Companies are under pressure to develop new applications rapidly and open source helps them do that. Without an automated process for cataloguing Open Source usage, organisations often rely on manual tracking, which is error prone and difficult to scale. As the audits show, they quickly lose visibility and control of their open source and the capability to effectively manage it during the software development cycle.
There are three types of risk: security risks, when the OSS component contains a known vulnerability, opening doors for large-scale breaches; legal risks, when the OSS license obligations are not met; and operational risks, when the OSS community is not actively managing and improving the component.
Open Source Software Analysis – identify and fix vulnerabilities
Simply reacting to risks as they materialise is not the answer. Companies need to take proactive measures to protect their applications from security breaches, legal noncompliance, and operational uncertainties. To address this need, Capgemini, Sogeti and Black Duck® Software have come together to provide their customers with the visibility and control needed to find and remediate open source vulnerabilities and risks. Our comprehensive Open Source Software Analysis service is the solution to the growing challenge of effective OSS management and risk mitigation.
