ProtecodeCloud Complimentary Enables Efficient Access to List of Open Source Licenses and Copyrights in Software Portfolios

OTTAWA, CANADA & SAN DIEGO, CA - August 29, 2012 - Protecode, a leading provider of open source compliance solutions, today announced a free version of its popular hosted open source scanning and license management solution at the inaugural CloudOpen conference, co-located with LinuxCon, August 29-31, in San Diego, CA.

ProtecodeCloud ComplimentaryTM is a Software as a Service (SaaS) code scanning tool that allows organizations to uncover open source and third party content in their code. Because it is a hosted solution, there is no software to install or update. ProtecodeCloud Complimentary is ideally suited to any size organization, especially those that are already developing software in the cloud.

Organizations can sign up through Protecode's secure website at www.protecode.com, and will be given seven day access to ProtecodeCloud to scan their code and obtain a list of all open source licenses and copyrights in their code portfolio. Additional detailed reports can be obtained by signing up for one of the paid editions, ProtecodeCloud Professional or Premium.

"Linux and open source software components are pervasive in new product development across market segments. With many organizations now developing software for the cloud, it makes sense for them to be able to manage license compliance in the cloud as well," said Amanda McPherson, vice president of marketing and developer services, The Linux Foundation.

Protecode will showcase its open source compliance solutions in booth #104 at CloudOpen. Additionally, Protecode COO Kamyar Emami will present on the topic of "Leveraging Open Source in Cloud Based Applications" on Friday, August 31 from 3:05-3:50pm.

Protecode also announced support for the Software Package Data Exchange (SPDX) standard, version 1.1 across all of its products. Protecode is a member of the SPDX work group, sponsored by the Linux Foundation, helping to drive innovation in open source compliance standards.
