With the Phylum Community Edition, users can quickly understand valuable risk insights based on our unique approach to defending the software supply chain.” Peter Morganco-founder and president of Phylum.
The Phylum Risk Framework
Phylum’s proactive approach to analyzing the risks inherent in the software supply chain is based on years of research and observation.
Rather than taking a retrospective approach by analyzing incidents after they have occurred, Phylum begins by consuming all the information available on open source packages and structuring the data in a consistent format for analysis. Layers of analytics, heuristics, and ML models then comb through the data to find risk indicators. Deductive analysis is then applied to take into account the full context surrounding each indicator, and identified risks are prioritized based on the risk tolerance criteria established by the organization.
This enables Phylum to effectively surface and prioritize meaningful issues before an incident occurs, in a way that doesn’t overwhelm security teams. These risks can then be addressed before they lead to compromise, outages, service degradation at runtime, or legal liability.
“Given the large number of components involved in the development of modern software, unearthing meaningful findings becomes critical – as well as accurately prioritizing issues. Phylum defines the attack surface and performs the deductive analysis, and users define risk tolerance based on of project needs. combination results in a significantly smaller attack surface and categorized risks prioritized based on business objective,” said Brad Crawfordvice president of product at Phylum and co-author of the MITER ATT&CK Framework.
The Phylum Risk Framework is the standard in software supply chain security defined by the following categories: malicious code, software vulnerabilities, authorship risk, reputation, license abuse, and engineering risk.
