CAST Highlight is the Software Intelligence SaaS platform to monitor software health, cloud readiness, complexity & cost of your Application Portfolio with code-level analytics. Take control of third-party components and open source software to mitigate license, security and obsolescence risks.
Identify Third-Party and Open Source Software
On average, an application uses +200 open source components. While OSS helps developers implement faster, you need to continuously identify and qualify these third-party components.
Complete listing of known third-party security vulnerabilities
Open source is one of the major entry points for hackers. Highlight continuously identifies if the third-party components you’re using contain security vulnerabilities (CVEs).
Ensure your applications comply with your license policies
As your development teams are not legal experts, Highlight provides visibility on the licenses used in a matter of minutes.
Fight technology obsolescence
For both functional and security reasons, it’s important that your third-party components are always up to date. Highlight instantly detects which applications use obsolete component versions that require upgrades.
Visualize Open Source component life cycles
Highlight visualizes version timelines (and CVEs) of millions of open source projects to help development team decide the best upgrade path easily.
