SAN FRANCISCO, June 28 /PRNewswire/ — Palamida(TM), the leader in software risk management solutions for open source, today announced that it has enhanced IP Amplifier, the company's flagship intellectual property detection and reporting solution, with the addition of the GPL v3 analyzer functionality. Further expanding their solutions and services, Palamida has also created a comprehensive GPL v3 online educational resource repository, http://gpl3.palamida.com, to assist organizations looking to implement software licensed under GPL v3.
The analyzer functionality gives IP Amplifier customers the ability to quickly identify products in their code base that are using, or have indicated their intention to use, the new license. As products and organizations make the switch to GPL v3, IP Amplifier's in-depth compliance library will be updated to reflect the additions, providing timely updates to organizations actively scanning for evidence of the new GPL and related OSS license concerns. By providing a comprehensive IP Ingredients(TM) report of all open source software and known vulnerabilities, IP Amplifier offers an in-depth code base inventory, allowing organizations to proactively address intellectual property concerns and remediate a broad range of business and security issues.
"The GPL license has been the enabler of fifteen years of innovation in open source, and version 3 is equally important for the next decade or more. Managing open source licenses and their use is becoming a standard part of the development and deployment processes at many companies," said Mark Tolliver, CEO of Palamida, "As the broad-based and lengthy review process of the GPL comes to an end, the focus moves to practical decisions around its use. We are pleased to be able to offer the services and expertise of our team of license experts to create a unified source of GPLv3 information that provides both project teams and enterprise open source software users a centralized, online location representing the most up to date information available."
Convenient, Comprehensive GPL v3 Resource Center
In addition to adding the analyzer functionality to IP Amplifier, Palamida has created an online resource center at http://gpl3.palamida.com to assist organizations in understanding and tracking the progression of use toward the GPL v3. The site, available to all at no charge, will feature daily updates of information about the transition to the new license and will serve as a one-stop-shop for the most recent status summary of open source software projects that have adopted, or have indicated their intent to adopt, the new license. Comprised of a broad selection of coverage, Palamida's license experts provide a well-edited, relevant, and wide range of information from a variety of sources combined into a singular, easy-to-use resource.

IP Amplifier offers the Vulnerability Reporting Solution (VRS), a feature within Amplifier that provides timely information on open source vulnerabilities by leveraging proprietary information and data gathered from multiple repositories such as the National Vulnerability Database (NVD), a comprehensive cyber security database sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The NVD is run by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), with Common Vulnerability and Exposure (CVE) data from The MITRE Corporation.
Palamida enables organizations to manage the growing complexity of multi-source development environments by answering the question, "What's in your code?" Through detailed analysis of the code base customers gain insight into their code inventory — a critical component of quality control, risk mitigation, and vulnerability assessment.
Palamida was founded in 2003, offering market leading solutions and services that accelerate the adoption of open source within the enterprise environment by eliminating legal and vulnerability concerns associated with its use. Customers include Avaya, Cisco Systems, EMC, Microsoft and Sun Microsystems, among others. Read Palamida's blog at http://www.palamida.com/blog or for more information visit http://www.palamida.com.
