SCA: Necessary, Mandated and Now Accurate & Affordable

Software Composition Analysis tools have long been used to manage OSS security and license compliance. And generating and maintaining an accurate software bill of materials is not a new requirement. It’s well understood that you can't manage (and comply with) what you can't see. 

But supply chain attacks and security breaches like Log4J have changed the game. Accurate SBOMs are now increasingly being mandated within industry and governments alike.

Not surprisingly, tools vendors want to capitalize on the publicity by claiming SBOM capabilities. But not all SBOMs are created equal, leaving many companies at risk of unidentified third party code.

SCANOSS delivers the precise capabilities needed to produce and maintain an accurate SBOM. And to enrich any SBOM with the intelligence needed to manage your third party code effectively. At a fraction of the cost.

The SCANOSS Alternative

SCANOSS is the first affordable OSS Inventory (SBOM) & Intelligence platform that was built for modern DevSecOps and supply chains, delivering 360° visibility and control over OSS security, license and export risks.

It delivers the precise capabilities you need, including:

  • Ingest and parse package manifest and other meta data, if available

  • Detect unmodified components and files, including binaries

  • Detect third party code in AI-generated code

  • Detect modified or plagiarized files and code fragments (snippets)

  • Integration with FOSSology, ScanCode, OSS Review Toolkit, FOSSLight

  • SBOMs in standard formats like SPDX, CycloneDX and CSV

  • Automation to ensure that SBOMs are kept up-to-date as code is developed

  • Decorate any SBOM with security (e.g. CVEs), license and export compliance data

The full SCANOSS platform is available as FOSS (Free and Open Source), so companies of all sizes can now create a complete and accurate SBOM at a small fraction of the cost. Optionally it can be installed on-premises using commodity hardware subject to a commercial agreement.
