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.

175 Million Europeans Have Sleep Apnoea, Highlighting Scale of Global Health Crisis18.9.2018 13:05 | Pressemelding
Roughly 175 million Europeans have obstructive sleep apnoea, according to a late-breaking abstract presented by ResMed today at the European Respiratory Society’s annual ERS Congress in Paris. Leading researchers estimate 90 million Europeans have moderate to severe sleep apnoea, meaning they experience at least 15 breathing events an hour during sleep. These statistics are based on the latest scoring rules for determining one’s apnoea–hypopnoea index (AASM 2012) and are connected with a 16-country study announced in May 2018 that revealed an estimated 936 million people worldwide have sleep apnoea, a chronic sleep-disordered breathing condition associated with increased risk of mortality and reduced quality of life. The new global prevalence is nearly tenfold higher than the previous one – 100 million – estimated by the World Health Organization in 2007. European countries with the highest prevalence are: Russia, 40 million Germany, 26 million France, 24 million Ukraine, 13 million Sp

SIA Has Provided the New Real-Time Gross Settlement System in Denmark18.9.2018 13:00 | Pressemelding
SIA, European hi-tech company, leader in payment infrastructures and services, has further strengthened its positioning in the Nordic countries, by providing Danmarks Nationalbank with the new real-time gross settlement system (RTGS) that connects banks, mortgage banks and settlement systems. This RTGS platform is already in operation by the central banks of Norway and Sweden and it will soon go live in Iceland too. The up-to-date technology infrastructure developed by SIA has replaced the previous in-house system that has been in use by the Central Bank of Denmark since 2001. The new RTGS system, that secures safe and real-time transfer of Danish kroner, ensures continued efficiency, operational reliability, functional sophistication and simpler maintenance of the system. In this initiative, SIA has used its wholly-owned subsidiary Perago, based in Pretoria (South Africa) and specialized in central bank solutions.
