Black Duck Software, Inc. Key Developments

Black Duck Software Names Bob Canaway as Chief Marketing Officer

Black Duck Software announced the appointment of experienced marketing executive Bob Canaway as its Chief Marketing Officer. Canaway, who has more than 15 years of enterprise software marketing leadership, joins Black Duck as the company sharpens its focus on open source security with solutions that scan application code to identify all open source, map any known open source vulnerabilities and dynamically monitor all of the scanned open source code. Most recently, Canaway was Chief Marketing Officer at Nuxeo.

Black Duck Software Announces the Availability of Black Duck Hub 2.2

Black Duck Software announced the availability of Black Duck Hub 2.2, including new, extended open source security vulnerability intelligence, providing vulnerability data beyond what is offered in the National Vulnerability Database (NVD). VulnDB, a new vulnerability data source embedded in Black Duck’s Hub 2.2 product release, alerts customers to newly reported vulnerabilities on average three weeks sooner than NVD in 2015. Reporting on 38% more vulnerabilities than NVD, VulnDB provides more comprehensive detail on each vulnerability, recommends use of the open source software version that is free of known vulnerabilities and advises on remediation steps. Customers can protect their applications from attackers by proactively identifying where known vulnerabilities exist in their open source code within days of a vulnerability being publicly reported. With this release, the Black Duck Hub also adds new support for additional programming languages, now identifying known vulnerabilities for Java, C, C++, C#, RubyGems, Nuget, JavaScript and Scala. Further, the Black Duck Hub continuously monitors for new vulnerabilities reported against open source software already in use.

Black Duck Software Adds Binary Analysis Tool Integration to Protex Solution

Black Duck Software announced new deep binary analysis capabilities added to Protex, its solution for managing open source compliance. Protex helps organizations understand which licenses govern the modification, use and distribution of open source binaries and source code in their code base. Building on Protex’s license-compliance capabilities, Protex Binary Analysis Tool integration offers deeper analysis of custom binaries that may include open source code carrying additional license obligations and restrictions. The Protex BAT Integration offers customers not only access to Black Duck’s KnowledgeBase, which has more than 1.2 million open source projects and licensing data, but also an additional BAT KnowledgeBase with compliance data on 200,000 open source binary packages. Together, Protex and its integration with BAT yields a complete picture of open source software usage and associated license compliance risk on both source code and binary files in a single view.
