Safe, maintainable, and effective use of an open source language in any organization takes teamwork. But different teams have different requirements for their open source projects, some of which may be conflicting. Use this open source checklist to make sure your open source software supply chain can meet the needs of your developers, DevOps, InfoSec, and compliance teams without causing conflicts, delays or undue risk in your software development workflows.

The ActiveState Platform can help address many of the issues faced by your key stakeholders by ensuring that the Python, Perl and Tcl language environments they interact with are secure and comply with licensing criteria, while eliminating many of the time-wasting tasks that limit developer productivity. ActiveState also helps developers identify security vulnerabilities through the CVE security dashboard. This helps enterprise open source projects stay protected against malicious security vulnerabilities that can be found in source code.

Your open source supply chain is bigger than you think. The ActiveState Platform can help you understand just how big, and then make it easy to secure and de-risk your use of open source languages. Try it for yourself!
