Black Duck Software Announces Next Generation OSS Logistics Solution to Manage and Optimize Open Source

Black Duck Software, the leading OSS Logistics solutions provider enabling the adoption and management of open source software (OSS), today announced the release of Black Duck ® Suite™ 7 software that helps companies maximize the benefits of open source while managing the associated operational, legal, and security risks.

Black Duck Suite 7 provides an end-to-end OSS Logistics solution for enterprises using open source at scale, including: choosing the right OSS code; approving it automatically with built-in policies and workflows; scanning the code for origins and licenses; tracking what has been used and where for ease of reuse and maintenance; securing against vulnerabilities; and confidently delivering products and code throughout the supply chain.

“Open source is now a strategic element of all software development, and properly managing its use is essential for increasing the quality, innovation, and time-to-market of software solutions,” said Lou Shipley, President and CEO, Black Duck Software. “Black Duck customers have the competitive advantage of an in-depth knowledge of their source code and can easily adapt to security risks, like the recent Heartbleed vulnerability. Through the Black Duck Suite, enterprises gain greater control and visibility into where and how open source is used throughout the development lifecycle, mitigating risks and fully maximizing the benefits OSS offers.”

New Interface, Reporting, and Security Capabilities

Black Duck offers customers unparalleled insight into their open source code through the industry’s most comprehensive database of open source projects, the Black Duck KnowledgeBase. A range of newly added Black Duck Suite capabilities leverages years of experience analyzing code and assisting customers with OSS logistics solutions:

  • Analysis templates save time and simplify the open source reporting process, codifying best practices in OSS logistics.
  • Security data from the National Vulnerabilities Database (NVD) Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) now includes base scoring, impact scoring, and exploitability scoring, making it easy to assess the impact of security vulnerabilities.
  • New dashboard allows for quick access to basic and advanced search capabilities, including enhanced search supported by Apache Solr for indexing the Black Duck KnowledgeBase and customer data.
  • An updated, graphical user interface incorporates user defined tagging functionality and other features to increase the flexibility of the Black Duck OSS Logistics solution.
  • Additional portfolio views provide an overview of key data such as top components, top licenses, and top programming languages currently in use in a customer’s software data.

Expanded Integration Set

OSS Logistics, delivered through the Black Duck Suite, gives your organization systematic control over the software development process by integrating with existing Integrated Development Environments (IDEs), Build and Continuous Integration (CI) tools, and reporting and repository management systems. In addition to existing integrations with JFrog Artifactory repository manager, IBM’s Rational Team Concert application lifecycle management solution, Maven builds, and the Coverity Connect software testing dashboard, Black Duck Suite 7 includes four new integrations:

  • Jenkins CI: Component discovery and approval is now integrated with the continuous build process
  • SonarQube: Key open source metrics are now available through SonarQube dashboards
  • Eclipse IDE: Developers can now access open source component meta-data directly from within Eclipse
  • Nexus: Component discovery and approvals are now available through Nexus

Black Duck Suite 7 is currently shipping and can be deployed as an on-premise solution or through a software-as-a-service (SaaS).
