Third-party code dominates digital,

drives risk 

Industry Index: Digital Third-party Code

Digital Third-party Vendors

Today’s website and/or mobile app experience is powered by third-party vendors that operate outside the purview of in-house teams. In fact, 50-90% of client-side executing code on websites is from third parties—the more dynamic the site, the more third-party code that is used. This code is often used by bad actors to steal visitor information (personal, financial, device, etc.), redirect visitors to other competitor sites, takeover devices, and much more. As evidenced by continued breaches, you can’t manage and protect something that you can’t see.
