Top 3 Mistakes Organizations Make When Implementing Software Composition Analysis (SCA)



The ubiquitous use of open-source software (OSS) in custom-built applications is driving up the intellectual property and security risks for corporate legal teams and application owners.

Companies utilizing traditional Software Composition Analysis (SCA) approaches are experiencing significant challenges including slow rollouts, overly complex deployments, and lack of actionable insights that hinder them from effectively controlling OSS risks across their most business-critical software applications.

Instead, several federal agencies, top-tier advisories, and financial firms now use CAST Highlight for its rapid deployment, simpler approach, and actionable insights that incorporates the business context of software applications for more informed decision-making.

Join industry experts from CGI, GrowthCurve Capital, and CAST on Wednesday, August 10th at 11am ET as they discuss:

  • The top 3 mistakes to avoid when adopting SCA
  • Best practices for controlling the legal, security, and operational risks of using OSS
  • How to rollout an open source 'control tower' across hundreds of applications in less than a month

All at a fraction of the cost of traditional approaches to SCA.
