Why you should mitigate open source risks beyond security

As Open Source usage grew to encompass the majority of software creation, risk mitigation became a necessity to automate the Open Source management process.

While you’ve landed in a stage where you’re capable of identifying the security vulnerabilities of all declared code and components, there are still risks left uncovered. For example:

  • Vulnerabilities in undeclared open source
  • License obligations in partial files
  • Technical health of components
  • Export compliance obligations

Declared vs. undeclared code: a huge blind spot

On top of the potential risks besides security, the status quo relies 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

Go beyond security risk mitigation

Catch security vulnerabilities while coding
