Debricked and CyberRes, now helping companies use open source better and saferWho is Debricked?

Debricked began in 2015 as a research project at the Lund university and then made its debut as a startup in 2018, becoming the Debricked we know and love today, which resides in Malmö, Sweden. Their goal is to help companies all around the world be able to use open source in a better and safer way. Their software is innovating how organizations can secure their software supply chain from beginning to end.

What do they do?

Debricked provides three main tools (Security Vulnerabilities, License Compliance, and Community Health) that truly put the developer first. They help your team spend less time on not only finding and solving security and compliance issues, but spending more time writing code. They all work together to secure the use of open source code and development, but each have a unique story. Let’s get into those:

  • Security Vulnerabilities: Living by the motto “Know, Prevent, Fix” this tool helps to automate the process of managing the vulnerabilities in open source. It not only is easy to integrate, have your first scan completed, and receive results, but you can do it all within minutes and a few simple clicks. This tool takes a developer-focused approach to managing open source so that you can know the threats that will actually pose a risk, not just the false positives. Now, the “code that cried threat” constantly clogging up your to-do list is no more! Solving the vulnerabilities has two easy solutions of a manual update or creating an automated pull request for fixes. You can also create customized rules and policies to automatically help prevent new threats from entering in your codebase.
  • License Compliance: You can stop stressing about having a compliance expert on call when you have this tool as it simplifies and automates the whole process of license compliance. It will automate intake control, understand and evaluate the risks, and report and analyze as you go. In addition, it will also provide report documents that you will be able to share with relevant stakeholders to ensure that everyone is on the same page.
  • Community Health: Being able to weigh the pros and cons of different open source dependencies is important before deciding which ones to bring on board. "The tool gives you all the insights needed to create a healthy, high quality codebase. The 4-step process of search & find, compare, evaluate, and monitor is accessible from the click of your mouse. 

Why Debricked?

Debricked is not just for one team member or for one function. It is here to support your entire DevSecOps team. It is referred to as “the Engineer’s dream, the Analyst’s heaven, and the Captain’s bridge”. It is truly meant to be a team player and benefit the organization as a whole.
