Securing Your Open Source Supply Chain is Easier Than You Think

As organizations include more open source software in their applications than ever before, securing software supply chains is a growing challenge. Open source ecosystems are vast and highly dynamic, just as they are meant to be. However, compromised dependencies need to be found and dealt with immediately, and manual approaches are simply unsustainable.
