Not all open source management solutions are created equal. Black Duck by Synopsys solutions are built on a foundation of industry-leading technologies that ensure you get the most complete and accurate view of open source risks in your software.
Multifactor open source detection
Most solutions rely solely on dependency information obtained from package managers such as Maven and Gradle, making them ineffective for languages like C and C++, and leaving you blind to open source that package managers miss. Only Black Duck provides multifactor open source detection that gives you both fast results and the ability to detect undeclared, modified, or even partial open source components.
Automation and integration are essential for modern agile software development and DevOps. With Black Duck you can manage open source risks at every stage of the application life cycle. Define open source use policies once, and automatically alert and enforce them in IDEs, build/CI tools, and container deployment platforms.
Many solutions only provide CVE information from the National Vulnerability Database (NVD). But not all vulnerabilities are documented there, and they may take weeks to appear and have limited information. Black Duck’s independently researched Enhanced Vulnerability Data helps you win the race against hackers, providing same-day vulnerability notifications and risk and remediation guidance not available in the NVD.
For over a decade, the Black Duck KnowledgeBase has been the definitive source for open source component information, using continuous automated data collection from over 14,000 global sites and forges, curated and validated by Black Duck’s team of experts.
