WhiteSource’s GitHub integration allows users the ability to detect all open source components in their software with real time alerts and comprehensive reports
“We are delighted to be able to offer WhiteSource’s open source components management solution in a simple and easy to use integration for GitHub users,” said Rami Sass, CEO and Founder of WhiteSource. “At the core of WhiteSource’s product isn’t a sales pitch, but the developer experience. We’re a leader in what we do and the fact we’re built by developers for developers has produced a simple integration that both us and GitHub can be proud of.”
GitHub has over 15 million users and 38 million projects spanning from hobbyist websites to large corporations and even NASA projects. GitHub boasts one of the largest collections of open source software on the internet. With such a large amount of open source code and millions of users and projects depending on them security is a primary concern.
“GitHub allows developers to build great things and security is always a part of that equation.” Said Joe Wadcan, Head of Business Development at GitHub “We are delighted that WhiteSource offers an integration, as it provides valuable information within a developer's existing workflow on GitHub."
WhiteSource can integrate with CI servers, build tools, third-party repositories or GitHub accounts to detect all open source components in software, including all dependencies, within minutes.
