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.
