“I tend to maintain an overwhelming sense that the majority of security products exist ‘just because’ – ‘just because’ the underlying technology seemed cool to build, ‘just because’ it is what has always been used despite minimal results, ‘just because’ investors would throw money towards it,” says Kelly Shortridge, VP of Product Strategy at Capsule8, who sees herself as someone who works to create calmer waters for infosec practitioners.
