Proactively evaluate the security, licensing and maintenance risks of open source software using Tidelift’s
centralized, structured, and continuously curated database of insights spanning millions of open source packages.
Tidelift partners directly with the maintainers of thousands of the most popular open source packages and pays them to validate they follow secure development practices like those outlined by government and industry, such as the NIST Secure Software Development Practices and the OpenSSF Scorecards project. This provides organizations with unique first-party, maintainer-sourced insights such as:
Tidelift aggregates data across multiple upstream package manager ecosystems and source repositories into a centralized and structured format. As part of this process, Tidelift enhances the data collected from various sources to produce insights such as:
The upstream data is analyzed and further researched by the Tidelift data science team with the aim of providing more contextualized insights for our customers. Packages and releases are analyzed on a number of criteria, producing insights such as:
Ensure stakeholders are able to respond to issues and vulnerabilities by giving them appropriate visibility of open source software usage across the organization.
Tidelift provides a detailed view into the open source components the organization is using along with the transitive dependencies being pulled into your software development lifecycle. SBOMs include insights such as:
Organizations have access to granular mapping of specific open source packages being used across individual applications, including:
With Tidelift, organizations get advanced visibility into whether a dependency is direct or transitive with the ability to identify how specific dependencies are being pulled into their code.
Mitigate long-term organizational risk by standardizing open source software management practices and policies across the organization.
Tidelift’s built-in security standards provide guidance for developers on what releases are allowed within the organization, based on our continuous evaluation and decision-making. Exceptions can also be created for specific use cases not impacted by a vulnerability.
Included out-of-the-box licensing templates ensure developers have the guidance they need to use packages with approved licenses, preventing the organization from being exposed to unexpected and unwanted legal risk.
Organizations can also implement maintenance standards that guide developers away from using deprecated or out-of-date package versions.
