Canvass for Compliance - License Analyzer
Our Compliance tool identifies OSS license and copyright information embedded in source code. Improper usage of OSS can threaten a Company’s IP. In addition, searching for and declaring OSS licenses and copyright statements are an integral part of the due diligence process prior to a software release or acquisition of a software company. The tool leverages a library of 400+ commonly used license text, scans source code for known licenses. License Analyzer also scans code for copyright info, and author information. The tool mimics human reviewers and drastically reduces the burden of manual source code review. Most large enterprises have large teams of people performing manual review, and Canvass for Compliance aims to assist them creating efficiencies and reducing costs.
