Simplifying vulnerability management

For leading software companies like Sourcegraph, strong security engineering is critical. The industry’s shift in handling vulnerabilities, especially considering Software Bill of Materials (SBOMs), has been significant.

Sourcegraph faced hurdles in managing software vulnerabilities, consuming resources and impacting customer experiences. We provided them with a solution that transformed their approach to these challenges.

Chainguard Images, built on Wolfi OS, were a game-changer for Sourcegraph. With our Images, Sourcegraph simplified their development process and significantly enhanced their security controls. This led to a remarkable achievement of zero-known vulnerabilities in a short timespan.

Leveraging OpenVEX and SBOMs for advanced security

We also equipped Sourcegraph with OpenVEX and SBOMs, tools that allowed them to proactively manage security threats. This approach not only streamlined their process, but also heightened their security response capabilities.
