APIs are integral to the success of modern enterprises across a wide range of industries, such as finance, logistics, and manufacturing. They not only enable developers to build powerful business solutions by integrating with external applications, but also facilitate communication between internal services. This means that the ability to build reliable, highly-performant APIs—and govern their behavior and performance—is more important than ever. But modern environments often rely on numerous APIs with complex dependency relationships, which makes it extremely difficult to gain complete API-level visibility and ensure that customer-facing services are functioning as expected. That’s why we’re happy to announce that Seekret—a powerful observability platform—is joining Datadog.

What is Seekret?

Seekret uses powerful eBPF technology to autodiscover and visualize API assets, interconnections, and dependencies, enabling developers and product leaders to understand API behavior and usage patterns in complex, dynamic environments. Seekret also helps teams streamline the API development process and enforce standards by automatically validating API best practices, generating tests and documentation, tracking API behavior, and verifying compliance to company policy. Lastly, Seekret is able to analyze the impact of API changes within CI/CD pipelines, which makes it easy to identify breaking changes before they make it to production. Together, these API observability features minimize guesswork and allow teams to iterate quickly and confidently.

Datadog + Seekret

We are pleased to welcome the Seekret team to Datadog, and we look forward to working together to provide our customers with deeper API observability, governance, and automation across the entire API lifecycle. We’re also excited to leverage Seekret’s eBPF expertise to unlock new capabilities in Datadog’s existing APM and security products.
