Software Composition Analysis: How to Choose the Right Solution

Open source components have become an integral part of today’s software development processes. Open source enables companies to build better products, faster. After all why should you re-invent the wheel when you can just download it from GitHub? However, it’s still your responsibility to ensure that all of the components in your products are secure and compliant with your company’s policies.

The problem is that verifying that each and every open source component used is secure and complies with your company’s policies has become increasingly complex. That’s because information about open source components is scattered across hundreds of sources with varied levels of credibility, and most databases are not easily searchable.

So how can you get the control you need over your open source usage? Through automation! And this is where Software Composition Analysis (SCA) tools come in.
