WhiteSource vs Other Tools available in the Market
Here is the latest SCA Forrester Wave Report. One of the main reasons for this leading position of WhiteSource, High above everybody else is the revolutionary WhiteSource Prioritize (AKA Effective Usage Analysis) which really changed the game when it comes to manage open source vulnerabilities.
FOR SECURITY & RISK PROFESSIONALS
The Forrester Wave™: Software Composition Analysis, Q2 2019
WhiteSource reduces the time it takes to remediate through prioritization. WhiteSource has recently introduced the ability to prioritize vulnerabilities by performing static scans to understand if the vulnerable part of a component is being directly called by the application. If it isn’t, the vulnerability is deprioritized. Another recently released feature is to automatically remediate vulnerabilities by creating pull requests to upgrade to a version that complies with company policy.
Customers praise WhiteSource’s broad language coverage and customer support but note that the product could do a better job of visualizing transitive dependencies. WhiteSource has very few weaknesses, but the bill of materials (BOM) functionality falls short, and to keep pace, WhiteSource will need to offer out-of-the-box comparison between current and historic BOMs.
WhiteSource is best for companies that require scanning at the earliest points of the SDLC and are looking for prioritization and automatic remediation.
