Enforce policies automatically

Your teams decide together what level of risk your company is comfortable with. Then automatically enforce policies early and everywhere across the SDLC with few false positives or negatives.

Protect against risks that can exploit your software in ways that are harmful to your business or customers.

Protect against legal risk from open source license obligations. An example is the GPL license which requires public disclosure of source code.

Protect against risk from low-quality components. Sonatype uses a variety of metrics to assess quality including age and popularity.

This is a catch-all category to protect against any other kind of risk, usually related to organizational priorities. One example could be ownership of a component.
