Eficode and Sonatype Partner to Secure the Software Supply Chain for Modern Enterprise Organisations

 

   

With the Sonatype Nexus Platform, Eficode helps customers understand the importance of shifting left and automating open source security across the DevOps pipeline

Helsinki, Finland, Nov. 27, 2019 -- Today, Eficode, the European leader in DevOps that is designing, optimising, and managing today’s evolving software development lifecycle processes with its DevOps Platform Eficode ROOT, announced a partnership with Sonatype, the inventors of software supply chain automation, to bring open source governance to its rapidly-growing customer base. 

Eficode’s new partnership with Sonatype enables customers of its Eficode ROOT DevOps Platform, which helps companies manage their DevOps software production lines as a service (SaaS), to innovate faster and easily mitigate security risk inherent in open source, throughout the application development lifecycle. Sonatype’s Nexus Platform provides automated analysis of open source security and software composition via the company’s unrivaled vulnerability and license exposure data, making it even easier for Eficode customers to instill security into their development practices. 

“Today, the biggest security risks for corporations are in software. At Eficode, we have seen that security has become a top priority for all companies, as they recognize how much they rely on software. Thus, management teams are increasingly interested in understanding the current status of software security and what underlying threats and vulnerabilities exist,” said Niko Herold, VP International Operations at Eficode. “Sonatype helps our clients quickly gain insight into their application technology stack, providing DevSecOps stakeholders key insight into the risks and threats posed by modern software development practices.” 

Modern organisations no longer view software development as a cost of doing business, but rather as a core competency and strategic imperative that defines the entire enterprise. This shift, and understanding that they must release software faster than their competitors, has increased use of open source software exponentially. Today, on average, 85% of a software application is compiled of open source, making the ability to effortlessly secure open source across the development lifecycle vital to every business focused on innovation and speed. 

“Eficode is an extremely valued partner and addition to our strategic delivery ecosystem,” said Wai Man Yau, Vice President International at Sonatype. “Like Sonatype, Eficode has helped guide in the era of software supply chain management and is committed to helping companies better automate software development, while ushering in key DevOps and DevSecOps practices. Our joint mission to reduce manual effort for developers, along with their dedication to their customers, makes them perfectly situated to help us further expand the footprint of the Nexus Platform.” 

The Nexus Platform is an integral part of Eficode’s strategy to perform software composition analysis. It automatically enforces open source governance and controls risk across every phase of the software development lifecycle. Fueled by Nexus Intelligence which includes in-depth security, license, and quality information on millions of open source components across dozens of ecosystems, the platform precisely identifies open source risk and provides expert remediation guidance, empowering developers to innovate faster. The full DevOps CI/CD integration ensures customer supply chain hygiene and the use of the highest quality parts at every step of the software manufacturing process.
