BOSTON, May 19, 2022 — Tidelift, a leading provider of solutions for improving the health and security of the open source behind modern applications, today announced it has been named a 2022 Cool Vendor in Software Engineering by Gartner.
Tidelift was recognized for its unique approach to ensuring the open source software organizations use to build applications is secure and well maintained, while also saving developers from being consumed by security, maintenance, and licensing issues they may not have the time or expertise to address.
According to the report, “Software engineers struggle to navigate complex code environments and to improve security of the systems they build while remaining productive. These Cool Vendors offer innovative solutions that help software engineering leaders boost developer productivity and mitigate security risks.”
“As software security threats like Log4Shell and SolarWinds proliferate, Tidelift and our partnered open source maintainers are uniquely positioned to ensure organizations building applications with open source are safer and more secure,” said Donald Fischer, co-founder and CEO of Tidelift. “We see being named a Cool Vendor by Gartner as a significant point of validation, and underscores the growing demand for new and innovative ways to effectively manage the open source behind modern applications.”
