Anchore this week announced it has received an additional $20 million in funding as the battle for container security supremacy intensifies in 2020.Startups such as Anchore are finding themselves competing with much larger rivals such as Palo Alto Networks and McAfee, which have extended their existing portfolios either organically or by acquiring startups such as Twistlock, in the case of Palo Alto Networks, or NanoSec, in the case of McAfee. Anchore CEO Saïd Ziouani says as responsibility for DevSecOps continues to shift left toward developers, there is a need for a comprehensive container security platform designed to run natively on Kubernetes from the ground up. In contrast, offerings from rivals are designed to secure containers rather than the entire Kubernetes environment, says Ziouani.

Cisco and Microsoft partner on cloud IoT stuff

Article | February 10, 2020

The move was announced in a Microsoft blog, which somehow resisted the urge to use the term ‘end-to-end’ a lot. The thinking is that Microsoft’s Azure IoT platform is great at the datacenter end of things and Cisco is pretty hot at the edge. Industries increasingly want a bit of both from their IoT so this partnership has been created to provide that.Using software-based intelligence pre-loaded onto Cisco IoT network devices, telemetry data pipelines from industry-standard protocols like OPC-Unified Architecture (OPC-UA) and Modbus can be easily established using a friendly UI directly into Azure IoT Hub,” explains the blog, “Additional telemetry processing is also supported by Cisco through local scripts developed in Microsoft Visual Studio, where filtered data can also be uploaded directly into Azure IoT Hub. This collaboration provides customers with a fully integrated solution that will give access to powerful design tools, global connectivity, advance analytics, and cognitive services for analyzing IoT data.
