More Commentary from Xmirror

While Open Source is gaining popularity in software development, the risk of Open Source components vulnerabilities and license compliance is also noteworthy. Focuses on Integrated detection and defence of continuous threats in DevSecOps software supply chain with two engines of code-vaccine and active defence technologies, our self-developed 3rd generation DevSecOps AI-Adaptive Threat Management System mainly includes both integrated development and operation agile security products covering pivotal parts from threat modelling, Open Source management, threat revealing, threat simulation as well as detection and response, and software supply chain security service characterized by the actual attack and defence confrontation. Thousands of corporations have embraced our solution for an efficient software supply chain.

Moreover, depending on its leading ability to detect Open Source application vulnerabilities, OpenSCA has been recognized as one of the most Valuable Open Source Projects in Gitee.

We attach great importance to cooperating with other organizations relevant to Open Source and software supply chain. Apart from joining OpenChain, we’ve been selected as one of the first members of Trustworthy Open Source Compliance and Software Supply Chain Security Lab launched by CAICT.
