Black Duck Suite
The Black Duck Suite is an advanced enterprise-class solution to the unique management, compliance and security challenges associated with open source. It brings together the Black Duck Code Center, Export and Protex products into a unified framework, and also includes a robust SDK which enables integration with IBM Rational, Microsoft and other build tools and environments. The Black Duck Suite automates key processes related to open source code management over the application development (AppDev) life cycle– search, select, approve, validation and ongoing monitoring. Code Center supports the front-end of the development process where developers search for and select open source components, as well as the ongoing monitoring of the components in use. Protex and Export are used on the back end of the process when code needs to be validated before it is deployed.
