Bytesafe: My Personal Pros and Cons Review

Reviewed on 2023/02/27

Pros

ByteSafe's ease of use, as well as its secure encryption capabilities, appealed to me. I also liked how easy it was to manage user access and how many integrations were available. Finally, I found the customer support team to be extremely helpful and responsive.

Cons

The lack of customization options was the least liked feature of ByteSafe. We discovered that we were limited in our ability to customize our system, and we were forced to rely on third-party plugins to obtain the features we desired. Furthermore, the user interface was not very intuitive and required some getting used to.

Easy to setup and instant feeling of ease

Wonderful!

Wonderful!

Pros

The freeze functionality of repositories allows me as a CTO to feel more secure that no packages will accidentally slip through, or be targeted in a package / version attack.

Cons

Would like to get an email when a frozen repository has denied a fetch of a package, to review it and easily add it to allowed packages.

Bytesafe is used in vulnerability scanning. It can be used, but not that easily as expected (see above "cons").

Pros

Email notifications about vulnerabilities. Ease in creation of firewalls with maven.

Cons

Currently maven projects produces a lot of "noise" issues, that have to checked manually.I cannot decide what is actual vulnerability threat and what is not.Also lately I get a lot of "Received fatal alert: handshake_failure" errors just for now reason, when using bytesafe in maven.

Amazing for private packages

Reviewed on 2022/04/28

Pros

The fact that you can create private NPM packages, instead of paying massive fees at NPM or Github is absolutely amazing. And the security aspect of it all just seals the deal.

Cons

There aren't really any documentation on how to use the platform or their product, you just kind of gotta find your own way around it.

Response from Bitfront

Review bytesafe

Reviewed on 2022/11/30

Pros

Really easy to setup hosting of own npm repository and freezing nuget packages.

Cons

It was a little bit tricky understanding the authentication process when wanting to use the npm repository hosted in bytesafe.
