Black Duck Software

Black Duck Software helps the world’s most innovative companies streamline, safeguard, and manage their use of open source software.

Open source software is revolutionizing technology by enabling companies to speed development, reduce costs, increase innovation, and improve efficiency.

Open Source Application Security

Managing application security is essential in today’s complex IT environment. According to Forrester Research, most third-party code, including open source, are not tested for security vulnerabilities with the same level of rigor as in-house developed code. At the same time, IDC estimates that 30 percent of deployed software in the Global 2000 is open source. To ensure the security of new applications, products and services, open source needs to be properly managed and controlled.

To truly protect your software applications from potential vulnerabilities, you need an accurate understanding of:

  • What open source components are in your current products and applications?
  • Are there any outstanding, known security vulnerabilities?
  • Have your open source components been validated and are their versions up-to-date before they are deployed?

Key Features

  • Identify and inventory open source software used in applications
  • Map to known vulnerabilities and license requirements
  • Continuously monitor and alert for new open source vulnerabilities
  • Assist teams in remediation with orchestration and policy enforcement
