Open Source Security & Compliance

Open source is everywhere. If you’re not tracking it, you can’t manage the risks.

Open source is the foundation for the applications you build. If you don’t have an effective way to track and manage it, you’re exposing yourself to the security, license compliance, and code quality risks that come with the use of open source.

Black Duck by Synopsys solutions give you the visibility and control you need to maximize the benefits of open source while minimizing the risks.

Open source vulnerabilities: A rich target for hackers

Because open source is so widely used, it’s a prime target for hackers. As Heartbleed and the Equifax breach show, a single open source vulnerability can give hackers the keys to thousands of applications.

To win the race against open source hackers and protect your sensitive data and customer trust, you need to know what’s in your code before they do.

 

Open source license compliance: Don’t put your IP at risk

Synopsys tracks over 2,500 open source licenses, and while many are permissive, others, like the GNU General Public License (GPL), are reciprocal, imposing restrictions on the use or transfer of license terms for the software your team writes. Tracking and managing open source with Black Duck helps you avoid license violations that can result in costly litigation or compromise your valuable intellectual property.
