The Service

Dependency Management for a safer code supply chain

Bytesafe® is a SaaS service that allows you to manage both internal and external JavaScript packages with the use of private npm registries.

Having all your own packages and external code dependencies centrally in Bytesafe allows for continuous monitoring, scanning and control of what code you are using. Knowing what (and who’s) code you are using is at the core of securing your code supply chain!

Our service is built to make information accessible for everyone involved in the secure software development lifecycle (SSDLC/SDLC). We offer features for everyone from Developers, Test Engineers, Devops, Security Teams to Business Stakeholders.

The key components of the Bytesafe offering is:

  • Package Availability - Hosting and caching of private and public npm packages in private registries
  • Package Insights - Identification, management and visualization of dependencies
  • Security - Security scanning to detect vulnerabilities
  • License compliance - License identification and scanning for compliance
  • Business rules - Policies to control, restrict or allow what dependencies are used
  • Problem management - Issue tracking and remediation (coming soon)

Open source code is used everywhere! And it only continues to grow. As such many Developers are already making us a part of their everyday routines as businesses around the world are waking up to the potential risks of using open source in their applications.

Hope you too will enjoy our approach of securing your code supply chain!

Startup innovation. Built ground up to scale

Platform for continuous analysis of your dependencies

We are a close-knit and highly efficient team of engineers, based in Sweden. We have leveraged our flexibility, innovation and knowledge to build a dependency management platform that truly scales from individual developers to large Enterprise teams.

Our idea has always been to leverage the Bytesafe dependency management platform for all other features we offer with Bytesafe. By including your package dependencies in one central place, you allow for continuous analysis of the content within.

Identifying what dependencies are actually used, together with open source package licenses, security issues and much more - creates awareness of potential issues. To control exactly what packages should be allowed and used in the organization, Bytesafe offers a range of Policies, Plugins and Integrations. With these, users can adapt the flow of packages to their business rules.

History

Bytesafe, an idea sprung from experience

We have seen and experienced first hand the challenges that customers face when managing and deploying code. Fast moving organizations makes it increasingly harder to know what dependencies and versions are actually used at different stages of the release cycle. And if you don't manage risks like this, they will most likely come back and bite you.

The idea for Bytesafe came out of the need for a service that could simplify dependency management, a service that could increase the level of control and security. One that would have saved us time and unnecessary headaches. We wish we had Bytesafe!

Our Mission

Make the JavaScript ecosystem a safer place

Our mission is to make the use of your own proprietary code together with external open source components safer in your apps. Both from a technical and business perspective, bridging gaps between developers, security teams and the business managers.

With our team's experience we know that controlling all important aspects related to your code supply can be a hassle. Therefore we always strive to reduce complexity and make things so that they are easy and fast to use.

We started with JavaScript and npm. Simply because this ecosystem is undoubtedly the largest, both in terms of developers and applications, but also in terms of usage of open source dependencies. But with other ecosystems to follow.

In short: Our goal is to make Bytesafe a safe haven for your code supply chain.
