Secure Your Software Supply Chain
Gain Visibility to Risk in Licensed Software
Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software applications are a part of every organization. Vulnerabilities in this software present risks to your organization, not the vendors’. This includes vulnerabilities in the open-source components your COTS providers use.
A vendor-provided Software Bill of Material (SBOM) would make available the information needed to evaluate the risk associated with deploying their software. Unfortunately, this is rarely available as vendors choose to keep secret the components they use.
Apply Binary Software Composition Analysis (SCA)
Inventory, Vulnerabilities, Weaknesses
There is a solution to this problem. CodeSonar is a Binary SCA tool that quickly produces a SBOM without the need for source code and without violating commercial software licenses. Instead of reverse engineering or decompiling the binary, CodeSonar identifies artifacts from open source components that survive compilation to generate an SBOM and a list of known vulnerabilities in the detected components, including any indirect dependencies.
Implement Trust, But Verify
Second Check Your Vendors
Most COTS providers understand the importance of secure software to their customers and their reputation. Using CodeSentry allows organizations to verify the security controls of their vendors by producing an independent SBOM and list of vulnerable components. This “Trust, but Verify” approach enables open discussions about the risks associated with deploying COTS software and any compensating controls that may be necessary to mitigate risks.
Put CodeSentry Into Practice
Production-Ready Binary SCA
A large multinational financial services company with more than 3,000 employees utilizes COTS applications to support business-critical functions as well as day-to-day productivity. To mitigate exposure risk the company reduced their Software Application Authorization time, to validate and authorize new applications prior to placing into production, from four months to just weeks by introducing binary SCA to augment their dedicated penetration testing and overcome cost and scalability challenges.
