Many companies believe they know and have a handle on how and where Open Source Software (OSS) is being used in their business. Sadly, this is far from true.
“The State of Open Source License Compliance” is based on research conducted by Flexera’s audit services team. The data shows that companies are vastly under-reporting OSS use and are in the dark on vulnerabilities and license compliance problems that exist in their applications.
