In the realm of Software Composition Analysis (SCA), the significance of robust tools cannot be overstated. To further elevate your experience with Vigiles, our comprehensive SCA tool, we’re thrilled to introduce the Vigiles Command-Line Interface (CLI) – a game-changing addition designed to revolutionize your interaction with Vigiles APIs. This new CLI seamlessly integrates with third-party SBOM generation tools, such as syft, paving the way for a smoother and more efficient workflow.

 

Seamless Integration for Enhanced Workflow

What sets Vigiles-CLI apart is its effortless integration with third-party Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) generation tools like syft for not only faster and more accurate SBOM generation, but also a substantial reduction in false positives. This integration aims to streamline your journey from Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) discovery to remediation and documentation, with a focus on accuracy and efficiency in the security management process so you spend less time chasing false positives and analyzing vulnerability data.

 

The 3 Key Features and Benefits of Vigiles-CLI

  1. Efficient SBOM Generation: Vigiles-CLI streamlines the process of generating SBOMs by integrating with popular tools like “syft,” enhancing efficiency in your security management.
  2. Reduced False Positives: Experience a significant reduction in false positives, ensuring that your CVE discovery process is not only swift but also highly reliable.
  3. Seamless Workflow: The CLI facilitates a seamless workflow, making it easier for users to navigate through the complexities of embedded Linux device SBOMs and other ecosystem SBOMs.
