SourceClear provides software for spotting potential vulnerabilities that might be lying dormant in open-source code and could pose security issues for applications that rely on the code. The startup is announcing today the launch of a free tier called Open.
The idea here is to “work with the community [to] make it the best security tool possible for developers,” SourceClear founder and CEO Mark Curphey wrote in a blog post.
This new tier could expose many more developers to the tool by virtue of its being free, in contrast to competing tools Coverity and HP’s Fortify.
Premium tiers of service offer better support and “advanced vulnerability analysis,” among other things, according to the startup’s pricing page.
San Francisco-based SourceClear announced a $10 million funding round in October.
