SAN FRANCISCO, March 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Palamida(TM), the leader in software intellectual property management solutions and audit services, today announced that it has expanded its extensive compliance library to include over 6,200 new open source projects while adding support for the popular Python programming language. Python is one of the three "P-languages" enjoying massive acceptance among developers as part of the open source LAMP platform that includes: Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP/Perl/Python. Detection of Python open source software is increasingly important among the large number of companies utilizing the LAMP stack as a core component of their own software development activities. "Python has always had strong acceptance among the open source community. With enterprise adoption of application servers like Zope and content management systems like Plone beginning to accelerate, we felt that adding Python to our Open Source Repository provides important support to our early adopter enterprise customers," said Ray Waldin, CTO of Palamida. The Palamida Open Source Repository weighs in at 3 Terabytes of data, representing the current OSS projects collected by the company. This massive store of information is then distilled into an efficient, searchable dataset, or "compliance library". Condensing the Repository provides a profoundly streamlined database that is easily distributed, allowing customers to store and search against the data using existing computer systems and storage solutions. Extensible and customizable, the compliance library empowers users to freely add their own proprietary code as well as licensed commercial code -- providing an in-depth code inventory and complete audit trail. Palamida's flagship product, IP Amplifier(TM), relies on the compliance library during code base scans to identify software intellectual property concerns. The compliance library, in conjunction with IP Amplifier, provides superior detection of open source software products and associated licenses, as well as copyright and trademark information on: * Over 780K open source project versions * 140K unique open source projects * 10 million Java names * Over 392 million open source files * Nearly 7 billion source code snippets * Over 390 million binary files About the Company Palamida enables organizations to manage the growing complexity of multi-source development environments by answering the question, "What's in your code?" Through detailed analysis of the code base customers gain insight into their code inventory -- a critical component of quality control, risk mitigation, and vulnerability assessment. Palamida was founded in 2003, offering market leading solutions and services that allow organizations to safely and confidently leverage the power of open source in internal and external software development. Palamida's customers include Avaya, Cisco Systems, EMC, Microsoft and Sun Microsystems, among others. Read Palamida's blog at www.palamida.com/blog or for more information visit www.palamida.com .
