Black Duck Aims to Help Improve Open Source Code Visibility

As open source usage grows throughout all sectors of IT, it is becoming increasingly important for organizations to have some visibility into what they are using. Black Duck Software has multiple tools in its portfolio, including Hub for finding and fixing open source vulnerabilities, Protex for identifying open source code usage, and Code Center for understanding compliance.

Linux vendor Red Hat recently announced a partnership with Black Duck in a bid to help improve container security.

“The challenge with containers is you really don’t know where all the contents come from,” Bill Ledingham, CTO of Black Duck told Datamation. “That’s where we’re providing some added value so organization can understand what’s in there, so no matter where all the components come from. We can identify what’s in there and tell you if there are vulnerabilities.”
