Howdy Partners – Capsule8 Launches a New Partner Program

February 4, 2021

Today is a big day at Capsule8 as we expand our inner circle and extend our reach with the newly launched Capitalize program. 

Rolling out nationally and beginning with more than 10 carefully-selected VARs and integration partners, including Gotham Technologies, Fortifire, and SideChannel, we’re working hard to create a frictionless experience so that our Partners may quickly address the needs of their clients facing Linux security gaps.

The Capsule8 Protect solutions suite – Protect, Protect + and Complete – incorporates enhanced detections as well as both SaaS and on-premise delivery options, making Linux production protection more accessible to the market without needing deep in-house expertise into Linux, cloud or container threat models. Partner resellers will now be able to deliver Protect to customers, rapidly deploy the solutions and efficiently protect their cloud workloads with monitoring, detection, and response in any environment. And many partners are already seeing immediate results: 

  • “For a key client, Capsule8 has allowed us to replace unsupported open-source tools with a fully-supported, Linux-specific solution backed by a team with deep expertise in Linux exploitations. It’s designed with containerization and modern infrastructure in mind and will work well with our long-term infrastructure strategy,” said Brian Haugli, managing partner, SideChannel. “The team has been responsive and agile and responded well during the testing and integration process. They feel like a meaningful addition to our vCISO delivery and client’s team.”
  • “Capsule8 uniquely delivers modern Linux security by using kprobes and perf from userland, rather than the typical kernel-based agent architectures. Customers love it in conjunction with the other security products,” said Shaq Khan, founder and CEO, Fortifire. 
  • “Capsule8 is a pioneer in Linux security with proven technology that stands alone in the market,” said Ken Phelan, CTO at Gotham Technology Group. “Through this partner program, we are eager to unlock new business opportunities, seamlessly increase our sales margins, and most importantly, provide our customers with critical security protections that are effective for Linux without introducing any friction or risk.” 

It was important to us to remove the operational burden from partners and their customers throughout the entire lifecycle. From installation to deployment to management, Capsule8 Protect is not only easy to scale, but also presents all security information in an intuitive manner through an interactive console. The partner program will be customized to meet the needs of each individual firm to deliver instant value to security and operations teams, echoing the company’s commitment to secure production Linux environments for businesses of all sizes, in all industries.
