What’s It All About?
WhiteSource’s Browser Integration allows your developers to see a snapshot of the component’s open source security details before downloading it to their repository. The Chrome extension quickly identifies open source component package references on web pages such as Stack Overflow, Maven Central, and more.
With a simple click of the icon on the page, developers can view important details to help them decide whether or not to add a new component. Details include known vulnerabilities, quality scores, whether the component is currently in use within your organization.
Selecting the right component the first time can make your team’s development process more effective, saving you valuable time and money by preventing costly tear and replace ops later down the line when nearing release deadlines.
