Sysdig Expands Presence in India with Launch of the First Real-Time Cloud Security SaaS Platform

JULY 11, 2024


With the country’s cloud market set to reach $20.3 billion in 2027, Sysdig is the first modern cloud security company to enable data sovereignty for millions of Indian businesses transitioning to the cloud

BANGALORE, KARNATAKA, INDIA – July 11, 2024 – Sysdig, the leader in real-time cloud security, today announced the expansion of its cloud-native security platform with a new software-as-a-service (SaaS) region in India. Sysdig is expanding the SaaS version of its cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) to the Indian subcontinent in response to growing customer demand and the region’s rapidly expanding cloud economy.

Several marquee customers, from prominent government agencies to the subcontinent’s largest banks, currently rely on Sysdig for end-to-end cloud security. By launching a new public cloud-based SaaS region in a localized AWS data center, Sysdig delivers on its promise to support India’s most innovative companies as they pursue secure and sovereign cloud development. The new SaaS region will join the six others that Sysdig has globally, as well as in-region customer support and partnerships with some of the country’s biggest consulting firms and resellers.

India is in the midst of a transformative era. The country’s public cloud services market grew to $3.8 billion during the first half of 2023, and it is expected to exceed $20 billion in cloud spending over the next three years [1]. With more than 84% of large organizations adopting SaaS applications and 53% of enterprises increasing their adoption of cloud-native services such as containers and Kubernetes over the last two years, the country’s cloud adoption is on pace to create 14 million new jobs by 2026 [2]. 

The transition to the cloud offers Indian organizations the opportunity to capitalize on greater speed and automation for application development and delivery. This speed, however, comes at the expense of faster attacks. Whereas dwell time on-premises is 16 days, attacks can happen in just 10 minutes in the cloud. AI continues to put additional pressure on the speed of attacks. While prevention is necessary, it leaves companies operating in the cloud needlessly vulnerable. Cloud detection and response that alerts users when an attack is happening in real time has become mandatory.


Real-Time Cloud Security

Sysdig has taken a unique approach to cloud security using runtime insights, which enables security teams to move faster and make better-informed decisions. By focusing on what is exploitable at runtime, Sysdig can inform decisions made across the entire software development life cycle.

  • Stops attacks in real time: By detecting and alerting on threats anywhere in the cloud fabric within two seconds, Sysdig can stop attacks instantly. Using open source Falco, Sysdig instantly detects changes across environments.
  • Gain visibility across cloud-native environments: Sysdig aligns visibility across cloud services – containers, Kubernetes, cloud logs and trails, Linux and Windows servers, and serverless function-as-a-service (FaaS). By removing the bottlenecks caused by legacy security tools, Sysdig unlocks the visibility necessary to effectively protect organizations’ entire cloud estates.
  • Focus on the threats that matter: With Sysdig, enterprises can prioritize the fixes that matter most in their cloud environments – from vulnerabilities and misconfigurations to permissions and runtime threats. By uncovering hidden risks and attack paths, paired with runtime insights, security teams can prioritize the threats that impose the greatest risk and filter out 95% of the noise.

Although the company’s new Indian SaaS region runs in AWS, Sysdig secures customer workloads and environments in AWS, GCP, Azure, and beyond across the globe.

What People are Saying

“Enterprises are increasingly relying on public cloud services as they drive digital transformation and seek agility and operational efficiency,” said Harish Krishnakumar, Senior Market Analyst, Enterprise IT Services and Cloud, IDC India. “A growing emphasis on cost optimization continues to accelerate the shift to an ‘as-a-service’ consumption model, driving the demand for cloud infrastructure services. Public cloud services [are] expected to have robust demand in the upcoming years as GenAI gains traction, and enterprises focus on implementing workloads that leverage next-gen technologies while migrating their existing workloads over to a cloud environment.” [3]

“Last month, the United States released a list of ‘critical and emerging’ technologies that it plans to develop in partnership with India, recognizing the country’s technological talent and advancements. As India continues to experience meteoric growth, the need for real-time cloud security will surge, and as our current India-based customers know, Sysdig is committed to being a true partner and working together to defeat adversaries,” said Suresh Vasudevan, CEO, Sysdig.

“Our expansion and investment in India will significantly accelerate our customer footprint while empowering the country’s government and enterprises to innovate in the cloud with confidence and enhanced security,” said Gavin Selkirk, Vice President and General Manager of Asia-Pacific and Japan, Sysdig.
