Streamline the development process

Remove obstacles that slow down application development.

  • Improve decision making with contextually relevant, maintainer-originated data made available directly in the software development lifecycle
  • Define a paved path of pre-vetted, approved open source components that reduces duplicative work and accelerates development
  • Reduce time to approve new components with a streamlined process integrated into your existing workflow

Improve open source software supply chain health and security

Identify and remove security, maintenance, and licensing-related risk.

  • Analyze and document an always-up-to-date software bill of materials (SBOM)
  • Assess application risk against open source components evaluated by Tidelift

The Tidelift Subscription helps you streamline the development process by removing obstacles that slow down developers while identifying and removing open source-related risk.


What’s included in the Tidelift Subscription?

software bill of materials

Open source management tools

Continuously inventory application dependencies while creating up-to-date and risk-reviewed software bills of materials (SBOMs) for all applications. Identify and measure risks and easily review any new dependency information.

Tidelift catalog

Keep constant watch over project health with security vulnerability advice and license annotation provided by Tidelift and maintainer partners, and make informed decisions about which releases to approve.

Tidelift catalogs
track dependencies with custom catalogs

Custom catalogs

Combine Tidelift standards with organizational policies to create a paved path of curated, tracked, and managed open source components. Custom catalogs enable tracking of internal “inner source” dependencies as well.

"Tidelift is positioned as the single source of content for supported technologies so enterprises can build and manage their software using known-good OSS components."
