The firm provides cloud metrics for cloud providers across a variety of services, apps and systems while offering a software-as-a-service (SaaS) that can easily integrate with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Java and Google’s cloud platform. Though Datadog’s major partners are AWS, Slack, MongoDB and Fastly.
The firm sent out an email over the weekend in which it warned its users of data breach and recommended they change their passwords if they had been stored on the site. Google Auth and SAML users do not need to do so as they were unaffected by the breach. Datadog also sent a notice to admin users telling them to revoke or change any credentials stored in its system.
