Whitesource Extends Offering to IaC Security, Unveiling Research Report on npm Vulnerability Remediation At AWS Re:Invent

The Software Composition Analysis leader now offers infrastructure as code (IaC) security and supply chain malware detection and mitigation for JavaScript and Ruby programming languages. 

TEL AVIV AND BOSTON – November 22, 2021 – WhiteSource, a leader in open source security and management, today announced that it will be attending AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas, November 29 – December 3, 2021.  The event, celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, brings together experts from around the world to discuss key topics about the power of cloud technology. 

At AWS re:Invent WhiteSource will unveil a new research report on security issues in npm packages. According to the vulnerability data presented in WhiteSource’s report, over 90% of vulnerable npm packages could be remediated by WhiteSource Renovate.  Renovate is a proactive dependency update technology that resolves security vulnerabilities before their publication in the National Vulnerability Database (NVD), at which point they become common knowledge to all users — including malicious players.

WhiteSource is proud to sponsor AWS re:Invent 2021 and will be hosting at booth #1657. In addition, re:Invent attendees are welcome to an expert session at the The MarketPlace Pavilion:
