The folks at CB Insight recently released a new report, “Cyber Defenders 2020” where they highlight what they consider emerging cybersecurity trends for 2020 and recognize the startups they believe will shape the space in the coming year. The report discusses vendors in a number of categories, including Anomalous Behavior Detection, Third-Party Risk Management, and Zero-Trust Networking. Capsule8 is honored to be included in the report in the Container Security category, alongside Anchore. It’s important to note that Capsule8 also protects your Linux infrastructure beyond just containers, such as bare-metal, or heterogeneous as bare-metal, virtualized, single cloud or hybrid, or some combination, but containers are a huge focus right now for a lot of teams looking to modernize their current production environment.
Container use is on the rise, introducing new attack surfaces and potential security concerns. As noted in the report, not unlike non-containerized applications, containers need to be secured throughout their entire lifecycle – development to deployment to runtime (that’s where we fit in – runtime container security).
These phases and the disparate vendors that secure them cause a lot of confusion in the marketplace. There are a large number of vendors in this space, certainly more than just Capsule8 and Anchore. Capsule8’s VP of Product Management and Product Strategy, takes a stab at clearing it up in her blog post, “Container Security – Nobody Knows What It Means But It’s Provocative” if you’re interested in learning more about the container security market landscape.
