Nexus Firewall

Nexus Firewall is the first line of defense against blocking open source malicious components from entering the user's SDLC, and the firewall lets you take the good and leave the bad, by isolating incompatible components and enforcing open source policies while proxying.


What is a Nexus Firewall?

Nexus Firewall


(Nexus Firewall) is a perimeter quality control for software development, similar to a network firewall, it takes advantage of rules that are defined which automatically protect the user from entering unacceptable software components and a host of others to prevent them from exiting their application development.


Nexus Firewall is the first line of defense against dangerous open source components. It provides tools to prevent dangerous components from entering the user's software supply chain, allowing them to proactively manage risks while accelerating development by reducing rework.


Benefits of a Nexus Firewall


early warning


Reduce security breach risks by automatically blocking known vulnerabilities and malicious OSS versions.


Note: "OSS" is an abbreviation for "Office of Strategic Services".


Automatic protection from unknown risks


Newly released malicious and suspicious components are automatically blocked, so the user's SDLC is always safe.


Note: “SDLC” is an acronym for “Software Development Life Cycle.”


automatic emission


Components that remove suspicious ratings are automatically released for consumption by developers, reducing the time it takes for the user to review components and reducing friction.


End-to-end user SDLC control


Determine which components are allowed in a user's SDLC based on common risk factors, including age, popularity, and license credentials.


Return safe versions


The firewall automatically returns secure versions from the required component version range so that developers spend less time choosing the most secure version.


Automatically detect and prevent malware attacks


Minimize the risk of a security breach by automatically blocking malicious vulnerabilities and versions (OSS) from downloading to the user's repository. Software that has been identified as known maliciousness is automatically blocked from downloading. Developers will not even have a chance to select components with known vulnerabilities.


Those potentially suspicious and malicious threats are also isolated until confirmed or removed from vulnerabilities by Nexus Firewall's security research team, and if scanned, they will be automatically released for developers to consume.


Note: "OSS" is an abbreviation for "Office of Strategic Services".


Nexus Firewall Alternatives


Indusface firewall


Indusface is a fully managed web application firewall that ensures risk-based protection with DDoS, API risk, and bot mitigation services while ensuring web acceleration with secure CDN.


Note: “DDoS” is short for “Distributed Denial-of-Service Attack.”

Note: “CDN” is an abbreviation for “Content Delivery Network.”


Invicti Vulnerability Scanner


Significantly reduces the risk of attacks using Invicti (formerly known as Netsparker), enabling accurate and automated application security testing unmatched by any other solution.


SafeGuard Cyber ​​Security Platform


SafeGuard Cyber ​​is a security platform (SaaS) that provides cloud-native defense for critical cloud communications applications that organizations increasingly rely on, such as Microsoft Teams, Slack, Zoom, Salesforce, and social media. As the adoption of these tools increases, the blind spot of security operations is increasing, resulting in increased risks and vulnerabilities to ransomware, commercial compromise, and leakage of confidential information.


Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service


(Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service) is a full-featured cloud-delivered application security service that protects all applications from all threats in just minutes.


K2 Safety Platform


Complete Application Protection and Zero Day Attack Prevention The K2 security platform is highly effective in detecting increasingly complex attacks targeting applications, often undetected by network and endpoint security solutions such as Web Application Firewall (WAF) and Endpoint Discovery and its response (EDR).


Note: “WAF” is short for “Web Application Firewall”.

Note: “EDR” is an abbreviation for “Endpoint Detection and Response”.


The K2 platform automatically creates a map for each application at runtime which is used to determine the correct implementation of the application. This results in highly accurate detection of the attack eliminating almost all false alerts. The K2 platform can also be deployed in the cloud, on-premises, or other environments. Hybrid and protects web applications.


(Nexus Firewall) prevents unwanted components such as (JavaScript) and (Java) or with known vulnerabilities from entering the user's pipeline, it also informs the user as soon as any components are found to be
