Your Trusted Kubernetes Security Advisor
Alcide is the lesser-known name of Hercules, the gatekeeper of Olympus. The Greek hero keeps a constant and watchful eye over Mount Olympus — from its base to its summit — in search of intruders. Inspired by our namesake, Alcide is the gatekeeper to your cloud-native risks and operations.
Our mission is to become a trusted advisor to our clients. We saw that companies’ use of their cloud-native deployments was evolving at such a rapid pace, and that security was having a hard time keeping up with that evolution.
We created Alcide to fill the gap between DevOps and Security teams so that there could be a more seamless flow between all stakeholders.
We speak the language of DevOps, with real-time visibility of operations, and the language of Security, with deep analysis and control to manage complex Kubernetes deployments. To truly secure cloud-native environments, we created a new kind of solution. One designed specifically for complex Kubernetes environments, and one that works for all the stakeholders who operate and protect in this new era.
