Cloud teams can embed security, maximize availability, and validate compliance using a single source of truth across development, DevOps, and security teams. The Sysdig platform is open by design, with the scale, performance, and usability enterprises demand. With Sysdig’s context-based monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities, Japanese organizations across industries are able to deliver the performance and availability their users expect.
“The Sysdig Platform is the leading ”Secure DevOps Platform” on the market based on its proven success with customers. Given that Japanese companies have a history of operationalizing innovative new technologies, we are happy to see a growing demand for Sysdig’s product with Red Hat OpenShift across many industries in Japan,” said Noboru Kohno, Corporate Officer of IT Engineering Division at SCSK Corporation.
