Sysdig Container Intelligence Platform certified for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform to accelerate pace of software development

Sysdig Inc., a container intelligence company, announced on Monday Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform certification for the Sysdig Container Intelligence Platform, the first unified approach to container security, monitoring, and forensics. Certification and publication of Sysdig in the Red Hat Container Catalog, Red Hat’s service for discovering, distributing, and consuming commercially-curated Linux container images, is a natural step in the relationship between Sysdig and Red Hat.

With this certification, developers have the confidence of knowing the Sysdig Container Intelligence Platform is a member of the OpenShift ecosystem and has been tested with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, the industry’s most comprehensive enterprise-grade Kubernetes container application platform.

Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform enables developers to build, host, and scale applications in a cloud environment. Sysdig can automate the collection of Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform application and service level-performance metrics, helping to accelerate the software development pace.

The Sysdig ContainerVision agent, patented data collection technology running on each Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform host system, can provide request-level visibility inside containers. This approach to container intelligence is designed to unify monitoring, security, and troubleshooting instrumentation for containers and microservices.

To give developers further insight into logical applications, the Sysdig ServiceVision agent enriches metrics and events with metadata from Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and Kubernetes, as well as clouds like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

“Containers can take friction out of software development. They’re designed to be easily built, deployed, and updated without reliance on permanent infrastructure. However, these dynamic container environments bring challenges when deployed in production, especially with respect to monitoring, management, and security,” said Apurva Dave, chief marketing officer, Sysdig. “By using Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and Sysdig, users can automatically discover insight into how their containers and microservices are performing at the host, network, application, and even the process level.”

“Developers at organizations are using Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform for their cloud applications,” said Julio Tapia, director, OpenShift Ecosystem, Red Hat. “We are happy to collaborate with Sysdig to offer these users more confidence and more choice for added container security and intelligence as they deploy container-based apps in production with OpenShift.”

Last October, Sysdig announced availability of Sysdig Secure, a new offering that enables enterprises to implement powerful run-time security and forensics for containers and microservices in production. Sysdig Secure, part of the Sysdig Container Intelligence Platform, comes out-of-the-box with unmatched container visibility and deep integrations with container orchestration tools, including Kubernetes, Docker, AWS ECS, and Mesos.

Sysdig Secure,  part of the Sysdig Container Intelligence Platform, allows users to leverage integrations with Kubernetes, Docker, AWS ECS, Mesos, Azure and others, Sysdig can detect security violations across a distributed, dynamic, and ephemeral container environment on a service-by-service basis. Its run-time defense allows enterprises to see real-time, anomalous behavior in their applications, containers, hosts, and networks, and stop or quarantine it automatically.

Whether for incident response, auditing, or compliance, enterprises can see every single command and its arguments executed by an operator. Sysdig Secure can automatically record pre- and post-attack activity, correlated with policy violations; and drill down from policy violation, to user activity, system call, and even down to the actual data written to file. Sysdig Secure forensics also allows users to inspect data outside of production, even if the containers are long gone.

Using Sysdig Monitor, enterprises also see all performance data of their system. This gives enterprises additional early indicators of potential security problems.
