OpenLogic's M&A Open Source Audit service delivers fast, comprehensive source code scanning combined with detailed analysis and certification of license obligations to provide you with detailed due diligence information. The M&A Open Source Audit service includes:
Based on the specifics of your application, we use multiple scanning tools – including our OSS Deep Discovery source code scanning tool – to ensure comprehensive results with minimal false positives. Our source code scanning experts analyze the results to produce a due diligence report, which lists the embedded open source packages and licenses, and a summary of the license obligations.
Once all license obligations have been identified, we review the code and product to validate the steps that have been taken to comply with the open source licenses. We provide a report showing the compliance steps we have validated as well as a letter of certification on the obligations that were discovered. Limited indemnification is also provided on the results.
