Sysdig Unifies Security and Monitoring for Containers, Microservices
Ali Longwell | April 10, 2019
Sysdig this week released version 2.0 of its cloud-native security and visibility platform. The update unifies the aspects of its platform for a more complete view of the health, performance, and risk levels of an enterprises’ cloud-native applications. “It starts with a simple fact — data is data. Why silo data as ‘security data’ or ‘performance data’ when you can bring all of it to bear on any given problem?” said Suresh Vasudevan, CEO Of Sysdig. “We knew that if we could unlock all of this data sitting in different silos, trapped in different tools, we could allow these incredibly smart DevOps and DevSecOps teams to be 10 times more effective.” With the upgrade Sysdig claims customers can migrate to cloud native three times faster, increase DevOps efficiency by 67%, and improve risk mitigation by up to 95%. This version is an evolution of Sysdig Monitor platform, launched in 2015, and Sysdig Secure, launched in 2017. Sysdig has added an overview application which, Vasudevan says, provides contextual information so that end-users can obtain the information required to get a full picture of their cloud-native applications. This includes performance metrics, compliance dashboards, and security forensics.
