Here are the basic requirements of software composition analysis that, we believe you need to ensure your SCA does all that it can do for you:
Companies need to ensure that the selected SCA tool can cover all coding languages used by the organization and it covers vulnerability management and license compliance.
The NVD relied solely of companies are left blind to the risks of unexplored new vulnerabilities for inclusion and weaknesses that will not fit into the NVD as they install in an individual repository or project issue tracker. A more comprehensive database is, aggregating its data from multiple sources, it better to cover the reasons and to offer full ensured services.
Software composition analysis tools enable developers and security teams to set up their own policies on vulnerability management and license compliance. The automated implementation of the policy removes the company’s need to see their developer shoulder, knowing that whatever set guidelines are being enforced throughout SDLC.
Using SCA tools to enforce policies, a company can assess the vulnerability with severity and decide which weaknesses to be approved or rejected from their code. Policies can also be implemented to alert non-licensing issues, and may be set to start workflow, trigger alerts, open issues tickets, or even fail to build.
SCA tools must be seamlessly integrated with repositories and build tools, package managers and CI servers with the goal of providing developer data that can be done as early as possible. The best SCA tools can support the expenditure for the entire SDLC, from the pre-selected option to broadcast usage.
