Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need both SBOM management and SCA?

While software composition analysis (SCA) is essential for identifying security vulnerabilities in software components, SBOM management through tools like Sonatype SBOM Manager extends your capabilities to audit third-party software comprehensively. It enables you to share verified SBOMs with clients and regulators and allows for swift action regarding issues in commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software. A dual approach of SCA and SBOM management ensures a thorough analysis and risk management strategy that covers all bases of your software ecosystem.
