Sysdig offers enterprises the first unified approach to container

security, monitoring, and forensics. Unlike traditional approaches, the


was built with an understanding

of the modern DevSecOps workflow across Kubernetes, Docker and both

private and public clouds. Sysdig’s open source forensics technology, Sysdig ,

and its open source security project,


, have a community of millions of users, and provide the

foundation for a rich, commercial product set. Dozens of Global 2000

enterprises are Sysdig customers today, including many of the world’s

largest financial institutions, media companies, cable companies,

technology companies, and government agencies.

451 Research predicts the cloud-enabling technology market to grow to

$39.6B through 2020, and containers are predicted to be the fastest

growing segment of that market at 40%. Gartner predicts that “by 2020,

more than 50% of global organizations will be running containerized

applications in production, up from less than 20% today.” 1

“As enterprises accelerate their move to cloud-native applications, they

recognize the need for a new breed of solutions that will enable them to

meet performance, reliability, security, and compliance requirements,”

said Richard Wells, Managing Director at Insight Venture Partners.

“Sysdig’s novel approach of tapping an entirely new data source that

provides both security and monitoring for container-based applications

has proven more effective, more scalable, and higher ROI. That

significant technological advantage combined with an experienced

management team led by CEO Suresh Vasudevan gives Sysdig a strong

position in the marketplace and we are excited to welcome them to the

Insight portfolio.”

Sysdig launched


in October of 2017, cementing the Sysdig Cloud-Native

Intelligence Platform as the only solution to offer unified security,

monitoring, and forensics with native Kubernetes and Prometheus

integration for containers and microservices. Last quarter, Sysdig

expanded on the deep container visibility Sysdig provides to create

Sysdig Secure 2.0, which brings


to cloud-native environments and microservices for enterprise customers.

Sysdig Secure is the first container security offering to take a

data-driven approach across all aspects of the container lifecycle.

“Enterprises are adopting cloud-native technology for its speed of

development, multi-cloud scaling capabilities, and lower total cost of

ownership,” said Suresh Vasudevan, CEO at Sysdig. “But, they are hitting

roadblocks with old school security and monitoring products. To be

successful, these organizations need new solutions that are

cloud-native. Sysdig has emerged as the only solution that delivers

enterprises the complete set of capabilities needed to protect an

environment, ensure that it is running smoothly, and meet compliance

requirements. Sysdig delivers it all, both in the cloud and on-premise,

in order to grow with companies as they undertake this journey.”

This round of funding further accelerates the strong momentum and rapid

growth Sysdig has experienced over the last year. Downloads of Sysdig

Falco have roughly tripled over the last 12 months and active users of

the Sysdig SaaS offerings have grown nearly six times year over year.

Last month, Sysdig opened a second headquarters in Raleigh, North

Carolina to keep up with company growth while the company also continues

to scale its offices in San Francisco, Belgrade, and London.

In addition to its global growth, Sysdig has expanded its executive team

with the hiring of


in April and


last month. Sysdig

continues to deliver on its commitment to leading the industry by

collaborating with the Cloud-Native Computing Foundation, the PCI

Security Council, and industry partners and by contributing to the

development of security recommendations for modern infrastructure.
