Recognized as Leader in Managing Q&A and Security for Open Source Software

BURLINGTON, Mass., June 10, 2013 – Black Duck Software, the leading global provider of strategy, products and services for automating the management, governance and secure use of open source software, today announced it has been named to the SD Times 100 for the sixth consecutive year. The award recognizes the most influential organizations and innovators in software development annually. Black Duck was honored in the Q&A and Security category, acknowledging the company's leadership in ensuring that software incorporating open source code meets security and Q&A requirements through use of the Black Duck Suite.

"The software development industry is led by innovative companies like Black Duck," said Alan Zeichick, Editorial Director of BZ Media's SD Times. "When choosing the 2013 SD Times 100, we carefully considered each organization's products and services, reputation with software development managers, and the new ideas and thought leadership that it brings to the industry. Thanks to companies like Black Duck, a leader in managing Q&A and security for OSS, the art and science of software development continues to advance at a rapid pace."

The Black Duck Suite is the most powerful set of governance and compliance automation tools that enable development organizations to harness the power of open source technologies and methods. Suite 6.2, released in January 2013, builds on Black Duck's core platform with new license obligation management capabilities, new development tool integration support through Software Development Kit (SDK) enhancements and updated support for SPDX 1.1, allowing organizations to more effectively implement open source governance and compliance throughout the software development lifecycle.

"Black Duck is pleased to be recognized by SD Times as an innovator and influencer in the software development industry," said Peter Vescuso, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, Black Duck Software. "In addition to Q&A and Security, we've also been recognized in the Tools & Frameworks category in past years, which speaks to the value of the Black Duck Suite throughout the software development lifecycle. We're honored to be included in this prestigious list for the sixth consecutive year."

The SD Times 100, published annually since 2003, recognizes companies, non-commercial organizations, open source projects and other initiatives for innovation and leadership that most broadly set the agenda and advance the state of the art for software development managers and the industry. The eighth annual awards are featured in the June 1, 2013 issue and are available online at http://sdtimes.com/link/51682.
