“Our goal is to bring a full software layer down to the lowest edge layer possible and to make building for the edge as easy as building for the cloud,” says CEO Kilton Hopkins.
The move provides enterprises that are overwhelmed by available options with the choice of tested, open source tools that can be used to construct cloud-native-based applications.
The Falco project, donated by Sysdig, taps into the Linux kernel to provide runtime security at the application, file, system, and network levels.
