Software composition analysis (SCA) tools help organizations address security, license compliance, and code quality challenges that come with the use of open source software (OSS). SCA solutions inventory and analyze OSS dependencies, providing organizations actionable insight to reduce open source risk.

Of course, there are multiple SCA solutions on the market today, each with different capabilities. Technology review site IT Central Station recently published a report, “The Elements of an Effective SCA Solution,” to help prospective SCA users determine which features matter most.

The report, which is based on a survey of FOSSA users, explores mission-critical SCA capabilities, such as:

  • Integration with CI/CD workflows
  • An accurate and comprehensive inventory of dependencies
  • Vulnerability scanners
  • Collaboration and governance capabilities

FOSSA is a leading application security and compliance platform that specializes in helping engineering teams deliver trusted software.

FOSSA enables companies to prioritize real vulnerabilities in their open source software with comprehensive SCA (software composition analysis) capabilities, while also making it possible for organizations to automate compliance reporting and SBOM (software bill of materials) lifecycle management to meet customer and regulatory requirements.

Founded in 2015, FOSSA is trusted by thousands of global organizations, has been downloaded nearly two million times, and has conducted nearly 100 million scans of open-source software.
