A modern web application today is made up of 90 percent third-party code. We use third-party modules, platforms, domains, and more to get our applications running quickly and well. However, we often overlook the threat involved in running someone else’s code as though we wrote it ourselves. Each such piece of code may be malicious, compromised, or have vulnerabilities – and we’d be none the wiser.

In this demo we’ll introduce Snyk Stranger, a tool that helps you better track and control these security concerns easily and quickly.
