The role of the developer continues to change as they sit on the front line of application and even cloud infrastructure security. Today, developers are focused on innovating fast and improving security, but how do high-performing teams accomplish this? They commit code frequently, release often and update dependencies regularly (608x faster than others).

In this webinar, we'll discuss the key traits of high-performing teams and how that impacts the role of the developer.

Key Takeaways:

  • Choose the best third party dependencies
  • Determine the lowest effort upgrades between open source versions
  • Solve for issues in both direct and transitive dependencies with a single-click
  • Block and quarantine suspicious open source components
