Developer-first open source security

“Snyk’s cloud-native AST capabilities are mature and granular. It provides detailed information about identified vulnerabilities, as well as automated remediation advice. Snyk also checks if the vulnerability is actually reachable inside the code or not, in order to prioritize fixes.”
“It’s the only security product I’ve ever had, and I’ve been working in security for quite a while, that my development teams have actually said, they love”
“Snyk’s integration with GitHub allowed us to get up and running with little to no work. 2 days after we purchased, we already had Snyk monitoring 1,200 repositories”
“Fixes are one of the most important features in Snyk. Once the tests are performed automatically as part of the CI/CD process it is essential to be able to fix the issues quickly”
