Sysdig today announced that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Security Competency status. This crucial designation recognizes the value provided by the Sysdig Secure DevOps Platform to AWS customers to achieve their container and cloud security goals. As a key partner for the ecosystem, Sysdig collaborates closely with AWS and its customers to enhance the protection of cloud infrastructure and applications against continuously evolving security threats.
What is the AWS Competency Program?
AWS started the AWS Competency Program to identify its best Technology Partners that follow AWS best practices in addition to the industry benchmarks for helping its customers. By being one of the few platforms achieving the Security Competency in the AWS Partner Network (APN), Sysdig has demonstrated its commitment to AWS by building a well-architected and deeply integrated security solution that has been customized for the best interests of AWS customers.
Note that Sysdig already has achieved AWS competency statuses for DevOps and Containers in the past. Sysdig has proven these competencies by:
- Working with AWS on rigorous APN competency qualification processes
- Demonstrating AWS business history
- Validating multiple customer references
AWS Customers of various sizes from startups to enterprises have thus successfully leveraged the Sysdig Secure DevOps Platform for these said competencies.
To quote Knox Anderson, Vice President of Product at Sysdig –
“This validation from AWS recognizes the Sysdig Secure DevOps platform as a value-added security solution that can protect organizations from malicious attacks, detect breaches, and remediate issues on AWS while providing complete visibility across cloud assets.”
What does it mean for customers?
Selecting a cloud security solution means evaluating and balancing multiple decision criteria not limited to the following:
- Budget and pricing
- Needs to features fit
- Time to value
- Buy-in from various teams including Cloud Infrastructure, Governance and Compliance, Incident response, Applications, and Security
Sysdig, besides being vouched by AWS as a security partner, has got these criteria already figured out for our customers and prospects.
The Sysdig Secure DevOps Platform provides security built on an open-source stack that includes Falco and Cloud Custodian, open standards for runtime threat detection, cloud compliance, and response. At Sysdig, we provide deep visibility to run apps confidently on Amazon Web Services, including Amazon EKS, Amazon ECS, and AWS Fargate.
