Open Source Software Audit

Reduce open source risks with our expert due diligence for investments and M&A

What is an Open Source Software Audit ?

Most companies will use open source software when creating their own product. If you're investing in a software company, you need to know what you're buying. Nearly all software companies will use Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) to help build out their products. But not all developers will keep track of the software they use or read the licence properly. It’s important that licenses and compliance are implemented correctly. But as a software project grows, those tasks can get tricky. Staying legal can be a challenge for most software teams. Failing to implement FOSS code correctly can render commercial code useless as Open Source rules can apply that any adaptation of that code should also then be submitted back into the open project it came from to help benefit others.

Why get an Open Source Software Audit?

If a developer has used a licence that require costs per use or for any changes to the code to be submitted back to the open source project this could mean increased costs or render the IP useless. During development developers can find code from around the web that help them build a solution quickly and get the results they need fast. This often means using open source code which is fine, but it is rarely documented properly and can cause issues further down the line.
