npm Enterprise offers a dedicated cloud-deployed registry to enable publication and sharing of public packages without the risk of a shared system.

npm, Inc., the open source JavaScript developer tools provider and operator of the world’s largest software registry, has announced the launch of npm Enterprise – the first managed deployment of the npm registry designed to meet the collaboration, security and compliance needs of large organizations.

npm Enterprise offers a dedicated cloud-deployed registry to enable publication and sharing of public packages without the risk of a shared system. Companies will get their own “companyname.npme.io” website with support for industry-standard SSO authentication to control developer access and other permissions.

In addition, developers will have the choice to publish private packages to their own company registry or make them open source for anyone to access.

The solution integrates with the npm registry, placing the world’s largest collection of open source software at enterprise developers’ fingertips, the company has claimed.

npm Enterprise may help organizations build software faster 

“Approximately 100 per cent of the world’s enterprises acquire over 97 per cent of their JavaScript from the npm Public Registry, making the introduction of npm Enterprise essential for professionalization of JavaScript development,” said Bryan Bogensberger, CEO of npm, Inc.

He added, “With npm Enterprise, we are giving JavaScript developers the npm tools they love while providing the enterprise with enhanced visibility, security and control. The result: happiness throughout organizations everywhere.”

The company explained that in the past enterprise developers were only able to share code with one another via email or an artifact store, which limited their ability to reuse and scale.

With npm Enterprise, it said, companies can benefit from a modern, open source development workflow that allows developers to work, while ensuring security, compliance and access control.

“We believe that npm Enterprise can help organizations build better software more quickly than ever before,” said Isaac Z. Schlueter, Chief Product Officer at npm, Inc.

npm Enterprise provides:

  • Easy code discovery and sharing within your company
  • Secure package deployment
  • Unlimited Orgs and scopes
  • Delegated authentication
  • Access to the same packages available in the public registry
  • Audit reports on potential security vulnerabilities in package dependencies
