Capsule8: Why IDS is Ineffective for Linux Production Environments


Capsule8: Attack Detection for Modern Linux Infrastructure

Intrusion detection systems (IDS) play a core role in ensuring fundamental cyber monitoring capabilities are in place. While IDS plays a key role in a defence strategy, the technology – most often delivered via a hardware appliance – faces additional challenges in the context of production infrastructure.

In this whitepaper, Capsule8 outlines the challenges of IDS effectiveness for Linux production environments. Furthermore, they explain their real-time, zero-day exploit detection platform purpose-built for Linux production environments. As a result, Capsule8 massively reduces security operations' workload by automatically detecting and shutting down exploits as they're happening.
