Open Source Security and Risk Analysis (OSSRA) 2020 Report
It’s safe to say that if you’re creating software today, you’re using open source components. Open source is a great foundation for modern software development. But if not managed properly, open source can expose you to numerous risks—including licensing and security risk.
The 2020 Open Source Security and Risk Analysis (OSSRA) report is the resource you need to learn why it’s so important to identify and manage your open source code. Based on the anonymised data of more than 1,250 audited codebases, the report provides the latest insights and eye-opening statistics about open source security, license compliance, and code quality risk in commercial software.
To no one’s surprise, nearly every one of the codebases examined included open source. In fact, 70% of the audited code was open source.
But the biggest takeaway from this year’s OSSRA report is that organisations need to do a much better job of managing and maintaining their open source components.
