Open source software is a hot topic in the industry – shortening the time to market for software suppliers and lowering the cost for buyers. BUT, it needs to be managed. Suppliers need to stay in compliance with license obligations. They should also be able to produce a Bill of Materials when requested by customers, partners or as part of due diligence activities.
Everyone who’s using open source software needs to track vulnerabilities and react quickly, before they become a threat. This requires detailed code analysis and – again – knowledge of what is being used.
Over the last year, you have seen many articles about this topic on our Software Monetization blog. The rapidly growing number of security and legal issues around open source software prompted us to deliver a new and more focused resource. Our Software Composition Analysis team proudly introduces their own blog:
