Terrascan is an open-source tool that is used to detect compliance and security violations across Infrastructure as Code (IaC) frameworks.

Terrascan ensures that IaC definitions adhere to security best practices and can detect issues that may cause security breaches, data loss, or service disruptions. Terrascan supports several popular IaC frameworks, including Terraform, Kubernetes, Helm, AWS CloudFormation, Azure Resource Manager, and Google Cloud Deployment Manager.

The tool uses a set of predefined policies that can be customized to match the organization's specific security and compliance requirements. The policies are based on industry-standard security frameworks such as NIST, CIS, PCI-DSS, and GDPR.
