Suresh Vasudevan, CEO at Sysdig, authored a blog post with more information on Sysdig's funding.
Sysdig offers enterprises the first unified approach to container security, monitoring, and forensics. Unlike traditional approaches, the Sysdig Cloud-Native Intelligence Platform 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, Sysdig Falco, 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 Sysdig Secure 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 vulnerability management, more than 200 compliance checks, and security analytics 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 Suresh Vasudevan as CEO in April and Larry Castro as VP of finance and corporate operations 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.
Sysdig is the cloud-native intelligence company.
We have created the only unified platform to deliver container security, monitoring, and forensics in a microservices-friendly architecture. Our open source technologies have attracted a community of over a million developers, administrators and other IT professionals looking for deep visibility into applications and containers. Our cloud-native intelligence platform monitors and secures millions of containers across hundreds of enterprises, including Fortune 500 companies and web-scale properties.

GSMA Welcomes Germany’s 5G Spectrum Award, but Cautions against Unnecessary Conditions15.11.2018 11:00 | Tiedote
The GSMA today welcomed the German government’s decision to release the entire 3.4 to 3.8 GHz band (C-Band), essential for the future development of 5G services globally. Making available all of the spectrum in this critical band for 5G, in a timely manner, shows Germany’s commitment to European and global 5G leadership. However, the GSMA warns that some of the currently proposed conditions on the allocation of these vital frequencies may slow Germany’s 5G future. Ultra-fast 5G networks will form the foundation of the world’s digital economy, supporting a wide variety of industry sectors. Imposing unnecessary conditions that limit mobile operators’ ability and potential to deliver 5G creates a risk for all, industries and citizens alike. “The C-Band is the most vital frequency band for 5G. Germany is demonstrating 5G leadership in the timely release of this vital spectrum, but risks undercutting its 5G future with unnecessary obligations,” said Mats Granryd, Director General, GSMA. “Sp
Entersekt Sets Sights on the Nordics15.11.2018 11:00 | Tiedote
Entersekt, an innovator in mobile-first fintech solutions, today announced its entry into the competitive Nordic market. The identity and payments enablement provider serves banks and other enterprises operating in 45 countries. Entersekt’s interest in Scandinavia derives from its openness to digital banking and payments innovation. Digitization may be transforming business in every corner of the world, but few regions have experienced the wholesale change in consumer payments behaviour that the Nordics have. While governments, central banks, and the banking industry as a whole have pushed a cashless agenda for several years now, many point to Nordic consumers’ enthusiastic adoption of cashless transacting as the true driver behind the boom in digital payments. Consumers in the region have never been hidebound to payments innovation, as smart card penetration rates demonstrated years ago. Payments-ready smartphones are, of course, everywhere and the retail NFC infrastructure is superb.
