360° Visibility on Open Source Risk

Create an accurate SBOM for any

source code, including

AI-generated code

CI/CD pipelines, CLIs, IDE
integrations, Webhooks.

With our API-first, developer-centric architecture, we integrate with any existing software.


SCA Automation

100%  Open Source SCA

The entire SCANOSS Platform is Open Source and we provide a number of client implementations.

The First SBOM Generator App

The SCANOSS Workbench is a lightweight app that runs on any Windows/MacOS/Linux computer and requires zero server infrastructure. It packs lots of advanced features in a modern and elegant interface. Since it is entirely Open Source,

it puts an end to security concerns and vendor lock-in mechanisms.

CLIs and Webhooks for Automation
and CI/CD integration

Our architecture is API-centric, built for developers. The “shift left” paradigm brings license compliance validation to the earliest possible stage in a development process. We can go as left as intercepting a CTRL-V in your IDE before undeclared Open Source is pasted.

The first Open Source Inventorying engine built specifically
for modern development and DevOps teams of all sizes.

Precise & always ‘live’ SBOM

Instant identification of entire components, files or even small snippets of Open Source code. Developer centric SBOM generation on a live codebase, no more waiting for a snapshot at the end.

Your private data is protected

SCANOSS is 100% Open Source, making the process of extracting fingerprints totally open. Only code fingerprints are sent to our servers for comparison. File names are replaced with numeric identifiers to protect your information.

Declared vs. undeclared code:
a huge blind spot.

Most businesses rely on declared open source components to manage risk. This business practice results in a huge blind spot–the undeclared open source components that cannot easily be identified but present the same risks. Undeclared components include, for example:

• Hidden plagiarized code
• Forgotten “old” code
• C/C++ and similar projects
• Partial file/component code

• AI-Generated Code

Solution for Enterprise
Risk mitigation that fits an enterprise-sized
organization, pursuing scalability
Understanding the general “health and welfare” of Open Source in order to limit
technical risk has become a new frontier, find out how.

Why you should mitigate Open Source risks beyond security

As companies with mature Open Source management practices have largely been able to gain adequate control and visibility of license/IP risks as well as security risks, they have been facing many technical risks:


  • Use of OSS with poor project health: excessively high numbers of issues/bugs, poor project management, missing documentation, lack of responsiveness to questions or issues

  • Poor fitness for purpose: OSS with poor performance, scalability, and stability

  • Use of out-of-date forks of a mainstream project

  • Lack of code stability or API backward compatibility that makes upgrading to address issues difficult


Technical risk, often overseen, can elevate your competitive edge by increasing efficiency in your software development lifecycle. Risk mitigation should identify all types of risk, both declared and undeclared, that fits an enterprise organizational structure.
