#RSAC: Innovation Sandbox 2019 Winner Crowned


Next up was Capsule 8, and presenting was co-founder and CEO John Viega. Very much taking the hacker style with a technology described as “built by black hats for black hats,” he said that a “horrible job” has been done in protecting Linux and as a result, operations are “drowning in data” and investing in automation “doesn’t fix the problem of fixing data source.”

He said that Capsule 8 is about “improving data quality and preventing attacks, depending on where it is” and the mission is to bring operations and security together “in harmony” with a single, safe attack protection solution for Linux.

John was fast out of the box here, with a strongly delivered message around the concept of what is wrong and how it is being fixed.
