Since 2004, Black Duck’s mission has been to help organizations get the most out of open source by giving them solutions that help them manage and, if possible, avoid the security, license, and quality risks that can come with it. We believe that when teams take control of these risks, open source thrives. Black Duck Hub gives these organizations (open source consumers) a sophisticated and automated solution that allows them to secure virtually any application or container codebase, across the entire development lifecycle, at any scale.
CoPilot complements Hub by giving open source producers a solution that helps them produce better quality components and communicate that to open source consumers — and that benefits everybody. However, CoPilot is not intended to be the full open source management solution that Hub is, and its functionality is a subset of Hub. The table below provides more detail on the specific feature differences between the two.
