Palamida, Merlin to team up for federal work

Palamida Inc. and Merlin International have formed a partnership in an effort to develop a federal market for open source compliance and risk mitigation solutions.

The combined offerings will make it safer and easier for agencies to use third-party software code, according to the companies. Palamida of San Francisco specializes in software intellectual property management and audit services, while Denver-based Merlin contributes IT systems.

Together, the two companies can give agencies the tools to conduct detailed analyses of software code, a necessary part of minimizing the risks of running it, according to Mark Tolliver, Palamida's CEO.

"Understanding the origin, location and use of this code throughout the code base is especially critical when assessing the vulnerabilities of internally developed applications," he said.

Palamida's IP Amplifier product scans an organization's existing code base to find and catalog commercial and open source software components. It then connects those components to the appropriate licenses and agency policies.
