Block problematic open source components when a developer adds it to your repository or build by enforcing security, license, and quality policies automatically.
Integrate WhiteSource with your repositories, build tools and CI servers to automate your entire open source management process.
Produce detailed, accurate and up-to-date reports on all different aspects of your open source usage, within minutes.
