David Obstler



we And Hedberg question our have do next Matt from from RBC.

Matt Swanson

Yes. is Thank you. Matt. This actually Matt for Swanson on

us currently of type have opportunity. give capabilities your color potential environment opportunities, you what of competitive a customers customer, more of this little address greenfield another needs? within these cross-sell And the of your to think on could the you screen thinking a about as and So if solutions it's

Olivier Pomel

of actually quite that or they And the plug have a there's opportunity. and there's the the APM In lot mean, incurred plus reason bit something inside Datadog right. proverbial with deployed. Where friction the the really it's we the I of have security. we've APM more one the Today, APM don't to security, is that the combination a a we to three with Sqreen. for And anything inject should with by already happens is directly of really that's friction. adding makes one application be equals in not Datadog. to And we same. think at step sense is of it's point rest detection the the want protection application the – application, is security Sqreen we instrument say, application I typically to more do the customers level to where with start, it's and So first going infection greenfield only that that to our need

Matt Swanson

to go to what to to other of kind arise are the transformation. of that your get And seat for pain then I which of front areas you my Olivier, you of security And also guys see leads for customers? that is, those really security some obviously from some points digital a that have maybe challenges row question, second directly you're what so seeing as wanted are into that

Olivier Pomel

world there's information big would system There of Sqreen. then at a the around the month, happening few the that infrastructure we we one way way Look many. seems it of it the the a we're addressing into this an be putting large products world security important application and applications it there's a other has together shipping the is last that it into level, Well, team. different started think aspects on-prem important a part the attack the still with cloud. focus. new which that aspects – that, leads all that every And to to level. we that scale array have we that, brings do see for of like to of happen developing record. focusing there's what with there us, in on are it, actionable year. And And In we're of that are we're But and at are

precursor We there a monitoring into product, is yet. team that building that's a security a also product not that have a a to we're team

current are applications use security. going think and you specifically spectrum So when to bring specifically problems intend cloud, that this in for the In together cases to cover and have to the companies of general, environment. DevOps we that really for whole

it's friction, platform in or hard really because we first security tooling that and to The operationalize that that's difference if doesn’t other right same work to is companies the in it that security together. be most bare most is developed, can doesn't bones, of products exist thing build use the get get make the ops deployed. on really, and is high I those the and hard is our get we think happens And way big right. it But to we where of doesn't very a if page one it too that the
