A knowledge of programming and software development will help you through this press release of a new company. Endor Labs has exited stealth mode today, Oct. 10, 2022. I keep getting releases with new names for products. This one is Dependency Lifecycle Management Platform. The goal is to help development and security teams maximize software reuse by safely evaluating, maintaining, and updating dependencies.

  • The average enterprise has more than 40,000 open source dependencies directly downloaded by developers. Each of those dependencies can bring in on average 77 other (transitive) dependencies creating a massive, uncontrollable sprawl that slows down development and increases the attack surface across multiple dimensions.
  • Performs deep analytics on each open source software (OSS) dependency.
  • Having a full understanding of their dependency graph also lets customers generate and analyze accurate SBOMs, and have a single source of truth for their entire software inventory.
  • This lifecycle approach to dependency management means it becomes easier than ever to reuse software across the org.
  • The company has raised $25 million in seed financing from Lightspeed Venture Partners, Dell Technologies Capital, and Sierra Ventures, and several industry luminaries who have recognized the problem Endor Labs is solving. These include CEOs and executives from Palo Alto Networks, Zoom, Snowflake, Zscaler, Netskope, Rubrik, Databricks, Microsoft, and more. 
  • For more information, Co-founder & CEO Varun Badhwar has posted this blog on the founding of Endor Labs.
