I don’t have to remind anyone of the importance of security and threat detection when it comes to protecting your critical systems, applications and the data being created. For the most part i’ve spent my time in IT worrying about the design and implementation fo end user platforms and data protection, and have always feared an attack from the inside. So, what if you are able to turn the tables on malicious actors and be a couple steps ahead of them as they are in their discovery stage… effectively spying on the cyber criminals and catching them in the act. That is what SpyderBat is all about. SpyderBat was founded to address the lack of good security solutions for Linux workloads in the cloud, where “the crown jewels” are often stored.
One of the main challenges we have in the ongoing issue of playing offence to protect our platforms and systems in dealing with the lack of visibility into environments, this can make it difficult to detect and respond to threats. Spyderbat is a company that was founded in 2019 with the goal of providing a platform for threat prevention and security operations in the rapidly changing cloud world. The company aims to provide early and accurate metrics and visualizations through the recognition of attacks, giving companies an unprecedented level of intrusion prevention and mitigation. They company focuses on securing Linux workloads in the cloud and Kubernetes environments, as there is a lack of good security solutions in those areas.
In episode 55 of Great Things with Great Tech, I talk with Brian Smith, co-founder and CTO at SpyderBat. Founded in 2019, SpiderBat recognized that the manual process of traditional security operations was ineffective in the rapidly changing cloud world. The company has created a platform that provides early and accurate metrics and visualizations through the recognition of attacks, giving companies an unprecedented level of intrusion prevention and mitigation.
SpiderBat has developed a platform that uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to analyze cloud environments and identify potential threats. It also provides real-time monitoring and alerting, as well as a visual dashboard for easier analysis.
Talking Real-time Threat Analysis and Alerting with Brian Smith:
In this episode I talk with Brian Smith, Co-Found and CTO at SpyderBat. Spyderbat delivers cloud native runtime security to customers with unprecedented precision in intrusion prevention and mitigation. They secure Linux VMs and Kubernetes clusters at runtime and block attacks against cloud native workloads. They are making threat prevention and security operation automation available with their SaaS platform and UI through the use of Nano Agents leveraging eBPF for early, accurate, and thorough recognition of attacks. Brian and I talk about how SpyderBat is flipping the tables in the cyber security war by proactively reporting on suspicious activity… effectively spying on the bad guys and catching them unawares. SpyderBat was founded in 2019 and is head quartered out of Austin Texas.
