DFLabs CDI Program extends open approach to security orchestration and automation

DFLabs unveiled its Community Development Incentive (CDI) Program which rewards and encourages the sharing of innovations for the DFLabs IncMan SOAR platform.

The DFLabs CDI Program extends the company’s recent initiatives to foster an open approach to security orchestration, including an Open Integration Framework for linking third party security tools and actions, a free IncMan SOAR (CE) Community Edition and a Community Portal with developer resources and a forum.

DFLabs also announced 100% growth in new bookings in 2018, and that it added new customers in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. In the past 12 months, the company was recognized for its technology innovations by analyst firms 451 Research and Ovum, and received product awards from Cyber Defense Magazine, Government Security News and Business Intelligence Group. DFLabs also established technology partnerships with LogPoint, McAfee, Micro Focus (formerly HPE), Microsoft, Tufin and more. In addition, the company grew third party integrations with IncMan SOAR by more than 150%.

“We firmly believe that a shared approach to security integrations and knowledge transfer will enable organizations to implement increasingly more automated incident response workflows to limit the impact of threats,” said Dario Forte, CEO of DFLabs. “That’s why we created the DFLabs CDI Program and are committed to making DFLabs IncMan the most open SOAR architecture in the industry.”

To provide open access to innovations developed using DFLabs IncMan SOAR integrations, Runbooks and Playbooks, the CDI Program will financially compensate and recognize contributors for sharing their new ideas and implementations. Submitted content will be evaluated on three criteria: complexity, quality and market demand.

A single submission to the CDI Program that receives a high score in all three categories will earn up to $100. Each integration file is considered a separate submission. Therefore, an integration with four actions could earn up to $500 based on containing one integration definition file and four action definition files. Since creating integrations requires access to the IncMan SOAR platform, third parties that are not DFLabs customers can use the free IncMan SOAR Community Edition.
