OpenLogic helps enterprises manage open source access
Open source software is no longer an enterprise pariah, but IT shops still want to manage and monitor its use among their internal developers. To that end, Broomfield, Colo.-based OpenLogic Inc. announced that it has updated its OpenLogic Exchange Enterprise Edition (OLEX EE) tool with expanded policy capabilities. Accessed through a Web-based portal, OLEX EE now includes list-based policy management in which an IT manager can pre-define open source packages as "white" (pre-approved), "black" (forbidden), or "gray" (in which an organization needs to approve open source use), explained Kim Weins, OpenLogic senior vice president of marketing.
