According to the company, since npm started, it has been using ^Lift Security as a tool for assessing the security of the npm Registry, analyzing software published to that registry, and identifying vulnerabilities in open-source code.
“npm is where the Node Security Platform belongs,” said Adam Baldwin, founder of ^Lift Security, who will be joining npm, Inc. as its head of security. “All NSP users are npm users, and the security of open source code is core to npm’s mission. By combining our resources, we can deliver a continuous approach to security at scale, empowering millions of developers to build more secure code—and be prepared to defend against and respond to threats as they encounter them.”
The company also announced it will be releasing new security features later this month for users of the npm Registry. It will also release security products that are tailored to the unique requirements of corporate software developers and enterprises.
