“WhiteSource’s continued momentum does follow an industry wide trend driven by market education regarding the utility of such tools,” said WhiteSource CEO Rami Sass. “What has been the biggest factor in our success is that we’ve always thought ahead, from being the first in the market to offer a continuous open source components management technology, to offering the first comprehensive open source security vulnerabilities tool. This intense drive on producing the most forward thinking product and hiring the right people to sell that product to the world is a winning combination.”
Side-by-side testing with competitors’ products has proven WhiteSource’s security vulnerabilities database to be the most comprehensive, covering 17 programming languages and platforms with a remarkable level of coverage for each language.
