Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – January 5, 2023) – Cybeats Technologies Corp. (CSE: CYBT) (“Cybeats” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an overview of its SBOM Studio product, a solution to the pressing issue of cybersecurity vulnerabilities across the global software supply chain. With the increasing frequency of high-profile cyber attacks and new regulations around the world, it is more important than ever for organizations to prioritize the protection of themselves and their customers. SBOM Studio provides a comprehensive solution to this problem, enabling companies to increase efficiency, reduce costs, and improve compliance while improving visibility and security of the software supply chain.
“Our recent industry and customer recognition is a testament to the industry-leading capabilities of our SBOM Studio platform and demonstrates our ability to win over some of the largest enterprises in the world,” said Yoav Raiter, CEO, Cybeats. “SBOM adoption is accelerating around the world, in-part by advancing government regulations, and our SBOM Studio is leading the way forward as organizations increasingly look to implement SBOMs to protect their software supply chains.”
“SBOM Studio is defining and pioneering the future of autonomous SBOM management, helping organizations proactively improve visibility and security across the software supply chain,” said Dmitry Raidman, CTO, Cybeats. “SBOM Studio was purposefully designed to empower organizations of all sizes and industries to easily and efficiently implement SBOMs, accelerate vulnerability management, and reduce the cost of protecting their software supply chain.”
To remain competitive in today’s market, organizations rely on previously developed software or proprietary third party software components known as “open source software” (OSS) to meet the demands of frequent software releases in a cost-effective and timely manner. In fact, 99% all software today contains open source components.1
The use of OSS carries inherent risks with studies showing that 75% of open source software contains vulnerabilities that pose cybersecurity threats2. With the widespread use of OSS in modern software development, it is crucial for organizations to have a system in place to manage and mitigate these risks.
The threat of cyberattacks that exploit vulnerabilities in open source software (OSS) is increasing rapidly, with a growth rate of 700% per year3. Many organizations may not be aware that they are using OSS, making it crucial for them to take steps to protect themselves against these threats. The log4j4 and SolarWinds5 events serve as examples of the potential damage caused by attacks that exploit OSS vulnerabilities, affecting 18,000 customers including government agencies and critical infrastructure providers. To mitigate OSS risks, creating and continuously monitoring a Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) is becoming a must.
Software Bill of Materials (SBOMs) are lists of the ingredients and their versions that make up a particular piece of software, similar to the nutritional facts or ingredient list found on food labels such as for dairy, cookies or juice. SBOMs provide important information about software, including any open source components, which can help companies and governments determine if the software is safe to use. SBOMs are used across a variety of industries and are becoming required by government regulators, such as the FDA’s recent mandate requiring SBOMs for medical device submissions. Many companies are already generating SBOMs as part of their software development process, following recent industry standards for SBOM generation. However, implementing SBOM practices can be challenging due to the scale of the change and the manual work involved. As organizations seek to improve the security and reliability of their software in the face of evolving threats and regulatory requirements, the adoption of SBOMs is becoming increasingly important. By using SBOMs, companies can better manage their software supply chain risks and improve the overall quality of their software.

Cybeats’ SBOM Studio is a comprehensive solution designed to manage and distribute software bill of materials (SBOMs) in a single platform. It provides organizations with a centralized view of cybersecurity vulnerabilities, enabling them to improve the visibility and security of their software supply chain. SBOM Studio is useful for organizations of all sizes and industries, as it helps them to improve their vulnerability management processes, reduce the cost of protection, and enhance compliance.
SBOM Studio is also agnostic to SBOM generation tools, meaning it can work with any tool to validate and correct imported SBOMs, improving the accuracy of SBOMs. In addition, it simplifies the implementation process, speeds up the fixing of vulnerabilities, and automates SBOM management, ultimately improving the return on investment of SBOM adoption in an organization.
After generating software bill of materials (SBOMs) using any SBOM generation tool, clients who upload their SBOMs to Cybeats’ SBOM Studio can gain valuable insights into their software supply chain with the following features:
Automated SBOM Management
- During the import of SBOMs, SBOM Studio will validate the SBOM to ensure correct formatting according to the specification of the SBOM standards
- SBOMs that are not accurately formatted will either be auto-corrected for recoverable errors or rejected with meaningful information describing the root cause of the misalignment
- SBOM Studio enriches SBOMs as part of the import process, populating them with key information and details about the software supply chain intelligence data
Accelerated Vulnerability Management
- Continuous process of monitoring SBOMs, autonomous scanning for new vulnerabilities. SBOMs are living and breathing in SBOM Studio
- Categorizes and filters vulnerabilities by level of criticality to inform decision making
- Search for and identify specific SBOMs rapidly, and confidently and securely identify compromised components across the organization
Improved Workflow for Security Operations
- Prompts cyber teams with the recommended actions to optimally fix vulnerabilities and reduce cyber risk
- Display and categorizes vulnerabilities by level of criticality for prioritization of security workflow
- In leveraging a robust data lake, accurately determine how vulnerabilities affect the organization’s security posture
- Native plug-ins and other integrations that allow for seamless workflow
- User-intuitive interface is easy to learn and understand
SBOM Sharing and Exchange Capabilities
- Securely share SBOMs with regulatory agencies, internal and external customers
- Share product SBOMs, while keeping the IP protected
- Ability to redact and hide specific parts of an SBOM before they are shared externally
- SBOM language agnostic with acceptance of all SBOMs, and easy conversion between SBOM languages
Data-Driven Business Decisions
- Report generation and visually appealing dashboard, for use by leadership, to bridge gaps between vulnerability status and the budgeting, forecasting, risk-mitigation, prioritization strategies
- Offers ‘Governor View’ vantage that allows enhanced visibility into all the layers and subsidiaries of the core business, giving development, cyber teams and leadership more information to better prioritize and evaluate the risks and associated costs across the organization
Regulatory Compliance and Licence Infringement
- Satisfy Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) requirements by showing best practices and good cyber hygiene by having an SBOM for all software, and for any 3rd-party products used by the enterprise

With the widespread proliferation and adoption of SBOM following the Whitehouse Executive Order in May of 2021, which announced the new SBOM standard to be implemented in the United States6, policymakers are recognizing the importance of SBOM standards. Cybeats SBOM management solution provides proactive compliance with anticipated Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) requirements, demonstrating best practices by having an SBOM for all software, and for any 3rd-party products used by enterprises. From the US Executive Order to the recent EU Cyber Resilience Act7, the value and imperative to use SBOMs around the world has been further cemented. Cybeats recently applauded the $1.7 Trillion Omnibus Appropriations Bill which would require medical device manufacturers to submit a Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) to the FDA that includes all standard, open source, and critical software components used by the devices.
