Norsk Titanium, Hønefoss, Norway, has selected CAST Highlight from software developer CAST Software, Paris, France, in its attempt to control open-source software (OSS) risk. While OSS has various benefits, there are also growing risks including security issues and IP licensing requirements. CAST Highlight gives legal, security, and operational leadership departments the ability to make informed decisions around the use of OSS components in their code.
The Software as a Service (SaaS) product plugs directly into the source code and reportedly provides leadership with clear instantaneous, and actionable analyses on the application portfolio, prioritising recommended actions around any significant licensing and security risk based on business impact.

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.”
