WhiteSource is the only all-­in-one licensing, security, and reporting solution for managing open-source components, and the only one that operates in real-­time, by automatically and continuously scanning dozens of open source repositories, and cross-­referencing this data directly against the open source components in your build. It helps you find optimal components, automatically alerts you about known security vulnerabilities, bugs, new versions, patches, and fixes in the components you’re using.


WhiteSource automates the creation and enforcement of your company’s licensing policies and centralizes inter­departmental communications and approval processes. It keeps detailed inventories and due diligence reports. It’s compatible with pretty much all programming languages, build tools and development environments. And possibly the best thing about it – you just plugin and forget about it.


It’s everything that software development teams need to get the maximum out of using open-source components, without the headache, so they can focus on what they should be doing – making beautifully constructed software.

  • Open-Source Security: They offer tools and services to identify and mitigate security vulnerabilities in open source components. This is crucial because many software applications rely on open-source libraries and packages, and vulnerabilities in these components can pose security risks.

  • License Compliance: WhiteSource also helps organizations manage open-source license compliance. It can identify the licenses associated with open-source components and ensure that organizations are in compliance with licensing terms.

  • Continuous Monitoring: WhiteSource provides continuous monitoring of open-source components in software applications. This means that as new vulnerabilities or updates are discovered, organizations are alerted and can take action to secure their software.

  • Integration: The company's solutions can be integrated into the software development lifecycle, including development tools, build systems, and code repositories, to automate the process of identifying and remediating issues related to open-source components.

  • Custom Policies: The solution allows organizations to set custom policies for open source component usage, enabling them to align open source management with their specific requirements and risk tolerance.

  • Reporting and Analysis: WhiteSource offers reporting and analysis features to provide insights into open-source component usage and security. This helps organizations make informed decisions about their software applications.

Open-source components play a critical role in modern software development, but they can introduce security and compliance challenges. WhiteSource's solutions are designed to address these challenges by providing visibility into open-source usage, security vulnerabilities, and license compliance, helping organizations ensure the integrity and security of their software applications.
