Protecode, a leading provider of open source software license management solutions, today launched its newest solution offering, Protecode Compact, a stand-alone, single-seat management solution for managing open source licenses and other code attributes.
Protecode Compact combines all of the innovative features of Protecode’s flagship solution, Protecode System 4, in a small, simple to download, one-click installation on Windows platforms.
With Protecode Compact, small organizations or departments within larger organizations can scan their code and generate a software bill of materials that lists all open source and other third party software in their portfolio. Protecode Compact reports on security vulnerabilities, encryption content, license compatibilities and license obligations.
“Open source software allows our team to deliver feature-rich quality solutions quickly, but we need to ensure that we use third party software responsibly and manage its obligations. Protecode Compact, with its deep-scanning capability and unlimited-analysis commercial model, allows us to make code attributes management part of our product life cycle. We are very impressed with the existing capabilities and have fully integrated the use of Protecode Compact in our product release cycles,” said Paulo Marques, CTO, FeedZai, a software company specializing in real-time fraud detection.
“We are aware of the demand from small technology organizations that require the same accuracy, completeness and usability as larger enterprises, but do not need the multi-user, multi‑site scalability of multi-site corporations,” said Normand Glaude, COO, Protecode. “Protecode Compact ensures that small organizations or individual departments can gain access to state-of-the-art scanning and license management solutions within their software development and delivery process.”
Protecode compact is offered under an annual license with no restrictions on volume of software that is scanned. Protecode’s acclaimed “all-in” business model also applies to Protecode Compact. The license fee includes installation, setup, training, support and all updates/upgrades throughout the license period.
Protecode is hosting a live, online product demonstration of Protecode Compact on September 25th, 2013 at 9am EDT and 2pm EDT.
