App security at your fingertips

Reduce open source and licensing risk with automated, shift-left security across the entire software supply chain.

Minimize open source risk quickly

Don’t let your code go uncontrolled. Be secure all the time—without manual reviews.


hours per month saved on OSS governance and review


reduced time spent identifying and remediating vulnerabilities


reduction in probability of a security breach

Enforce policies automatically

Your teams decide together what level of risk your company is comfortable with. Then automatically enforce policies early and everywhere across the SDLC with few false positives or negatives. No manual review required.

Protect against risk that your software can be exploited in ways that are harmful to your business or customers.

Protect against legal risk from open source license obligations. An example is the GPL license which requires public disclosure of source code.

Protect against risk from low-quality components. Sonatype uses a variety of metrics to assess quality including age and popularity.

This is a catch-all category to protect against any other kind of risk, usually related to organizational priorities. One example could be ownership of a component.

“Sonatype Platform doesn't presume how you want to use it. It provides you with information. It provides you with data and then it gives you the tools to take that information, customize it, and do what you want with it.”

Block vulnerable components

  • Keep compromised components out
    Prevent both known and unknown open source vulnerabilities from entering the SDLC with Sonatype Repository Firewall. You control what you allow into your repository.

  • Quarantine suspicious components
    Leverage AI behavioral analysis to send suspicious components into quarantine until the Sonatype security research team can review.

  • Integrate with your repository
    Protect your Sonatype Nexus Repository or JFrog Artifactory. Both connect seamlessly with Sonatype Repository Firewall for early identification and warning.
“Through the use of the Sonatype Platform, our team can proactively ensure open source security vulnerabilities are precisely identified, managed and resolved before they can impact our customers.”

    Establish an automated early warning system to identify newly discovered defects and receive detailed intelligence on them, including precise root cause.

  • Generate a Software Bill of Materials
    Identify precisely what’s in your apps and containers with detailed SBOM reporting in minutes. Know your open source components, along with their dependencies.

  • Remediate vulnerabilities quickly
    View any concerns from a central dashboard. Prioritize remediation and development work based on detailed intelligence and track your progress.
