About NodeSource

NodeSource is The Node.js Company™.

We are a technology company that delivers best-in-class products and support addressing the unique needs of running Node.js at scale.

NodeSource was founded in 2014 to be the premier vendor for companies rapidly adopting Node.js, an application runtime that is the fastest growing open source project on Earth. 100% of the Fortune 500 uses Node.js in some capacity and we have been laser focused on their needs from day one. Node.js is a key component of the movement towards building Cloud Native, Mircoservice and API-driven applications for the modern enterprise. The NodeSource team’s institutional knowledge with some of the largest Node.js deployments in the world is the foundation for the powerful suite of tools we are building to address the complex needs inherent in securing, deploying, and running Node.js applications.

NodeSource's flagship product N|Solid delivers unrivaled security, performance and extensibility for Node.js. We extend Node.js to cut off all key attack vectors to prevent malicious attacks to your code. To enhance the security of your applications, NodeSource provides real-time security vulnerability scanning of third-party JavaScript modules running in production. In addition to added security for Node.js, N|Solid provides the most detailed real-time monitoring, enabling increased performance and the fastest time to resolution for application performance bottlenecks.

With Certified Modules, NodeSource aims to bring a quantified level of trust to third-party Node.js modules by certifying them. NodeSource evaluates publicly available packages based on weighted criteria to determine a “trust score” for each package, while also monitoring for security vulnerabilities on an ongoing basis to identify emerging risk. Customers get access to a curated registry of NodeSource-certified Node.js modules.
