Protecode Announces Major Enhancements to its Award Winning System 4 Product Suite

OTTAWA, ON – November 28, 2011 – Protecode Inc., an innovative provider of open source adoption and management solutions, today announced major enhancements to its open source software management suite. Protecode System 4™, which allows organizations to adopt and manage open source and third party software attributes throughout the development cycle, now includes new reporting capabilities, workflow enhancements, and integration with additional development platforms. 

Protecode System 4’s enhancements to its standard reporting options now allow security vulnerabilities associated with scanned software packages to be highlighted. Once all external software content is identified, Protecode System 4 reports on any known security vulnerabilities as reported by common security vulnerability databases such as the National Vulnerability Database (NVD), CERT, and others.

Protecode System 4 can also identify and highlight encryption properties associated with the identified open source packages in a report. Reporting enhancements highlight Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCN) associated with the external content and as reported by the software suppliers, which reduces the effort required for export control compliance in various jurisdictions.

Protecode continues its seamless integration with existing tools and workflow processes. Part of Protecode System 4, the Library Auditor ™, now integrates with the Git version control system, enabling real-time analysis and management of software attributes. Git joins other platform integration capabilities of Protecode System 4 such as SVN, Perforce, and IBM Rational ClearCase. Protecode features for enterprise adoption includes seamless scalability to multi-site and multi-product organizations, LDAP support, and Code Administrator™ enhancements for Package Pre-Approval workflow.

“IDC has seen demand for open source burgeoning with a volatile economy and increased maturity on the part of available software and communities. As this occurs, the need for management of open source becomes a key aspect of the Application Lifecycle Management process,” said Melinda Ballou, program director of IDC’s Application Lifecycle Management Service. “New capabilities that simplify usage and reduce manual effort in determining code composition and that help support compliance obligations make it easier for organizations to leverage open source code, which reduces development efforts, development time and helps minimize risk.”
