Sysdig selects NEXTGEN to help drive secure DevOps through the ANZ channel
Reported in ARN and Reseller News, Secure DevOps platform provider Sysdig has signed an exclusive distribution agreement in Australia and New Zealand with NEXTGEN Group, marking its first such partnership with an A/NZ distributor.
Hundreds of companies globally rely on Sysdig for container, Kubernetes, and cloud security and visibility, including customers in the region. The agreement enables the companies to team up to help organizations confidently run modern cloud applications. Sysdig also announced that the company has raised $188 million at a $1.19 billion valuation. Sysdig is looking to further expand into AZN with the new funds.
As containers, Kubernetes, and the cloud become the standard for application deployment, IT teams must adopt secure DevOps practices and toolsets to be successful. In addition to roles and tools changing, there is also an educational aspect to this change.
“At NEXTGEN, we’re focused on working with the world's leading enterprise software providers, and we are highly selective about the technology partners we choose to work with,” Marzano said. “This is particularly so in our cyber security practice, NEXTGEN’s fastest-growing business unit, where the vendor mix is carefully curated to provide complementary, synergistic benefits for enterprise customers.
“Sysdig’s solution has very strong integrations with our existing portfolio of cyber solutions. As more customers move to the cloud and transform their application architectures and adopt Kubernetes and containers, there is an opportunity for partners to work with their customers to implement appropriate tooling to ensure secure, compliant environments.
“We’re excited to be supporting Sysdig’s global expansion and by the opportunity this represents for our partner ecosystem,” she added.
