Obtaining approvals for use behind corporate firewall


#1

Any insights on obtaining an approval so that i might use behind my employer’s firewall?
The “hack-able” editor puts one strike against me.

It’s an editor that you can hack, not anyone outside.

Just have your IT department look at it. It’s free and open-source, and the only things that go on with it aside from basic editor functions are things that you authorize via installing packages and writing scripts. Atom is incapable of being an incoming attack vector unless you install a package that sets up a weird connection with the outside world (and all packages are open-source, so you can personally look at each and every bit of code if you need to).
