Easily detect open source issues directly in your IDE!


Addressing security requirements or best practices during development can often slow down developers.

WhiteSource’s Integrated Development Environment (IDE) Integrations, including support for Visual Studio, IntelliJ and Eclipse IDEs , are designed to work seamlessly within the development process, enabling developers to code more productively and securely.

Early Visibility While Coding

Gain immediate visibility about a component’s vulnerabilities as soon as it is added to your code

Effortless & Seamless Security

Maintain a security-conscious coding experience that doesn’t slow down development

Simplified & Quick Remediation

Remediate quickly with our suggested fixes for vulnerable libraries to save your time solving security issues

How Does it Work?

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.
