WhiteSource Diffend allows you to manage the risks that come with using open-source third-party dependencies. It is a platform that provides security scanning for malware detection and risk management solution for your dependencies. We act detects and blocks malicious dependency updates.

Diffend acts as a shield between you and the wild world of open-source libraries, allowing you to define policies around the usage of libraries and their versions.

Under the hood, we run extensive security checks to find potential vulnerabilities and exploits both for Ruby gems and NPM packages.

When you run your package manager commands with our plugin, all of this knowledge, policies and research is combined into one easy-to-understand verdict that you or your security team can use to control and mitigate potential problems before they hit production.
