vs Snyk

Elixir Support

Runtime Exploit Guard (RASP)
Runtime Asset Management
Bot Defense
Hex Native Install is better than Snyk for defending Elixir applications. As a product, Snyk is only able to assist with vulnerable Elixir dependencies, and cannot manage open source licenses associated with these dependencies. While Snyk has a SAST offering, it does not support Elixir.

Today, has full support for Elixir across all features.

Dependency Security (SCA) - If a project dependency is vulnerable, can detect this and alert you before deployment.

Static Code Analysis (SAST) - This builds on top of Sobelow, the best SAST scanner available for Elixir. provides you with metrics and reports so you can be certain security scans are running and issues are being fixed.

Open Source License Compliance - Does your company ban specific open source licenses? When was the last time you checked your Elixir projects for violations? automates this work.

Developer Security Guidance - Sobelow just alerted your developer to a critical security problem, but the project does not explain how to verify and fix the issue. provides detailed instructions on how to do this, educating your team and saving them time.

Runtime Exploit Guard (RASP) - developed the first RASP product for Elixir, with the ability to detect and block remote code execution (RCE) attacks.

Runtime Asset Management - When a new exploit becomes public, the top priority of every security team suddenly becomes tracking down all the locations where the relevant apps are running and checking library versions. is able to get this data at runtime, for the most accurate asset inventory possible.

Bot Defense - Bot Defense runs as part of your Elixir code. This means it cannot be bypassed (like Cloudflare) and does not require any 3rd party JS, so it will work on web applications and API endpoints.

Hex Native Install - You do not have to install Docker, Java, npm, or any additional software to use with your Elixir application. Just as Python has pip and Ruby has RubyGems, Elixir has Hex. Download the open source agent and configure the API key to get started -
