CASE STUDY Global IT and Services Firm Remediates Open Source Security Risks How a Leading Provider of Consumer Transaction Technologies Enabled Open Source Software Security and Compliance Management for Customers HIGHLIGHTS - A top provider of consumer transaction technologies decided to shift from manual open source tracking to automated open source management. - Manual tracking was costly and inefficient, leaving them open to security risks and license compliance issues. - WhiteSource plugins were easily deployed into the build and CI tools to monitor and report on open source components in real time. - The R&D teams receive real time data regarding security vulnerabilities, compliance risks and recommended remediation. - Fixes and updates to open source components and product libraries are implemented at the early stages of the development lifecycle. The Challenge A global leader in consumer transaction technologies with over 30,000 employees based in multiple regions and customers located in nearly 200 countries, had always monitored its open source components and usage manually. In recent years, vulnerable open source components have become a top threat, and known security vulnerabilities are still the leading cause of exposure to data breaches and cyber threats. The organization had come to understand that the manual tracking system they had in place was extremely costly both in time and human resources, as well as being faulty and leaving the company and its customers open to multiple risks.
