Sysdig Announces Intent to Acquire Apolicy
July 20, 2021

Sysdig announced intent to acquire Apolicy to shift security further left and expand the Sysdig offering to include Infrastructure as code (IaC) security.

Sysdig customers secure the DevOps cycle from build through production. Apolicy complements these capabilities by strengthening cloud and Kubernetes security with compliance and governance enforcement via policy as code, auto-remediation of drift to close the loop from production to source, and faster issue resolution with risk-based prioritization.

IaC Security Benefits with Apolicy Acquisition for Sysdig’s Customers:

- Enforce compliance and governance via policy as code from source to production: Apolicy provides the ability to apply consistent policies and best practices across multiple IaC, cloud and Kubernetes environments. Customers can now bridge the gap between developers, DevOps and security teams with a unified view of security requirements using policy as code. Automating compliance by enforcing OPA-based policies via Kubernetes admission controller puts the control back in the hands of the user.

- Auto-remediate drift and close the loop from production to source: With the addition of Apolicy, customers can now detect runtime drift and instantly map it back to the IaC configuration (source) file. This dramatically increases developer productivity by auto-remediating the IaC configuration source with a simple pull-request and allows for enforcing policy consistently across teams.

- Fix issues faster with risk-based prioritization: Consolidating alerts by identifying the production instances that are affected by the IaC error and prioritizing IaC fixes based on application context, allows users to prioritize remediation efforts. Rich application context makes it easy to identify owners who can fix misconfigurations.

The Apolicy team, including the founders Maor Goldberg, CEO, Eran Leib, VP Product Management, and Shlomi Wexler, VP R&D will join the Sysdig team. The Apolicy product offering will be incorporated as part of the Sysdig Secure DevOps Platform.

The Sysdig Secure DevOps Platform addresses the challenges of securing containers, Kubernetes, and public cloud infrastructure. Sysdig is trusted by hundreds of leading enterprises, including Worldpay by FIS, Yahoo Japan, IBM, and JW Player to confidently run modern cloud applications while managing security risks and meeting compliance requirements.

“Most breaches are caused by configuration errors. Our customers want a single platform that detects configuration errors pre-deployment and identifies drift in production,” said Suresh Vasudevan, CEO, Sysdig. “With Apolicy...Sysdig delivers a secure DevOps workflow for infrastructure and workloads and automatically closes the loop from production to source by fixing issues identified at runtime.”

"We founded Apolicy with the purpose of securing Kubernetes from source to production through risk identification, remediation, and policy enforcement," said Maor Goldberg, CEO, Apolicy. “Together we will bring customers one end-to-end cloud native security platform that is built on open source.”
