White Source is the only all-in-one licensing, security, and reporting solution for managing open source components, and the only one that operates in real-time, by automatically and continuously scanning dozens of open source repositories, and cross-referencing this data directly against the open source components in your build. It helps you ﬁnd optimal components, automatically alerts you about known security vulnerabilities, bugs, new versions, patches, and ﬁxes in the components you’re using. It automates the creation and enforcement of your company’s licensing policies, and centralizes inter-departmental communications and approval processes. It keeps detailed inventories and due diligence reports. It’s compatible with pretty much all programming languages, build tools and development environments. And possibly the best thing about it – you just plugin and forget about it – unless there’s a problem.
