Open source is a critical part of your software. In the average modern software product, over 80% of the source code shipped is derived from open source. Each component can have cascading legal, security or quality implications for your customers, making it one of the most important things to manage correctly.

FOSSA helps you manage your open source components. We plug directly into your development workflow to help your team automatically track, manage and remediate issues with the open source you use to:

  1. Stay compliant with software licenses and generate required attribution documents
  2. Enforce usage and licensing policies throughout your CI/CD workflow
  3. Monitor and remediate security vulnerabilities
  4. Flag code quality issues and outdated components proactively

By enabling open source, we help development teams increase development velocity and decrease risk. In this guide, you'll find everything you need to set up FOSSA for your team.
