Protecting the world’s Linux production systems together.

The Capsule8 team is comprised of savvy business leaders and security industry experts, bringing years of experience together to create security solutions that help build resilient businesses.


The Capsule8 team brings together top talent in security, Linux, and enterprise software from such companies as BAE, RSA, McAfee and others to provide modern enterprises with scalable Linux workload protection. We don't have fancy headshots (well most of us) and our zoom meetings are often interrupted by our children, pets and even neighbors. There are too many differences in our interests to list, but we have one common mission: to protect the world’s production systems without impacting performance.
