Free open source risk check with InstallShield

By

Flexera is offering a free subscription to FlexNet Code Aware to its InstallShield customers.

Flexera's InstallShield is a widely used tool for creating Windows installers.

Marking its 30th anniversary, the company is offering a free subscription to FlexNet Code Aware to customers with a current InstallShield maintenance contract.

FlexNet Code Aware makes it easy to check software for security and intellectual property risks associated with any open source components used.

“It’s critical that engineers are aware of open source security and compliance risks, and embed better processes into their installation builds to minimise those risks. Failing to do this has serious consequences, evidenced all too well in the recent Apache Struts 2 related data breach that put 143 million Equifax consumers’ personal data at risk,” said Flexera vice-president of product management Jeff Luszcz.

“InstallShield is the only installation development solution in the world empowering developers to automatically check for open source security and compliance risk as part of the build process, setting the foundation for a vulnerability-free build while also ensuring a smooth, error-free installation.

"By running a quick scan in the daily build, InstallShield becomes the first line of defence against open source software vulnerabilities such as Apache Struts.”
