Being able to visualize the components and track data across them is invaluable for any public company's security program."
– Jacob Elziq, Armature Systems
"The healthcare industry is in the midst of a mass migration to the cloud. Health systems have complex tech stacks made up of off the shelf and custom solutions, and with the stringent security and privacy regulations of the industry, it is of utmost importance that health systems have robust ways to manage their software supply chain vendors."
– Punit Soni, Suki
"Conventional industries, like the construction industry, have started adopting software products in the past decades. As the number of applications is rising, the need for automation, integrations, 3rd party libraries, and APIs is also becoming crucial."
– Yaser Masoudnia, BlueTape
"Companies must be cognizant that their existing tools may not provide as much (if any) value in the cloud. Visibility is the key to determining whether old tools still provide value, and if not, what should be replaced."

"Every financial institution, regulated by FDIC, FINRA and other agencies, needs to have a clear understanding of the risk that all 3rd party software components pose in their own software stack. This is not a choice, it's a necessity. Those that tempt fate will get burnt."
– Bam Azizi, Front
"APIs, Code Libraries, OS libraries and Standalone Software - for online businesses these are the equivalent of property, plant and equipment that offline businesses used to rely on. Understanding which component plays what kind of part in the one's business is critical for enterprises to manage their revenues."
-Peeyush Ranjan, Google
"Much like “no man is an island”, we all know information technology is no island either. Hence, gaining visibility into the security of the software components we leverage is critical if we’re serious about reducing risk."

Riscosity cuts down back and forth with your client’s security/compliance/privacy team(s) by weeks. This allows customers to recognize revenue earlier in the quarter. Riscosity makes it possible to demonstrate a complete understanding of your 3rd party data flows with your SafeChain(TM) Certificate.
Understanding True Business Risk Exposure
Riscosity generates a complete Executive Order 14028 compliant Software Bill Of Materials (SBOM) in minutes. With coverage spanning APIs, code, libraries and more, customers can clearly understand the critical dependencies of their revenue generating services. Reduce your MTTR by 70%. Finding out about CVEs and the patch itself is not the challenge. The real problem is prioritizing what in your software inventory is most affected by the issue at hand.
Preventing Accidental Compliance Violations
Riscosity helps implement Trust But Verify on 3rd party API data transfers to make sure what enterprises think they are transferring to vendors is actually what is being shared. Business logic errors due to weak input validation silently allow sensitive information to pass through; and Riscosity detects and prevents this issue.
Tracking Data Flows with Vendors
Riscosity helps customers respond quickly to “Right to be forgotten” requests and track down which piece of data was shared with which specific vendor(s). Thus, allowing a clear data flow diagram of all interaction with 3rd party data processors. With Riscosity, achieve and demonstrate better compliance with GDPR, CPRA (CCPA) and other privacy centric guidance.
The technology industry is now a colossus with systems that run into billions of dollars and cannot be replaced. This has made 3rd party integrations a necessary component of the software industry. One of the biggest challenges we now face is that the integrations are black-boxes. Lack of visibility into what systems the APIs are invoking, what information is being shared, who the 3rd parties are and their security profile is a serious concern, and can introduce a significant risk to the overall security posture of your products. A product is only as secure as the weakest link in the chain, and having that visibility is an important factor in delivering products that live up to the trust placed by your customers.
The SafeChain™ Certification Program
The SafeChain™ Certification enables Riscosity’s customers to demonstrate the highest level of assurance, akin to SLSA level 4, for their entire software supply chain from a 3rd party exposure perspective. The certification program ensures that companies can provide to their prospective clients an independently verifiable certificate which demonstrates that the potential client will not get compromised as a result of buying the customer’s software.
The Certification program provides an attestation which can show the building blocks of the software a client is about to purchase and deploy. This enables a potential client to check off all necessary pre purchase due diligence in minutes instead of weeks.
The various certification levels progress upwards based upon the amount of security guidance implemented by the certified party. Average timelines to obtain Level 1 certification can be as less as 1 calendar week and for Level 3 can range from 30-60 calendar days.
There is no charge for the certification process for Riscosity customers, and non customers may also get certified for a small fee.
