Fairwinds Insights Drives Significant New Customer Acquisition Over H1 2021

Fairwinds, the leading provider of Kubernetes security, policy and governance software backed by a suite of services and open source tooling, has increased the total number of Fairwinds Insights customers by 300% since the start of 2021. Fairwinds Insights is the company’s SaaS offering that simplifies the complexity of managing Kubernetes across dev, sec and ops teams. Insights has proven to be a natural progression for Fairwinds open source users that want to enable service ownership and realize the benefits across multiple clusters and multiple teams.
With Kubernetes continuing to hold its position as the de facto container orchestration platform, managing complexity as organizations add containerized applications into production environments is critical.
“Fairwinds is simplifying the complexity of Kubernetes, which makes the company very unique and interesting,” said Chris Steffen, research director, information security at Enterprise Management Associates (EMA). “Kubernetes is complex enough on its own, and adding layers of management makes it more complicated. We identified eight Kubernetes cluster management pain points, and Fairwinds Insights addresses all of them. Fairwinds has found a way to bridge the gap between security and development, which gives developers a win.”
Fairwinds milestones in H1 2021 include:
“The continued adoption of Kubernetes requires organizations to implement security, policy enforcement and compliance,” said Bill Ledingham, CEO of Fairwinds. “Fairwinds is uniquely positioned to offer the software needed, having built and maintained hundreds of production-grade clusters. We provide security alerting, service ownership and guardrails needed for reliability and cost optimization.”
