, the cloud-native intelligence company, today announced Apurva

Why Sysdig?

Last quarter, Sysdig released the 2018
Docker Usage Report
, a comparison of how a broad cross-section of
vertical industries and companies have been adopting and using Docker in
their environments over the previous 12 months. It found that 95% of
containers live less than a week. Containers are easily
deployable, good for repeatability, and enable systems to be designed to
scale with demand, because they live only as long as they add value. The
ability to develop faster is also driving increased container adoption.
The report found that there has been a 50% increase in container
density, signifying containers are providing more value and an increase
in container utilization.

Hundreds of enterprises have come to depend on Sysdig to secure and
monitor millions of containers and microservices in production, while
millions more rely on Sysdig open source security and troubleshooting
tools. Dozens of enterprises with $1 billion or more in revenue are
Sysdig customers today. That includes two of the largest cable companies
in North America, multiple top 10 global governments, and a top five
global investment bank. Davé has been with Sysdig for more than three
years, and he has supported the growth firsthand.

"It has been rewarding to help drive this transformation towards
cloud-native environments as the foundation for modern applications,"
said Davé. "Since day one, I saw how Sysdig enables enterprises to
leverage the benefits of containers and the cloud without the risk that
comes with new technology or the cost of legacy approaches. Between the
technology and our exceptional team, I'm confident Sysdig will continue
its phenomenal growth and I'm excited to be a part of this fundamental
shift in how applications are developed and delivered."
