Why Read This Report

You can use software composition analysis (SCA) to eliminate vulnerable components, reduce license risk, and apply consistent policies during the software development life cycle (SDLC). But to access these benefits, you'll first have to select from a diverse set of vendors — vendors that vary by size, functionality, geography, and vertical market focus. Security professionals should use Forrester's Now Tech report to understand the value they can expect from an SCA provider and select vendors based on size and functionality.
