The 13 cell tower acquisitions included both individual and portfolio transactions with towers located throughout Missouri, Wisconsin, Florida, Tennessee, and New York. Primary tenants on the towers include the three major broadband carriers, AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile, as well as Dish, Wisconsin Electric Power Company, Wisconsin Power & Light, and an AT&T affiliate that supports AT&T’s First Net Network, which is dedicated to first responders (police, fire, rescue, etc.). Todd Rowley, head of StratCap’s Wireless Infrastructure Platform stated, “The ongoing deployment of 5G networks and continuous increases in mobile data usage are catalyzing both growth and investor appetite in what we believe is a very resilient sector.”
The Company also acquired a 127,000 square foot data center in Toronto, Canada. The facility boasts two premier credit-rated tenants, ready access to rich fiber connectivity and 10MVA of installed critical capacity, with plans to increase to 27MVA. The acquisition was part of an institutional joint venture wherein StratCap took a minority stake in the property, yet led the acquisition process and will continue to manage the overall facility.

Ermetic, a leading cloud infrastructure security company, today announced CNAPPgoat, an open source project that allows organizations to safely test their cloud security skills, processes, tools and posture in interactive sandbox environments that are easy to deploy and destroy. CNAPPgoat supports AWS, Azure and GCP platforms for assessing the security capabilities included in Cloud Native Application Protection Platforms (CNAPP).
The CNAPPgoat project will be officially presented at DEF CON Demo Labs in Las Vegas on Friday, August 11 from 12:00pm-1:55pm by Noam Dahan, Research Lead and Igal Gofman, Head of Research for Ermetic. On Wednesday, August 16 at 10am PST/1pm EST, Ermetic will present a webinar on using CNAPPgoat, to register visit thislink.
Unlike projects that illustrate possible attack paths, CNAPPgoat provides a large and expanding library of scenarios that security teams can execute to create a customized cloud environment for simulating unsecured and vulnerable assets and validating their defenses. The ability to easily provision a vulnerable environment with a broad range of risk scenarios provides the following benefits:
Create a sandbox for testing an organization’s security posture by assessing security team capabilities, procedures and protocols
Use vulnerable environments for hands-on workshops to train team members on new skills and techniques
Provision a “shooting range” for pentesters to test their skills at exploiting the scenarios and developing relevant capabilities
Benchmark CNAPP tools against known environments to evaluate their capabilities
“Compared to existing open-source projects that create ‘capture the flag’ scenarios where participants are expected to follow a certain path, CNAPPgoat spans the leading cloud provider platforms and CNAPP capabilities while providing a modular and granular approach for provisioning specific categories of risks and vulnerabilities,” said Igal Gofman, Director of Research for Ermetic.
“This breadth and depth allows pentesters and defenders to precisely isolate the elements they want to explore for training, new skills acquisition, prevention and security posture assessments,” added Noam Dahan, Research Lead.
CNAPPgoat enables security teams, trainers and pentesters to provision and run vulnerable scenarios from the following modules that make up the CNAPP specification defined byGartner:
Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM) - covers risks associated with identities and entitlements, such as the unintended ability of an identity to escalate its privileges
Cloud Workload Protection Platform (CWPP) - includes the exposure of workloads to vulnerabilities such as running vulnerable/end of life software or OS versions
Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) - spans the misconfiguration of cloud infrastructure components, such as publicly exposed storage resources
Infrastructure as Code (IaC) scanning - will be added soon for finding misconfigurations directly in the code
CNAPPgoat is an open community initiative designed to be used by anyone for commercial, technical and educational purposes. See today’sblogfor implementation details. Additional artifacts including deeper technical dives and guides will be released soon. Contributions are encouraged including new scenarios, scenario proposals, issues, suggestions, feature requests or simply sharing feedback. To learn more and access CNAPPgoat visit thislink.
Ermetic reveals and prioritizes security gaps in AWS, Azure and GCP and enables organizations to remediate them immediately. The Ermetic cloud native application protection platform (CNAPP) uses an identity-first approach to unify and automate cloud infrastructure entitlement management (CIEM), cloud security posture management (CSPM), cloud workload protection and Kubernetes security posture management (KSPM). It unifies full asset discovery, deep risk analysis, runtime threat detection and compliance reporting, combined with pinpoint visualization and step-by-step guidance. The company is one of America’s Best Startup Employers according toForbesand led by proven technology entrepreneurs whose previous companies have been acquired by Microsoft, Palo Alto Networks and others. Ermetic has received funding from Accel, Forgepoint, Glilot Capital Partners, Norwest Venture Partners, Qumra Capital and Target Global.
