Sysdig, Inc., a cloud-native intelligence company, announced that Sysdig Secure and Sysdig Monitor are a part of the newly launched AWS Marketplace for Containers, which was just announced by Amazon Web Services, Inc. at AWS re:Invent 2018. Sysdig is also one of the first companies to achieve AWS Container Competency status, and for enterprise customers, Sysdig is now a member of the Enterprise Contract for AWS Marketplace Program.
“We are happy to welcome Sysdig to the new AWS Marketplace for Containers, which will help over 200,000 AWS customers find, buy, and deploy solutions specific to their container environment,” said Garth Fort, Director, AWS Marketplace, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “I’d also like to congratulate Sysdig for achieving AWS Partner Network (APN) Container Competency status.”
What Sysdig Offers AWS Customers
The complexity of modern cloud architectures involves many moving parts, including containers and orchestrators like Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) and Kubernetes. With containerization on the rise, there is a real need for purpose-built solutions at every level of the stack.
Sysdig leverages metadata from Amazon ECS, Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS), and containers running on top of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) in order to provide more meaningful security enforcement, compliance, and monitoring. By extracting rich data using its unique ContainerVision technology, Sysdig gives enterprises the power to solve security issues within the containerized environment and ensure reliability. Sysdig uses a single point of instrumentation to unify security and monitoring, which saves enterprises time, effort, and money.
The Sysdig Cloud-Native Intelligence Platform, the platform on top of which both Sysdig Secure and Sysdig Monitor run, is purpose-built to protect cloud-native environments, ensure they are running smoothly, and meet compliance requirements. Sysdig enables enterprises to gain full visibility into their environment at the container, host, and application level. Both products are available on AWS Marketplace for Containers.
“Ebates has grown into one of the largest, free cash back loyalty program in the U.S.,” said Amit Patel, Chief Executive Officer, Ebates. “Both Sysdig and AWS play a critical role in how we deliver a scalable, secure, and reliable service to our members. Sysdig helps us monitor our containers on AWS and provides far more data about our application environment than we would get with other approaches. It’s great to see two of our key solution providers continue to advance their relationship.”
The Sysdig and AWS relationship has rapidly accelerated. This announcement comes on the heels of Sysdig announcing that they became an APN Advanced Technology Partner last month and were listed on AWS Marketplace earlier this month.
