Datadog, Inc. (NASDAQ: DDOG), the monitoring and security platform for cloud applications, today confirmed the closing of the previously announced acquisition of Sqreen, a SaaS-based security platform that enables enterprises to detect, block, and respond to application-level attacks.
The closing of this deal will bolster Datadog’s existing APM functionality and move the company closer to providing customers with a robust, full-stack security monitoring solution for the cloud age.
“The application layer is currently one of the most vulnerable and exploitable attack surfaces,” said Olivier Pomel, CEO, Datadog. “In combining Sqreen with Datadog, we’re closing the gap between application developers and security teams and providing our customers with robust application security, without the disjointed visibility, high implementation costs, or steep learning curve of traditional application security products.”
“This is an exciting new chapter for Sqreen that will enable us to deliver on our mission of creating a more secure future for all organizations,” said Pierre Betouin, CEO, Sqreen. “As part of Datadog, we will accelerate the way we build security tools that automate application protection, threat detection, and security monitoring while delivering more value to customers.”
According to Gartner, Inc, “Traditional application security approaches rely on heavyweight, one-time gating inspections, typically performed late in testing, taking days (if not weeks) and requiring security professionals to perform them. This won’t scale for DevSecOps. DevOps emphasizes continuous feedback throughout the process and improved automation.
Security needs to adopt and support a mindset where security starts at the very beginning of service creation and throughout the DevOps processes, and is continuous, automated and improves with each subsequent iteration.”
