From TechCrunch - November 21, 2017

If every company is truly a software company, Capital One is out to the prove it. It was one of the early users of Critical Stack, a tool designed to help build security into the container orchestration process. In fact, it liked it so much it bought the company in 2016, and today its releasing Critical Stack in Beta.
