SAN FRANCISCO -- Palamida, the leader in application security for open source vulnerability detection, announced today that it has joined the McAfee® Security Innovation Alliance as a founding member. Through the program, Palamida will integrate their vulnerability reporting capabilities with McAfees ePolicy Orchestrator® (ePO), enabling customers to extend the scope of their application security strategy to include open source components while mitigating risk.
Open source continues to be a key driver for innovation. IDC predicts that overall, 86% of OSS projects are in some form of production deployment and usage within organizations, with 70% of critical or high importance to the organization.
Open source is no more or no less risky than proprietary code, said Mark Tolliver, CEO of Palamida. But its use often goes undocumented and as such falls outside of existing application security policies. Palamidas integration with ePO enables joint customers to manage and secure their use of open source as part of a comprehensive security strategy.
