Sysdig Global Expansion Continues with SaaS Hosting in Australia
Sysdig, Inc., the secure DevOps leader, announced the launch of its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering in Australia and New Zealand. Hosted in Sydney, the new SaaS location expands the company’s footprint in APAC, offering companies a local security solution for containers, Kubernetes, and cloud.
With organizations looking to accelerate innovation, there has been a rapid adoption of DevOps. With this surge in activity, the number of security incidents at runtime continues to increase in frequency causing Sysdig to experience a surge in demand for its security, visibility, and compliance software. The Australian SaaS location is in addition to already established ones in Germany and both the east and west coasts of the United States.
When Sysdig closed its Series F funding, CEO Sureah Vasudevan said that the new funds would be used to open new SaaS regions. Earlier this year, Sysdig announced a partnership with NextGen across Australia and New Zealand. With more than 300 customers globally, Sysdig is expanding rapidly in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) with customers from financial services, independent software providers, retail, and the public sector. Globally, there is a DevOps security skills gap, and tools like Sysdig paired with support in region, are positioned to support overstretched IT and security teams.
“Having a local presence for the Sysdig Secure DevOps Platform is important as it gives our integrator partners and customers more flexibility to build at scale, and help secure the application development lifecycle for their cloud applications,” said Anthony Leverington, Managing Director for ANZ at Sysdig.

Benefits of an ANZ SaaS Location and Increased Support
- Better ANZ user experience: Sysdig can service ANZ and the wider APAC region with reduced latency.
- Dedicated support: With local staff and partners, such as NextGen, Sysdig is able to provide white-glove support to ANZ customers.
- Stringent data protection: The new SaaS region offers full encryption. Data is encrypted at rest as well as in motion across public networks. Customers in ANZ can use Sysdig knowing their data is being protected properly and it is not leaving the region.
“With Sysdig now offering a point-of-presence locally, we see this as a game-changer for local customers and partners. The importance of this has been realised with many other SaaS companies in the ANZ region. Securing the application lifecycle is becoming ever more important as companies speed up their digital deployments. With the need to deliver apps to market quickly and securely in order to stay competitive, it is vitally important to have the right tools in place from the very start, and more flexible options can only help with that,” said Gabe Marzano, Head of Cyber Security at NEXTGEN Group
