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.
Black Duck On-Demand audits reveal that most organizations track less than half the open source they use. Open source enters your code through many channels, making it nearly impossible for development teams to track effectively.

One out of every 16 open source download requests is for a component with a known vulnerability. To reduce these risks, security pros are turning to SCA tools."

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.
Synopsys tracks over 2,750 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.
