Legacy tools destroy developer workflow by slowing down or freezing processes and requiring manual audits. By having an issue resolution workflow that can be integrated with CI/CD, you don’t have to stop developers from working or do one-off scans. It allows everything to be continuous and compatible with DevOps best practices such as Agile Method, CI/CD, automation, and security.
With each open source project, security and compliance need to be vetted. Security is an obvious concern, but open source license compliance is also essential because a lack of compliance to otherwise “free” open source tools can have a revenue impact when proof is required for enterprise sales, M&A, IPO, or distribution on application platforms.
DevOps and Open Source 101: The DevOps Role in Modernizing Open Source Best Practices discusses:
Up to 90% of any piece of software is from open source, creating countless dependencies and areas of risk to manage. FOSSA is the most reliable automated policy engine for security management, license compliance, and code quality across the open source stack.
With FOSSA, engineering, security, and legal teams all get complete and continuous risk mitigation for the entire software supply chain, integrated into each of their existing workflows.
FOSSA enables organizations like Slack, Snapchat, Okta, Puppet, Epic Games, and UiPath to manage their open source at scale and drive continuous innovation.
