The ease of identifying and managing the open source code vulnerabilities and license risks.

Ease in identifying the security exposures and hidden vulnerabilities created by open source components.
Time to market is faster for identifying the vulnerabilities early during the development stage.
open source license management becomes so easy now.

Pros

The integrations points are quite very wide and cater to whatever type of CI/ CDthat you may want to use, also, the IDE integrations are quite easy to deploy, thereby not locking you into a corner if your DevOps team are fixed on one particular type of technologies. Also, the accuracy and detection capability seems to be very solid

Cons

not sure if there is something that i did not really like, maybe initially it did not have the code snippets, but that has been taken care of now ; giving the solution better capability and usage experience

Ability to detect open source vulnerabilities in our code.

Pros

Ability to detect open source vulnerabilities in our code. Pre-sales contact & support was good (demo, trial etc). Clean interface. Performance improved in v4.0.0.

Cons

Difficult installation process, made more complicated with the introduction of Docker in v4.0.0 & with introduction of mandatory SSL/TLS web server certificate which requires troubleshooting trust issues. Support team are reluctant to pick up the phone or enter into telephone support, with sporadic email communication being the favoured option. Some gaps in documentation. Why is there no pre-built Black Duck Hub virtual appliance that I can drop into VMware? No documentation for implementing with vSphere Integrated Containers (VIC), only documentation for Docker & Openshift. Reporting improvements still to be made.

Response from Black Duck

Thank you for providing feedback about your experience with Black Duck Hub. We¿re so sorry you are having issues ¿ and we¿d like to work together to fix that. We have escalated your case so that we can resolve it quickly.

Our customer support team strives to provide support in the way that works best for you, so we noted in your account that you prefer to be reached via phone. A senior support representative will reach out to you via phone.

Many of the issues you experienced during deployment were due to our old AppMgr architecture. The new Docker deployment is a more stable environment built to fix many of the issues you experienced. The Docker deployment can be harder to implement and run the first time; our senior support representative will be guiding you through this process. We will do better next time you have an issue; please escalate any issues you have to your Customer Success Manager.

We are working in improving Open Source Culture in our Company and Customers: Black Duck HUB is a very good tool for awareness about legal, security and operational risks in using Open Source Components.

Pros

We are working in improving Open Source Culture in our Company and Customers: Black Duck HUB is a very good tool for awareness about legal, security and operational risks in using Open Source Components.
A very good thing is that it provide features for code scanning, independently from language and technology, also integrated with CI/CD tools like Jenkins.
The GUI is very easy to use and intuitive, the dashboard give a lot of information about Open Source Components in the project and you can take advantage of notification about new vulnerability.
In the latest versions Back Duck Hub is also improved in remediation suggestions about vulnerability.
Black Duck provide also good reports and you can customize it using restful API and direct access to a Report Database.
What is more it is really easy to install, we use the docker compose version: just install Docker, download images and run a command to set up the environment or upgrade to a new version!
Last but not least the technical support and customer care is really good.

Cons

Black Duck HUB is a quite new product, despite it has very famous and consolidate ancestors like Protex. So some features can improve and better meet users needs, especially about reports and API. Also documentation can improve .

Pros

I love the speed and overall simplicity of the application. It does a good job of finding most open source packages and performs identification automatically. It is very useful to see where a component is being used across my organization, as well as see other factors beyond license risk like security and operational risk.

Cons

The application is expensive due to the billing model that enforces a quota on amount of code scanned. This disincentivizes me to use the application when I would ordinarily want to scan as much of my code as possible due to its ease of use. It has fewer features when compared to Protex, but Black Duck is slowly resolving this.

Response from Black Duck

Thank you for your feedback, we love hearing from our customers. You are correct ¿ Hub features are continually improved and we hope you are staying up to date and enjoying the new features. We have been working hard to close the gap on feature differences, and most will be available in Hub by end of the year. Additionally, Hub has many features not available in Protex, including showing security vulnerabilities. If you haven¿t already checked it out, check out one of our favorite new features in this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4v2WwVQs1I) ¿ Hub Detect!
