Exciting news! Today we are announcing that we are joining forces with Snyk!

FossID’s mission has always been to help companies maximize their open source software adoption efficiency by equipping them with accurate, fast and automated Software Composition Analysis (SCA) tools. We are now teaming up with Snyk, the leader in cloud developer-first security, and with a shared developer-focused vision of facilitating open source adoption and faster innovation, our combined offering will bring you a complete, integrated tool suite for your open source compliance and security efforts.

By joining forces with Snyk, FossID’s capabilities will be integrated into Snyk’s Software Composition Analysis (SCA) product, Snyk Open Source, extending the developer-first security and license compliance mindset and experience to teams worldwide.

Open source software is a key pillar of modern software development and developers rely on it to build their applications more rapidly. At the same time, developers are increasingly being tasked with taking more responsibility for securing their code and staying compliant.

Snyk’s developer-first platform seeks to empower developers to rise up to this challenge and we are excited to see FossID’s technology play an important role in its development.

We are just starting the integration process and will provide more information when relevant. For now, we will not make any changes to our products or services so you can continue using FossID the way you always do.
