Bytesafe is a package management platform for a secure code supply chain.
A firewall for dependencies with secure hosting of all your dependencies in private registries. Continuous analysis, monitoring and scanning for potential issues. Read more
Software applications depend on both internal proprietary code as well as open source code developed by others.
Like any other supply chain, all externally sourced code an application uses need to be managed in terms of availability, security, licensing etc to avoid business risks involved.
Private & public packages included in Bytesafe are scanned for changes in composition, security & licenses compliance issues as well as compared to any Policies (rules) set in place.
By continuously monitoring registries users are able to identify issues early and avoid surprises at build time.
A dependency is an external piece of code or package version that is used by your project in some way. It is not uncommon for projects to have 100+ dependencies.
Direct dependencies are package versions specified in a projects configuration files, like
pom.xml. Indirect (or transitive) dependencies are dependencies of direct dependencies.

The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a data privacy law that applies to any company, such as Bytesafe (Bitfront AB), that processes data of EU residents, regardless of the company’s business location. Broadly, the GDPR requires that: Data of EU residents considered “personal” must be protected and processed only as permitted; Access to this data is controlled and restricted; Contracts with third party processors must contain certain specific terms regarding their processing of the data; EU residents have numerous rights with respect to their personal data, including the right to restrict processing and to know the personal data a company holds on them; and Specific guidelines for data security incident notifications are followed.
Bytesafe (Bitfront AB) acts as a data controller when processing personal data of its customers, and as data processor to the extent Bytesafe (Bitfront AB) processes customer personal data in connection with providing the services.
Bytesafe (Bitfront AB) captures Personal Data of our end-users, i.e. those individuals with Bytesafe accounts. Specifically, we capture name, email address and other information received from Microsoft, Github, Google through our OAuth2 / SSO or SAML integrations.
If you are thinking about initiating security vulnerability scanning (or other supply chain security measures with Bytesafe) and are concerned about the lawfulness of processing personal data in this context we recommend reviewing Recital 49 in the GDPR. Recital 49 suggests that the processing of personal data for the purposes of ensuring that your networks and information systems are secure and protected from malicious attacks constitutes a legitimate interest for you as a data controller.
We have collected some information regarding security within Bytesafe on our security page. Please feel free to contact us with any specific question on our Contact page.
A DPA will be applicable for customer’s within the EU and available here as well as a current list of Subprocessors. If you’d like us to sign a custom DPA, you can do that on an Enterprise plan. Reach out to our Sales team here.
