In an analysis of 12 vendors performed by Gartner, Synopsys is proud to have received the highest score for our ability to satisfy the Software Supply Chain Security use case. Our application security testing (AST) portfolio can provide a software supply chain security solution that meets a variety of customer needs and requirements.
Synopsys SCA provides the foundation of a software supply chain security approach. Since almost every modern application uses some form of open source or external components, which are developed completely outside of the control of the organization utilizing them, they naturally represent the largest surface area for risk. Our SCA tools integrate directly within the application development pipeline to automatically scan for open source and third-party components in source code, container images, and firmware. The result is an accurate and complete SBOM that can be configured and exported to meet a wide variety of requirements. Each component identified and added to the SBOM will also be evaluated for security vulnerabilities, malicious packages, health and viability, and license conflicts.
Our SAST solutions fill in the gaps between third-party code, and work to harden code written in-house. Much like SCA, SAST can also be built into development and build tools to use standard events as triggers to run scans in the background. Our SAST customers enjoy fast, accurate results that provide developers with all the information needed to make the fix before the issue makes it to production.
We realize that the last thing teams need is yet another tool to onboard, configure, and consume results from. With Software Risk Manager, our ASPM solution, customers get a full software supply chain security solution—SCA, SAST, container scanning, developer enablement—in a single dashboard. This means that security and compliance teams define all their AST policy and consume and triage the correlated results in the same place. Any policy defined will be automatically enforced via SDLC integrations so that development teams can focus on innovating while protecting applications from upstream risk.
