Deepfence Open Source Community Update – August 2022

Deepfence Open Source Community Update – August 2022
August 19, 2022

We’ve seen some tremendous momentum since our last open source community update and are excited to share our most recent milestones.

Recapping the launch of ThreatMapper 1.4

Last week we joined the security community at Black Hat, one of the world’s premier cybersecurity events. We could think of no better stage upon which to unveil our boldest and biggest release yet – ThreatMapper 1.4. 

ThreatMapper 1.4 delivers all these new open source features (and more):

  • ThreatGraph, a powerful new feature that uses runtime context like network flows to prioritize threat scan results and enables organizations to narrow down attack path alerts from thousands to a handful of the most meaningful (and threatening)
  • Agentless cloud security posture management (CSPM) of cloud assets mapped to various compliance controls, such as CIS, HIPAA, GDPR, SOC 2, and others
  • YaraHunter, the industry’s first open source malware scanner for cloud native environments

We first open sourced ThreatMapper in October 2021, and since then we’ve packed in more must-have cloud native security features, making it truly an industry first. There is no other project, open source or commercial, that applies these comprehensive features and capabilities across the cloud native continuum.  

If you’re looking for some resources to help you get you started with ThreatMapper 1.4, check out the announcement blog post, or head on over to GitHub to grab the source code

Celebrating 4000+ GitHub stars!

In addition to ThreatMapper, we maintain four additional open source projects so you can better protect your cloud native estate:

  • YaraHunter: Use YARA rules to scan builds, containers and filesystems to find indicators of malware.
  • PacketStreamer: A lightweight packet collector, supporting distributed hosts, clouds, and Kubernetes.
  • SecretScanner: Find unprotected secrets, tokens, and authentication keys in containers and file systems. It’s included in ThreatMapper, but is also a standalone open source project of its own. 
  • FlowMeter: Employ machine learning techniques to classify network flows based on packet headers.

We’re excited to celebrate a new milestone: Deepfence open source projects now have 4000+ stars on GitHub!
