Intel Joins ClearSky Security, Bessemer Venture Partners in Capsule8 Investment

Capsule8 today announced a multimillion-dollar investment from Intel Capital. The rapidly growing company will apply the funds to drive a range of sales, marketing, product development and customer-facing initiatives. Intel joins existing investors ClearSky Security, Bessemer Venture Partners and other strategic investors, bringing the total funds raised by Capsule8 to $30 million.

Capsule8 delivers high-performance attack protection for Linux production environments – whether containerized, virtualized or bare metal, deployed on-premises or in the cloud. Safe for the busiest workloads in the largest clusters, the company’s flagship platform, Capsule8 Protect, replaces multiple legacy controls with a single solution that detects and prevents exploits in real-time – while preserving the performance and reliability of production infrastructures. Scalable and cloud-agnostic, Capsule8 Protect features an “API-first” architecture for seamless technology integration, enabling enterprises to capitalize on existing investments.

“Joining the Intel Capital portfolio, as well as the confidence they’ve shown in our team and our market, is a huge boost for us,” said Capsule8 Co-founder and CEO John Viega. “We’ve seen incredible momentum so far this year and have no doubt this latest investment is going to help fuel Capsule8’s evolution.”

“Containers and cloud-native security offerings solve a critical piece of the enterprise protection puzzle,” said Intel Capital Managing Director Sunil Kurkure. “While other vendors address pieces of the problem, Capsule8 addresses the urgent need organizations have for security across their entire production infrastructures.”
