Performant, Scalable Linux Protection

Purpose-built for Linux systems, Capsule8 helps you prevent, detect, and automatically respond to unwanted activity across your production environments.

Capsule8 will not only detect the simplest commodity malware or rogue developer behavior, but well-resourced attack campaigns using zero-days as well. Using kprobes and perf to collect system telemetry via distributed agents, Capsule8 supports speed, stability, and scalability, unlike traditional endpoint protection solutions.


Linux Detection
Incident Investigation
Cloud Native Protection
Runtime Container Security
Policy Enforcement
Regulatory Compliance
Identify sophisticated attacks as they happen. Detect unwanted activity without requiring a kernel module, orchestration, baselining or system scans. Have fewer false positive alerts, reduce triage, investigation, storage and network costs, while providing more assurance of security posture.

Gain real-time visibility into security-relevant data and investigate incidents with meaningful, near-real-time telemetry, without the gathering and querying negatively impacting workload stability and performance. See exactly what logged-in users do on your infrastructure without risking performance issues on live systems.

No matter what mix you are of on-prem legacy systems, public and private cloud, or microservices and containers, Capsule8 protects your infrastructure as it looks now and as you continue to evolve it.

Capsule8 provides detection and resilience for Linux systems in any environment, including container runtimes such as Docker, containerd, and CRI-O. Our detection is crafted with the threat models of cloud-native systems in mind and pinpoints workloads, not just hosts.

Capsule8 allows you to create custom policies leveraging container metadata, so you can extend protection to meet the concerns of your unique environments. For instance, you can restrict the ability for specific containers to write new files, run new programs after startup, read cloud metadata, have multiple users running, make outbound network connections, or spawn shells.
Apply policies around privileged access to systems (PAM) and file integrity monitoring (FIM). Capsule8 Protect supports compliance requirements while driving down noise. Capsule8 is a cost effective compliance solution, helping shift more mission critical workloads to the public cloud.

Achieve and enforce a compliant Linux enterprise whether governed by PCI, HIPAA, FINRA, or FedRAMP with a single solution for your production environment. Our monitoring, detection and response capabilities are enabled for you to meet your compliance requirements.

Security Designed for Lower Operational Costs and Less Downtime Risk

Avoid costly downtime, overloaded hosts, or stability snafus caused by traditional security tools by enabling resource limits (including CPU, memory, and data collection limits) and running without a kernel module.

A single host-based agent designed for uptime, scalability and reliability protects all of your Linux hosts and nodes in any environment — whether workloads you operate in clouds or data centers.

Trusted by the Most Transformative Organizations
Adedayo Adetoye Senior Manager Security Architecture and Engineering
“We wanted a comprehensive host-based intrusion detection and response system that is capable of giving us deep visibility into what is happening within our environment as well as capability to respond in a systematic way to potentially malicious behaviour.

Capsule8 provides us with a powerful set of fundamental building blocks for hardening our security posture through its standard and custom detection capabilities that we can write.”
Adam Fest Head of Security Engineering, Databricks
“Capsule8 is helping to increase alerting, monitoring, and prevention in Databricks’ platform to protect our environments. Our close collaboration with the Capsule8 team has made integrating their product painless.”
