Software Supply Chain Risk Management from the Inside-Out

The NetRise Platform simplifies software supply chain risk management by assessing risks and vulnerabilities within software and firmware, prioritizing risks based on exploitability. The firmware analysis, vulnerability management, and end to end Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) management capabilities — which include generation, ingestion, and enrichment with key insights into the numerous risks and vulnerabilities latent in firmware and software — enable public sector organizations to effectively manage and address the risks within firmware and software components. The powerful benefits of the NetRise Platform enable compliance with regulations and other government mandates, while effectively improving risk visibility and security efforts for all manner of devices.

The NetRise Platform enables software supply chain risk management by prioritizing risks based on exploitability, so that users have a clear path to the most effective and impactful remediations. Assessments are based on factors such as inclusion in the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Known Exploited Vulnerabilities (KEV) Catalog, and other key indicators of exploitability. Understanding which risks have the greatest potential impact and likelihood of exploitation allows for significant reductions in the overall risk of the environment much quicker than would be possible otherwise.

Vulnerabilities and risks are discovered through deep analysis of firmware and software components, producing the most complete and accurate SBOMs available — replete with Common Vulnerability and Exposures (CVEs), CISA KEVs, misconfigurations, and other sources of risk commonly found in connected devices across a variety of industries and networks. NetRise's SBOM management capabilities also grant key insights into the provenance of software components, enabling public sector organizations to avoid investments in devices running code from untrustworthy sources — such as third parties or nations historically known to represent a threat to public sector networks, or software components otherwise representing unwanted additional risk. These insights also enable organizations to conduct security assessments of new and old software and firmware versions, allowing for safer deployments and patching.
