Capsule8 Raises New Funds to Help Improve Container Security

Container security startup Capsule8 is moving forward with beta customer deployments and a Series A round of funding, to help achieve its vision of providing a secure, production-grade approach to container security.

The Series A round of funding was announced on Sept. 19, with the company raising $6 million, led by Bessemer and ClearSky, bringing total funding to date up to $8.5 million. Capsule8 first emerged from stealth in February 2017, though its’ core technology product still remains in private beta as the company fine-tunes the platform for production workload requirements.

In a video interview with eWEEK, Dino Dai Zovi, co-founder and CTO of Capsule8 said that most organizations first consider stability and performance in any application, before looking at security.
