Sysdig Partners with In-Q-Tel to Provide Unified Visibility and Security Platform to U.S. Government Agencies

Sponsored by Businesswire

Sysdig, Inc., the cloud-native visibility and security company,
today announced a strategic partnership with In-Q-Tel, Inc. (IQT), the
not-for-profit strategic investor that identifies and accelerates the
development of cutting-edge technologies to support the missions of U.S.
government agencies. Together Sysdig and IQT will provide U.S.
government agencies with the Sysdig
Cloud-Native Visibility and Security Platform (VSP)
, giving agencies
insight and control as they transition to modern IT architectures,
including Kubernetes, containers, and multi-cloud deployments.

The need for speed and agility is driving changes in IT infrastructure,
most notably the shift to cloud-native architectures and the adoption of
rapid DevOps-style development programs. The move to multi-cloud and
containers comes with tremendous opportunity but also introduces
complexity and risk. Since its founding in 2013, Sysdig has focused on
providing an innovative new approach to visibility and security for
containers and microservices in the cloud. The company already monitors
and secures tens of millions of containers across hundreds of
enterprises, and with IQT will lend this expertise to more government
agencies. This unprecedented level of visibility into cloud-native
infrastructure will help agencies accelerate modernization, improve the
health and risk posture of their environments, reduce the cost of
operations, detect vulnerabilities, and prevent attacks.

“Sysdig is honored to work with IQT to help our government agencies
minimize operational complexity and risk by uncovering blind spots in
cloud-native applications,” said Suresh Vasudevan, Chief Executive
Officer at Sysdig. “We are already working with U.S. federal and local
governments, along with international government agencies, and we will
continue to provide innovative solutions through our partnership with

“With the Sysdig Visibility and Security Platform, our government
partners will gain insight and control as they move to adopt modern,
cloud-native approaches,” said Luke Berndt, Senior Member, Technical
Staff, IQT. “Sysdig’s cutting-edge solutions will give our agencies the
ability to identify vulnerabilities, enforce compliance, and monitor
application and service performance.”

The Sysdig Visibility and Security Platform

Sysdig pioneered the industry’s first platform that unifies cloud-native
visibility and security, enabling organizations to operate reliable and
secure containerized cloud-native applications. The Sysdig approach
starts from a completely new way to instrument and collect granular data
in real-time and an innovative approach to enriching data with the
extensive and rich context that is needed in the cloud-native world.
This is delivered through a massively scalable data engine, upon which,
Sysdig delivers applications and workflows for securing, monitoring, and
troubleshooting cloud-native applications.

Sysdig’s approach starts with an open source core: leveraging well-known
Cloud Native Computing Foundation® projects such as Falco and
Prometheus, combined with Sysdig’s original eponymous project, the
platform provides open source with enterprise management, security, and

Sysdig provides organizations with the context needed to understand if
their microservices are running reliably and securely. Each team
involved in operating the services — service owners, DevOps, and
security teams — previously relied on their own set of isolated tools to
get a narrow view of their environment. With the latest Sysdig
visibility and security platform, these issues are eliminated with a
single, comprehensive view of the enterprise environment which provides
risk, health, and performance data across thousands of clusters for many
thousands of microservices.
