“npm is where the Node Security Platform belongs,” said Adam Baldwin, founder of ^Lift Security, who joins 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 ^Lift acquisition is the first in a series of strategic security initiatives npm plans to announce in the coming weeks.
Later this month, npm will introduce a series of new security features available to every user of the npm Registry, directly integrated into npmjs.com and the npm command-line software tool. The company also will introduce a suite of security products tailored to the unique requirements of corporate software developers and enterprises in areas that include auditing, insights and analysis, security policy and software licensing.
“Security is the responsibility of every part of an organization, so it needs to be intermixed with engineering, operations and application deployment,” Schlueter said. “npm is, and will remain, at the center of these workflows. As companies increasingly rely on open source software and integrating this with proprietary code, we are uniquely positioned to help.”
