GitHub Dependabot

Application Security integrated with Github Dependabot

Dependabot automatically updates your Github dependencies, and flags any vulnerable dependencies to keep your organization secure.

Nucleus integrates with Dependabot to deliver mature vulnerability management to your code. Using vulnerabilities in dependencies discovered by Dependabot scans, Nucleus can triage threats to your organization’s assets and aggregate dependency vulnerabilities with vulnerability data from other scanners across all assets in your organization to deliver a centralized security dashboard.

Use Cases

Common security use cases for Dependabot with Nucleus include:

  • Gain unified visibility into source code vulnerabilities across github organizations, teams, repositories and branches Analyze code for vulnerabilities using CodeQL.
  • Prioritize Application Vulnerabilities Based on Risk including business criticality, threat exploitability and Github metadata.
  • Surface source code vulnerabilities for developer remediation that aligns with their existing development workflows.
