DFLabs Offers Incentive Program for Security Orchestration and Automation

DFLabs, a security orchestration, automation and response vendor with headquarters in Boston and Milan, has rolled out a Community Development Incentive Program, which provides incentives to developers for designing security solutions on the company’s platform. Compensation is based 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.

“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.”

DFLabs runbooks use hundreds of automated actions to provide workflows and execute a variety of data enrichment, notification, containment and custom actions intended to help responders assess, investigate and hunt for threats. The solution also facilitates knowledge transfer between incident response (IR) and SOC teams.

DFLabs also announced 100% growth in new bookings in 2018, adding new customers in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

The 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.
