As such, many of our global customers have inquired about software composition analysis to help protect their toolchains, said Pradeep Govindasamy, CTO & President at Cigniti Technologies. “Partnering with Sonatype, who has the in-depth, precise intelligence around open source vulnerabilities, allows us to offer an ever-deeper sense of security to our customers. There is a clear synergy between Sonatype and Cigniti to create a successful partnership.”

Sonatype’s platform provides myriad of benefits to its users, that enable them to focus on innovating, and harnessing the power of open source, rather than worrying about its risk. For instance customers see:
