Nexus accurately identifies 99% of open source components. Competitors accurately identify only 15% and overwhelm teams with false positives and negatives. Sonatype's precise identification is powered by our patented Advanced Binary Fingerprinting (ABF) which matches components by Cryptographic Hash, Structural Similarity, Derived Coordinate, and File Name. Depending on the ecosystem, Nexus utilizes one or more methods to precisely identify each and every open source component.
