See What Our Customers Have to Say:


“I kept on losing sight of whether there are any vulnerabilities in my products because we keep introducing software that isn’t our own. After testing WhiteSource, I was able to bring that to my boss, showing him the return on investment and noting that this thing pays for itself.”
Jeremy Bailey, Applications Development Manager, Northern Safety


“I have been using WhiteSource a lot to remove known vulnerabilities. The more I use it the more I like it. It has saved me hours, days, weeks of work. We are currently using the java and docker analyzers and are soon plugging in our legacy products.”
