FlexNet Code Insight enables development, security and legal teams to manage Open Source Software (OSS) and third party components. Create a formal OSS strategy and enforce policies to ensure OSS license compliance and reduce vulnerability risk. Users can make sure that their systems use the latest information through the automatic updating of versions, licenses, rules, service adds components and vulnerabilities weekly, or sometimes daily. The specific OSS or commercial components that are in use within the user’s collection of products can be easily found with the help of over 12.9 million open source components.
Users are alerted when a new application security vulnerability is reported for components in use, and with the request and authorisation workflows, developers are able to seek and receive permission before new code goes into the code base, plus the solution provides access to the history of the request and usage details. For compliance with IP and security policies, users can identify, track and approve third-party content elements used within their code. Furthermore, users can accurately analyse faster via the use of over 2.5 million automated detection rules.
