OTTAWA, CANADA & KENT, UNITED KINGDOM - April 14, 2015 - Protecode, a leading provider of open source management solutions, today announced the expansion of its presence in the UK through a partnership with Source Code Control Limited.
Per the agreement, Source Code Control Ltd. will provide the UK market with support for Protecode's complete open source management solution. This includes:
• Protecode Enterprise System 4TM - a scalable workflow, scanning, and management solution for enterprises, suitable for large, multi-location organisations.
• Protecode CompactTM - a single seat code scanning solution that maintains all scanning and discovery features of its enterprise counterpart; best suited for smaller companies or individual departments within larger organisations.
• Software code auditing services - for UK organisations that intend to gain a clear insight into the composition of the software included in a financial transaction. Protecode can also bring their expertise to legal cases where an insight into code similarity between two or more portfolios is of interest.
"We have witnessed an increase in open source adoption in the UK in both the private and public sectors. Partnering with Protecode allows us to offer the solutions necessary to innovate with open source, while avoiding potential challenges associated with third party code," Martin Callinan, director, Source Code Control Ltd.
Protecode's products and services enable organisations to manage open source adoption at every stage of the product lifecycle. Protecode products scan code portfolios and create an inventory of open source, commercial, and proprietary code. Protecode products automatically report on all open source and third party content and any associated licenses, license obligations, security vulnerabilities, and encryption content.
