Identify and quantify Third-Party and Open Source software across your Application Portfolio

Open Source is everywhere. On average, an application uses more than 200 open source components. While it helps developers implement features faster, you need to keep control of these third-party components by continuously identifying, measuring and qualifying them.


Get the list of third-party security vulnerabilities impacting your applications

Open source brings huge value to your organization, but is also one of the major entry points for hackers. Highlight continuously identifies if the third-party components you’re using contain security vulnerabilities (CVEs).


Ensure your applications comply with your license policies

More than a thousand different license types exist in the Software industry. Each of them has its own legal subtleties and operational consequences that can put your software (and business) at risk. As your development teams are not legal experts, Highlight provides visibility on the licenses used in a matter of minutes.


Fight against technology obsolescence of your application landscape

For both functional and security reasons, it’s important that your third-party components are always up to date. Highlight helps you instantly detect which applications use obsolete component versions that require upgrades.


Visualize version timelines of Open Source components for smarter upgrades

Knowing that your app is using an obsolete or vulnerable version of a component is one thing, but you still need to decide which version you need to upgrade to. Highlight visualizes version timelines (and CVEs) of millions of open source projects to let your development team decide which upgrade path is best.
