About Snyk

Snyk is an application security and testing platform designed to help businesses find, prioritize and remediate vulnerabilities across open source libraries, codes and containers.

The platform enables developers to scan and test projects directly from the Git repository and add automated Snyk test into CI/CD pipeline to prevent vulnerabilities from reaching applications during the development stage. Using the integrated IDE plugins, developers can perform testing in real-time and manage issues within workflows. Its semantic analysis feature allows testers to process codes in bulk and track modified patterns for potential threats.

Snyk offers integration with several third-party applications such as JIRA, Jenkins, Slack, GitHub, Teamcity, Eclipse and mor...

Best tool for addressing the concerns of using open source libraries.

When I started using Snyk I found the reports useful but still too easy to ignore. So I added Snyk to build pipelines to fail builds that included high risk vulnerabilities. Snyk is now even better and warns me before I even merge my pull requests. In a world where the time from vulnerability being announced to exploit being used is decreasing rapidly it is crazy not to use a service like this. Snyk is by far the best tool I have found in this area

Pros

Objective reports on vulnerabilities in code we produce GitHub Integration

Cons

Having open source builds count towards your paid count if you are not careful

A necessary and reliable companion in the fight for security

Snyk is allowing us to make good use of the wealth of great open source software out there, without compromising on security.

Pros

As a long time fan of open source software, keeping track of security issues amidst an ever growing software stack was increasingly an impossible task. I was so grateful to find a service like Snyk that does the hard work for me - keeping an eye on any security issues so I can focus on building great software!

Cons

The pricing structure gets extremely expensive for medium to large companies, but thankfully for smaller organisations there is a free tier which covers our needs.

Your security agent

Overall, the plugin is pretty handy to get started with but I would like to see smarter analysis.

Pros

The automated repository analysis is pretty good and can be easy to plug into your PR (pull request) validator

Cons

The security analysis is very primitive and often flags false positive which has to be fixed with manual override or skipping the PR validation check

Snyc guards open source

Snyc guards our Node.js projects in our Medical applications

Pros

Active scan for malicious software. Freeware model for small businesses with single project. Nice dashboard and nice CLI for SSH access.

Cons

The cheapest paid plan should cost a bit less

A good easy to use security tool

We were looking to have a quick method of checking for vulnerabilities in open source, Snyc fir that bill perfectly. It was fast to set up and the cost was quite low. A great tool.

Pros

I liked the easy of setting the tool up. I did not have to spend a lot of time configuring this tool.

Cons

The user interface can be a bit short on details. When I go to use it, there are really just a few items that say "everything is fine".

Reasons for Choosing Snyk

Price, these other tools were fairly easy to configure as well, but they quite expensive. You got a lot for what you paid for, but we really didn't need that at the time.
