The need for efficiency and speed in developing web applications is driving increasing adoption of open source and containers. However, in attempting to expedite development by leveraging open source, code reuse and third-party scripts, enterprises face greater potential for risk. The Snyk 2020 State of Open Source Security Report found that the bulk of the open source vulnerabilities discovered are considered to be high severity. Furthermore, according to PerimeterX, as much as 70% of a typical website code is third-party scripts.
