There are 50+ types of open source licenses. FOSSA analyzes the open source code within your code base, allowing developers and enterprises to proactively identify license-related risks in their code base and to satisfy license obligations.
FOSSA helps companies understand what is in their code, how to manage risk, and intelligently assemble better code. FOSSA links into your code base (one-click integration with Github and easy to point it to other external sources) and runs a mock build on your code. From this, FOSSA gleans which open source projects you are leveraging and which licenses you are beholden to.
Companies can create bespoke license policies for their business and compliance requirements and FOSSA will identify any license exposure that falls outside the policy. FOSSA integrates with project management and error tracking systems (such as Jira) and fits into existing software development workflows rather than forcing developers to spend more time inside FOSSA.
