Md. software firm adds container analysis capability

A Maryland software supply chain automation firm has added a new analytical capability to its software.

Some rapid software development processes use the concept of containers, or a common set of building blocks of code. Fulton-based Sonatype Inc. says its new LifeCycle Container Analysis feature lets users of its Nexus Lifecycle product examine the quality and security of software within containers in the same way that they can evaluate the quality of other software.

The new feature lets Nexus Lifecycle analyze the quality of things inside the container and automatically apply and manage governance policies based on the results. It can see if Java, NuGet, npm, or JavaScript components have known security vulnerabilities, license risks, or quality problems, the company said in a statement.
