Compliance and security
Many of the world’s largest banks, insurance companies and government agencies rely on Rocket Open Source Languages and Tools for z/OS. That’s why we feel it's essential that we check our deliverables for vulnerabilities and follow proper licensing requirements.
All of our products are:
- Continuously kept up to date against the NIST National Vulnerability Database
- Scanned for both security vulnerabilities and conformance to proper open-source licensing prior to release
Our Open-Source Support packages are based on the same world-class, customer-centric principles as our other support offerings. When it comes to open-source support, we're offering support and fixes for open-source development tools as opposed to consultancy or solution engineering services.
