New York and Paris – May 16, 2023 – In an effort to control open-source software (OSS) risk in their software development, Norsk Titanium has selected CAST Highlight to serve as a “control tower” giving legal, security and operational leadership the ability to make informed decisions around the use of OSS components in their code.
After a consideration phase of multiple solutions spearheaded by the firm’s IT and legal teams, the value offered by CAST’s software intelligence solutions was deemed head and shoulders above competition.
Now CAST Highlight plugs directly into their source code and provides leadership with clear instantaneous, and actionable analyses on their application portfolio, prioritizing recommended actions around any significant licensing and security risk based on business impact.
Norsk Titanium IT Operations Manager Tim Dufrane said that the intuitiveness and value of the CAST Highlight made the decision to partner with CAST crystal clear.
“Implementing CAST Highlight has been a victory for both our legal and IT teams,” Dufrane said. “I was able to get the product up and running in no time and now for the first time we’re able to accurately and immediately understand and mitigate any OSS risk in our portfolio of internal applications without disrupting our development teams. Just a massive win for all involved.”
CAST, the software intelligence leader, provides software that ‘understands’ multi-technology software systems and automatically derives insights about their inner workings–interactions between all its elements, transaction flows, data access paths, changes needed to move to cloud, open-source risks, green impact, ISO 5055 compliance, etc. It is used globally by thousands of digital leaders, helping them make smarter decisions, maintain, and transform custom software with greater speed, and exert better ongoing control of the risks involved.
