Secure development for developers and teams
Snyk Security finds and fixes security vulnerabilities in your projects early in the development lifecycle to help you ace your security reviews and avoid a costly fix later down the line. If you’re an individual developer, open-source contributor, or maintainer at a large organization, Snyk helps you ship secure code, faster.
Snyk scans for issue types around:
- Open Source Security - security vulnerabilities in both the direct and in-direct (transitive) open-source dependencies you are pulling into the project.
- Code Security - security vulnerabilities identified in your own code.
- Infrastructure as Code (IaC) Security - configuration issues in your IaC templates (Terraform, Kubernetes, CloudFormation, and Azure Resource Manager)
- Code Quality - code quality issues in your own code
Secure your code
Comprehensive security for open-source dependencies—all in one plugin. Whether you’re looking for a Java vulnerability scanner or an open-source security scanner.

How to install:
Navigate to the Marketplace from within your running Eclipse instance. Search for Snyk and click Install. If in doubt, we've provided detailed information on how to install the plugin and what happens after install in our documentation.
Q: What do I need to use Snyk Security?
A: Snyk plugins require an API token to connect Snyk’s security database with your IDE. If you haven’t already, sign up for a free Snyk account to get your token.
Q: How do I install Snyk Security?
A: Open the Settings/Preferences, search for ‘Snyk Security’ in the Marketplace tab and click Install. Once your IDE has reloaded you can authenticate with Snyk, from there your first security scan will automatically kick off.
Q: Why should I test in my IDE?
A: Testing your code within your IDE ensures you are identifying issues early on in development as opposed to finding them later in the process, when it is much more time intensive and costly to fix.
“If you aren't addressing problems during the developer workflow and you're finding them and dealing with them in QA, it will take you 10 times longer to fix. That’s where Snyk comes in.” Ryan Kimber, Founder and CEO, FormHero
Q: Is Snyk Security free?
A: Yes! Anyone can use Snyk Security with a free Snyk account. First, install, and then authenticate with Snyk.
If you already have a Snyk account, you can connect your Snyk JetBrains plugin back to Snyk in a few clicks. If you’re new to Snyk, you can signup for a free account and follow the install instructions to authenticate from there.
Q: Are there limitations on the number of tests I can run?
A: Free Snyk accounts give you 200 Open Source tests, 300 IaC tests, and 100 Code tests monthly. If you’re working on an open source project OR have any paid plan with Snyk, there are no limitations on tests.
Q: Can I run Snyk Security locally?
A: The plugin operates using the Snyk CLI. Once Snyk Security is installed, it will automatically download the latest version of the Snyk CLI and use it to run scans.
Q: Does Snyk Security work in multiple IDEs?
A: Yes, Snyk also has plugins for all JetBrains IDEs, VS Code, and Visual Studio. You can see all Snyk IDE extensions available here.
