The Rise of Open Source –

How to Efficiently Manage Security and License Risks


Open source is everywhere. On average, an application uses more than 200 open source components. While it helps developers implement features faster, companies need to manage the potential risks of these third-party components by continuously identifying, measuring and qualifying them.

In this recording, you learn about the 3 core areas of risk when using Open Source:

  1. Identify & manage third-party vulnerabilities – Learn how to effectively manage Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures (CVEs) found in your software
  2. Catalogue and manage licenses associated with your open source components – Identify licenses that can expose you to legal risk
  3. Open source obsolescence – Reduce license and vulnerability risk by detecting old/obsolete components that need upgrading

Join us to learn about these risk areas and how you can avoid them by utilizing cutting-edge technology. CAST Highlight allows your IT team to take control of your third-party components and open source software to mitigate license and security risks automatically, easily, and quickly
