How-To's IntelliJ IDEA Livestreams Security

Leverage Open-Source Code with Confidence

The pace of software development is accelerating and the cost of weak code security (vulnerabilities) can be really high. That’s why mitigating vulnerability risks is a must for everyday development.

For a while now, JetBrains IntelliJ IDEA has featured the Dependency Checker plugin powered by Checkmarx. The plugin identifies vulnerable packages and helps you secure your app before deployment, when it is too late to protect your code.  

How does it work in practice? Mala Gupta, together with guests Or Chen and Guy Lyuboshits from Checkmarx invite you to see what Checkmarx Dependency Checker looks like in action. Join us during our next live stream on Wednesday, August 31, at 5:00 pm CEST / 3:00 pm UTC.


Session abstract

The JetBrains Dependency Checker plugin powered by Checkmarx helps you leverage open-source code with confidence. Learn how the plugin integrates with IntelliJ IDEA to let you know if the open-source code you are including is vulnerable and see how it provides detailed information about vulnerabilities and suggested fixes. Join your JetBrains host and Checkmarx guests for a tour of the Dependency Checker and insight into what goes on behind the curtains to power the plugin.
