Contrast Security is expanding its free developer tool, CodeSec, to include Open Source Security (OSS) and Software Bill of Material (SBOM) creation with its new SCA capability. Empowering developers to Identify vulnerable libraries in OSS and receive actionable remediation guidance, allowing them to ship code faster.
