DatadogDatadog was founded in 2010 by Olivier Pomel and Alexis Lê-Quôc, who met while working at Wireless Generation. After Wireless Generation was acquired by NewsCorp, the two set out to create a product that could reduce the friction they experienced between developer and systems administration teams, who were often working at cross-purposes.

They built Datadog to be a cloud infrastructure monitoring service, with a dashboard, alerting, and visualizations of metrics. As cloud adoption increased, Datadog grew rapidly and expanded its product offering to cover service providers including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Red Hat OpenShift, VMware, and OpenStack.

Datadog Cloud SIEM

Real-time threat detection across operational and security logs.

Datadog Cloud SIEM elevates your organization’s threat detection and investigation for their dynamic, cloud-scale environments. Legacy SIEM tools are unable to deliver effective threat detection and investigation for public cloud environments. With Cloud SIEM, you can augment your existing SIEM investments and deliver better cloud security outcomes. Cloud SIEM analyzes operational and security logs in real time—regardless of their volume—while utilizing curated, out-of-the-box integrations and rules to detect threats and investigate them. Developers, security, and operations teams can also leverage detailed observability data to accelerate security investigations in a single, unified platform.
