Open source software (OSS) has been an integral but sometimes overlooked constituent of today’s security infrastructure. We believe that security is evolving and will follow the same trajectory as enterprise infrastructure in embracing commercial OSS models. Will open source security companies like Snyk, Project Discovery, SocPrime, Teleport, Truffle Security, Tailscale and R2C follow the same path as Hashicorp, Confluent, Databricks and many of the other successful, public commercial OSS infrastructure companies?
Leading security investors Andrew Smyth and Chenxi Wang of Rain Capital will discuss the current state of affairs in open source security. They will cover why more and more security founders are choosing open source as a business strategy, the lack of resources available to security practitioners looking for relevant open source security projects and why we created The Open Source Security Index.
1) We’ll identify the fastest-growing open source security projects and who’s behind them
2) Which areas of the security stack are adopting open source
3) The demand for developer-friendly security products
