The software composition analysis software allows developers to use third-party software components such as open-source software (OSS) and commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software with the proprietary code securely by scanning for all the embedded third-party components and analyzing the risks and vulnerabilities associated with these components. Further, the software identifies the license terms associated with the third-party components and accordingly allows the developers to define the usage, distribution policies and regulations.
Software composition analysis integrates to the software development lifecycle (SDLC) and continuously scans the software for vulnerabilities as the software is developed. The capabilities provided by SCA products include proprietary and third-party code scanning for embedded OSS and COTS software, vulnerability prioritization, integration into the DevSecOps ecosystem, operational risk management and Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) builder. It provides information about the latest versions and patches available for the discovered vulnerabilities. SCA vendors also provide a proprietary vulnerability database that includes the vulnerabilities that have not been officially reported as CVEs in the National Vulnerability Database (NVD).

“According to Abhishek Anant Garg, Analyst at Quadrant Knowledge Solutions, “The software composition analysis vendors continue to strengthen their capabilities by adding support for more development languages and integrated development environments, improving zero-day protection, and enhancing their integration capability using APIs. The SCA vendors are moving forward to integrate SCA and application security testing (AST) to provide a complete application development security suite enabling developers to ensure the security, quality, and viability of the software. “
