Founded in 2016 by Ian Folau (US Army Data Intelligence) and Nwamaka Imasogie (Chevron), GitLinks is a compliance and security-monitoring platform for open source implementations. The use of open source software in technology stacks has grown widely popular with a 400% in usage in the last 6 years. However, reducing development time with open source adoption presents its own challenges and risks that need to be managed. Security vulnerabilities in open source applications can be exploited and any gains in productivity can easily be wiped out with a data breach. This platform will make sure that you are legally compliant, always up to date, and secure.
