Results are available in the WhiteSource Essentials application, a governance dashboard that provides a granular view of your open source inventory, security vulnerabilities with actionable remediation, and compliance data.

Key Benefits

  • Accurate results: The WhiteSource database provides the largest coverage of open source vulnerabilities, with over 200 supported programing languages and continuous monitoring of multiple vulnerability databases including the NVD, over 20 security advisories, GitHub commits and issues, popular open source project issue trackers, and a dedicated security analysts team.

  • No false positives: A proprietary algorithm matches the reported vulnerabilities to the actual affected open source libraries in your code, ensuring no false positive alerts.
