IDS for Cloud Workloads

Host-based Intrusion Detection Purpose-built for Cloud Environments

Intrusion detection (IDS) for your cloud infrastructure doesn’t need to come with massive overhead and false positives delivered by traditional Windows IDS products.​

Unlike existing solutions, Capsule8 is specifically built to protect enterprise Linux systems instead of only box-checking OS support by porting Windows intrusion prevention systems to Linux.

Your organization needs to keep its enterprise infrastructure safe, without you needing a team of experts in Linux, cloud computing, or containers. Capsule8’s team has decades of experience in exploiting the Linux kernel and attacking Linux-based systems, including backdoors, kernel vulnerabilities, container escapes and more. As a result, we deeply understand what you need to detect to keep your enterprise systems safe.

Monitoring, Detection and Protection for Production Linux

Capsule8 is for organizations who need flexible production infrastructure security that embeds seamlessly into Linux systems. The pioneer behind “ops-friendly” production security, Capsule8 delivers monitoring, detection and protection across cloud native and on prem private cloud environments. By using Capsule8, security teams have the visibility needed to help them detect incidents, and investigate and protect against unwanted behavior, without adding operational risk or cost.

Secure your Linux systems with detection and protection against:

Disabling of native Linux security mechanisms (like SELinux)
Container attacks and escapes
Remote, interactive shell sessions

Avoid Costly Incidents - Performant, Scalable Protection

The growth of Linux environments utilized for commercial organizations is rapid, especially as more workloads are migrated to the cloud. Many businesses are vulnerable to attackers who target these Linux systems with tactics built specifically for them.

Capsule8 is built to protect enterprise infrastructure against these Linux-aimed attacks, from cloud-native to on-prem data center environments and everything in between. Capsule8 Protect Platform enables security and operations teams to efficiently defend their Linux infrastructure.

Capsule8 helps you prevent, detect, and automatically respond to unwanted activity on Linux systems. Using kprobes and perf to collect system telemetry via distributed agents, Capsule8 supports speed, stability, and scalability, unlike traditional endpoint protection solutions.

Modern enterprise security means protection that even your operations team approves. Our Ops-friendly architecture preserves system uptime, availability, and reliability by enabling resource limits (including CPU and network) and running without a kernel module.
