According to new research from Sonatype, 92% of large enterprises have implemented or plan to adopt a Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) in response to the Order. The research also highlights the increasing importance of open source hygiene in cybersecurity and an influx of investment in software supply chain management technologies from enterprise companies.
