.
  • Extensive support for the most popular component formats, such as Maven/Java, npm and NuGet.
Take control of your software supply chain
  • Customized policy means the power to decide which components an organization or individual teams should use.
  • Policy threat customization allows you to organize and rank policies by corresponding violations and associated risk.
  • Flexible controls allow you to decide the exact action to take at each step of the software development lifecycle.
  • Create and use custom policies, or industry-standard policies 'out-of-the-box'.
  • Use policy to identify a range of component criteria, including but not limited to: vulnerability, license, age, popularity, and even exact coordinates.
Integrated with popular development tools
  • A wide range of integrations brings always-on component intelligence to development teams via tools they already use.
  • Filter component issues by applications, policies, and development stages.
  • Policy actions integrate with a variety of development tools including: Eclipse, Visual Studio, IntelliJ IDEA, Jenkins, Hudson, Bamboo, Maven, Docker, SonarQube, Nexus Repository and more.
  • Access the full set of evaluation and component intelligence features at the command line.
  • Use our full range of supported REST APIs to create custom solutions for evaluating components.
Automate your software supply chain
  • Configure policy actions to automatically prevent applications from moving forward with unwanted or unapproved components.
  • Setup automated notifications when unwanted components are being used in your applications.
  • Use policy monitoring to keep a continuous and vigilant watch for new component defects, even in production applications.
  • Automate component approval workflows using component labels, and stopping unapproved components at the source.
  • Apply application categories to automatically assign policy for specific application types.
