NetApp announced the availability of Elastigroup for Microsoft Azure Spot Virtual Machines (VMs).
Capsule8 emerged from stealth mode to unveil its plans for a container-aware, real-time threat protection platform designed to protect legacy and next-generation Linux infrastructures from both known and unknown attacks.
Founded by experienced hackers John Viega, Dino Dai Zovi and Brandon Edwards, Capsule8 is being built on the real-world experience of its founders in building and bringing to market defensive systems to protect against exploitation of previously unknown vulnerabilities. The company raised seed funding of $2.5 million from Bessemer Venture Partners, as well as individual investors Shardul Shah of Index Ventures and Jay Leek of ClearSky. The funding will help fuel the launch of the Capsule8 platform this spring.
With the launch of its platform this spring, Capsule8 will provide real-time threat protection that detects and prevents known and zero-day attacks in production infrastructure. Capsule8’s security will span the entire Linux infrastructure in data centers and in the cloud as well as across virtual machines, bare metal, and containers. With intelligent investigation that leverages artificial intelligence and security analytics, Capsule8 provides visibility for complex applications with high fidelity alerting. Moreover, Capsule8 enables organizations to optimize their existing security investment through SIEM and forensic tool integration.
