What makes CodeShield stand out

Fingerprinting vulnerability analysis

Thanks to our innovative ‘fingerprinting’ technology, the entire bytecode of all included Open-Source components is analyzed. This procedure massively increases the quality and analysis-depth compared to other approaches that solely rely on metadata. Therefore, CodeShield also finds hidden vulnerabilities.
