Endor Labs launches global Hyperdrive programme to provide software supply chain security

The new Hyperdrive partner programme enables organisations of all sizes to embrace open-source software with confidence.

Endor Labs, creators of the Dependency Lifecycle Management platform helping development and security teams maximise the use of open-source software, OSS, announced 100% commitment to the channel. It launched Endor Labs Hyperdrive, a global partner programme designed to create technology combinations for supply chain security, dependency selection and lifecycle management.

In an environment where the software dependency lifecycle is a vital factor in technology development, Endor Labs Hyperdrive sets a new standard in inter-company collaboration to protect entire software inventories and turbo-charge application development.

Inaugural partners include CleverBits, Fortifire, Grant Thornton, Intuitive Cloud, TachTech, Tevora and Zinfinity. By featuring Endor Labs technology in their solution sets, companies participating in the Hyperdrive programme gain a powerful competitive advantage. The capabilities are designed to earn the trust of risk-conscious executives and organisations concerned with compliance, accountability, and control.

By contrast, most available solutions come up short. For example, Software Composition Analysis, SCA tools lack context on how the dependencies are being used and drown developers with endless false positives. Some options are unable to detect malicious dependencies or prioritise remediation and can’t contribute to OSS selection. Finally, a typical SBOM, Software Bill of Materials—once touted as the ideal option for true transparency—is typically incomplete and doesn’t list all components being used.

With the Endor Labs platform, the entire OSS lifecycle can be managed, all the way from dependency selection through remediation and management. Companies get to select better dependencies, then manage and update them optimally, and gain enhanced visibility through the dependency graph. There is also vulnerability detection based on known and unknown indicators of risk, along with prioritisation and remediation. The technology helps create comprehensive SBOMs and eases compliance management.

These are major advantages in a market where:

  • The average enterprise has more than 40,000 open-source dependencies directly downloaded by developers.
  • Each of these dependencies can bring in, on average, 77 other transitive dependencies, creating a massive and uncontrollable sprawl that slows development, even as it increases the attack surface across multiple dimensions.

The Endor Labs technology accelerates the POC and selection process for prospective clients of partners in the Hyperdrive programme, eliminating the need for complex configurations or architecture reviews. Hyperdrive partners will receive the full complement of expert presales support, solution deployment, and ongoing customer success.

Hyperdrive partners directly benefit from unlocking new services revenue streams from advising, building, and running OSS lifecycle programmes. Endor Labs understands the value of ecosystem partners and is committed to a channel first go-to-market strategy.

Hyperdrive is available to partners in North America, South America, Europe, Middle East and Africa and Asia-Pacific.

“Open source software gives organisations a huge boost in development velocity, and that is why more than 80% of the code in modern applications is repurposed from existing OSS resources,” said Andrew Davidson, VP of Business Development and Alliances at Endor Labs.

Endor Labs is led by 3X founder and category builder, Varun Badhwar as CEO and built by proven builders from companies like Palo Alto Networks, RedLock, Microsoft, Sonatype, Meta, Amazon, Uber and more. The company is funded by Lightspeed Venture Partners, Dell Technologies Capital, and Sierra Ventures, and has already won the confidence, investment, and endorsement of 40+ industry-leading Silicon Valley CISOs and business leaders.
