Addressing security requirements or best practices during development can often slow down developers.
WhiteSource’s Integrated Development Environment (IDE) Integrations, including support for IntelliJ IDEA and Eclipse, are designed to work seamlessly within the development process, enabling developers to code more productively and securely.
Gain immediate visibility about a component’s vulnerabilities as soon as it is added to your code
Maintain an interruption-free yet security-conscious coding experience that does not mandate explicit security checks that slow down development
Integrate security seamlessly into the software development lifecycle, negating the need for additional tools
When an open-source component is added to the pom.xml file, it is examined by the WhiteSource plugin. If the component has a known vulnerability, it is marked with a “light bulb” icon.
This pane lists reported vulnerabilities associated with open source components referenced within the project’s pom.xml, including transitive dependencies.
Once a vulnerable component is detected, icons are displayed offering additional security information.
