Contrast SCA (Software Composition Analysis) enables businesses to protect their software supply chain by identifying real threats from third-party components across the entire software development lifecycle. Contrast includes repository level SCA, which allows developers to run SCA early in the development stage to understand dependencies while security teams can understand their risks in runtime and production.
End-to-End Software Supply Chain Visibility
Flag security gaps embedded in your software supply chain - open-source, commercial, and proprietary code - scaling across dev, testing, and production environments.
Software Developer Ease-of-Use
Embed secure coding within developers’ native CI/CD processes to help shift left and find actionable findings during routine build and testing workflows.
No More Security Testing Silos
Test the application as a whole- both custom and third-party code - at each stage of the software development lifecycle. Aggregated security testing enables actionable remediation by highlighting which libraries are invoked by the application.
We were able to analyze whether our own built software would be vulnerable to the Log4j zero-day, using the Contrast Secure Code Platform, and got the answer within 30 seconds by just looking at the Libraries menu! How fast is that!

Contrast SCA for Log4j
Contrast SCA identified that the application uses the vulnerable version of log4j. Our runtime context also allows you to identify which applications use JMSAppender, the specific class that can be exploited using this CVE.
Full Software Observability
Embed third-party software testing throughout the software lifecycle
As a shared service across the Contrast Application Security Platform, Contrast SCA provides third-party software visibility without the need to deploy any additional tooling
Avoid erroneous findings by assessing custom and third-party code simultaneously
Embed testing for vulnerable third-party libraries within native CI/CD and runtime testing
Flag library risk within cloud-native applications and block attacks on vulnerable libraries in production
Runtime Library Usage
Prioritize the most immediate risk based on which libraries are used
Highlight which libraries are used by the application and how often down to the specific class, file, or module
Prioritize remediation workflows based on which libraries are actually called at runtime
Enable developers to fix vulnerable libraries fast by focusing on the most relevant third-party software risk
Dependency Risk Management
Mitigate security debt by accounting for transitive dependency risk
Integrate the Contrast CLI into native CI/CD processes to populate the dependency tree and highlight potential risk
Flag software supply chain risk by identifying potential instances of dependency confusion
Contextualize how dependencies are pulled into the application to streamline remediation efforts
Real-Time Inventory and Governance
Stay up-to-date on third-party software inventory and institute scalable controls
Export library versioning, vulnerability, licensing and environment data to a standardized Software Bill of Materials (SBOM)
Ensure rapid response to emerging threats with automated alerts for new vulnerabilities in deployed libraries
Institute scalable policy controls for third-party security and licensing and enforce within native pipelines
