Company expands SaaS offering, while adding stringent data protection and compliance
Customers are able to choose where their data is stored
SAN FRANCISCO – June 9, 2020 — Sysdig, Inc., the secure DevOps leader, today announced new data center options in Frankfurt, Germany and on the west coast of the United States, in Oregon, to satisfy growing demand for the Sysdig Secure DevOps Platform. The expansion of Sysdig services to additional hosting locations prepares Sysdig for the next stage of growth. The two data centers strengthen data protection standards by adding encryption at rest.
