Flexera’s audit team reacted within hours when a critical contribution to an open source community required quick turn around on a forensic code scan of a large collection of micro service code. Adding to the complexity, due to budgetary constraints, we required a relatively strong estimate before the work could begin. Flexera met the deadline and budget estimate which allowed us to meet ours! Great work!

The emphasis in a M&A project is on results that can impact go/no-go decisions, valuation or remediation costs. Flexera acts as an independent third party and delivers accurate and timely audit to meet your deadlines. We alert your organizations to potential legal and security issues that may impact the transaction.


Flexera’s audit gets you to a secure and compliant state by identifying all major open source and commercial components in your application. These audits are commonly requested for:

  • Key Product Milestones
  • IP Litigation
  • Supplier Code
  • Open Sourcing Your Project

After your report is delivered to you, Flexera will discuss findings and detailed options to remediate problems uncovered in the audit. At the conclusion of the engagement and review, all materials in Flexera’s possession are deleted unless specific arrangements have been made with the client to preserve them.
