Enhances Operational Efficiency Through Customized Fixes for Open-Source Components
Persistent Systems introduces an exclusive open-source maintenance service, ensuring organizations stay current with patches, bug fixes, and the latest software releases. The service, staffed by a skilled team utilizing cutting-edge technologies and supported by a robust knowledge base, enables clients to seamlessly maintain their open-source software for business continuity.
More than 90% of an application’s software is constructed using open-source components. While open-source software offers numerous advantages, it also presents particular challenges in an enterprise environment. Organizations face delays in software upgrades and maintenance while waiting for the open-source community to provide fixes, which in turn means potentially missing software delivery and security compliance obligations. Persistent’s open-source maintenance service aims to address this challenge with a dedicated team focused on component upgrades while maintaining security and integrity.
“Organizations across industries are significantly lagging in software upgrades, and many issues discovered in open-source code remain unresolved for an indeterminate amount of time.”Nitish Shrivastava, Senior Vice President and Head of Product Business, Persistent
Persistent provides a range of offerings under this service, from a complimentary project assessment to two premium subscriptions, all of which can be accessed. The complimentary service provides valuable insights on the potential vulnerabilities in projects and areas of improvement, with recommendations to enhance software performance and security.
To opt in to tailored open-source solutions, the Company offers two subscriptions. One provides timely alerts and support for available solutions with customized fixes if solutions are unavailable within the open-source community; the premium subscription is a comprehensive package that provides end-to-end automated deployment of solutions, streamlining the implementation process. Each fix is tested, SLSA-3 compliant, and compatible with the project.
This service ensures open-source updates are compatible with existing software components, provides VEX (Vulnerability Exploitability eXchange) documents for potential vulnerabilities, and delivers pre-tested certified fixes for risks in a timely manner.
