Lexumo secures the world's open source software. Our cloud-based service enables developers to securely adopt the best open source available — so they can ship great products faster. Lexumo uses "Big Code" analytics to precisely identify critical vulnerabilities without the inaccuracies associated with legacy open source software (OSS) governance solutions, even when code has previously been modified or patched.
Built on a massively-scalable, AWS-based cloud stack, Lexumo's service integrates with existing developer workflows (Jenkins, Jira, etc.); provides actionable information in the form of detailed patching instructions; and continuously monitors your code for vulnerabilities without requiring any developer interaction.
