Some people still think that open-source software security is inferior. However, security experts feel that it sets the bar for what computing security should be. "Open source is inherently more secure for the reason that patches, fixes and updates come immediately, and sometimes from competing sources."

Use Static Analysis to Secure Open Source

Open Source lends itself to a new way of certifying software: Continuous Assurance. In this approach, automated tools and processes ensure that, as code changes, it continually satisfies compliance, quality, and security requirements. "Continuous Assurance integrates directly into development and benefits from the always-up-to-date nature of cloud services, making it a perfect match for Open Source."
