Adaptive Shield has partnered with Datadog, the observability service for cloud-scale applications, to provide joint customers with the ability to stream and visualize SaaS security alerts from Adaptive Shield.

Adaptive Shield continuously monitors all SaaS apps, users, and associated devices, the platform immediately identifies, alerts, auto-fixes or provides actionable remediation information when any misconfiguration or security drift happens.

Datadog continuously monitors cloud applications, providing unified, real-time observability of customers’ entire technology stack including end-to-end traces, metrics, and logs. These originate from applications, infrastructure, and third-party services. These capabilities help businesses secure their systems, avoid downtime, and ensure customers are getting the best user experience.

Gilad Walden, VP of Product at Adaptive Shield asserts, “This partnership enables security teams to gain visibility, prioritize, and respond to SaaS Security configuration drifts reported by Adaptive Shield’s platform, within the Datadog dashboard”. Gilad continues, “This allows for an easy and streamlined incident management for all connected SaaS apps.”
