Diagram of how Rancher Labs' Longhorn project works

Rancher Labs has announced that the CNCF has accepted its Longhorn project into the CNCF Sandbox. Longhorn is a container storage solution that helps teams manage stateful workloads in Kubernetes.

Longhorn is currently on version 0.6.2 and its key capabilities include enterprise-grade distributed block storage, volume snapshots, built-in backup and restore, live upgrades that don’t impact running volumes, cross-cluster disaster recovery, one-click installation, and an intuitive user interface.

“Storage is an important area of the Cloud Native landscape, so I’m delighted that Rancher are contributing Longhorn to the CNCF,” said Liz Rice, CNCF TOC Chair. “By becoming a CNCF Sandbox project, Longhorn can help the open source community accelerate the maturity of persistent block storage solutions for Kubernetes.”

SentinelOne granted patent for automated malware detection and remediation technology
Endpoint protection company SentinelOne has secured a new patent for its automated malware detection and remediation technology. The patent is titled “Method of Remediating Operations Performed by a Program and System Thereof.”

This is the second patent the company has received, the first of which was granted in October 2018.

“SentinelOne’s remediation continuation patent decisively validates the innovative and superior approach we take in delivering combined EPP and EDR technology,” said Tomer Weingarten, CEO and Co-founder, SentinelOne. “In addition to best-in-class prevention capabilities, automating manual, time consuming EDR functions is essential to providing security operations with the tools required to negate the widely acknowledged skill and staffing shortage today’s SOC teams face. SentinelOne remains steadfast in leading the convergence of EPP and EDR as well as automating machine speed enterprise risk mitigation.”
