Our customers identify and track open source and other externally-written software in their development projects in order to manage and secure their software against risks resulting from intellectual property infringement and security vulnerabilities. Palamida analysts have conducted thousands of audits projects (billions of lines of code) ranging from quick one-day inspections to comprehensive due diligence projects to multi-product internal baselines.  In all cases, our analysts use Palamida Enterprise Edition software as well as extensive domain expertise to produce a highly readable and actionable report. Reports can be tailored to specific requirements and can include open source and commercial content, analysis of subcomponents, multi-media content, and cut-and-paste source code.
