Open source community

Community is important to us. Whether it's the security, open source or local community, we want to help make it stronger. Here are some of the ways that we get involved, support and give back.


We support the Open Source Community by

  • Building: We're proud to have grown the Metasploit community to 175,000+ active users and contributors.
  • Mentoring: We support fledgling open source projects Ghost, Buttinsky and Androguard providing promotional and strategic business guidance, as well as financial support to help them get off the ground.
  • Backing: As part of our Magnificent7 program, we're also supporting more established open source projects such as John the Ripper and Cuckoo Sandbox to help them achieve their next development goals.
