M&A Due Diligence

Uncover Unknown Open Source Components and Associated Legal, Export, and Security Risks

Your business, legal and engineering teams need a fast, secure and thorough analysis of software intellectual property (IP) assets when an merger and acquisition (M&A) transaction is in motion. Black Duck's Open Source Audits help you quickly identify open source and third-party code along with related software provenance and licensing obligations. Armed with this knowledge, you can better understand the value of target assets and avoid post-transaction surprises.

Our processes are fine-tuned and our expert consultants are trained to provide the responsiveness, speed and discretion required to reduce business risk, meet deadlines, and keep the deal moving.

Black Duck's Audit Services:

  • Discover undeclared and unknown open source and third-party software and associated licenses to mitigate potential legal exposure
  • Provide a more thorough and accurate analysis than possible through manual audits by using multiple code scanning techniques
  • Detect encryption algorithms that can impact and restrict the legal export of acquired software
  • Highlight security vulnerabilities and other risks that can impact software asset value in an Open Source Risk Assessment
  • Compare target code and development processes to industry standards with a Code Quality Audit
