Our mission is to make every cloud deployment secure and reliable: Sysdig

Sysdig is driving the standard for cloud and container security. With their platform, you can find and prioritize software vulnerabilities, detect and respond to threats and anomalies, and manage cloud configurations, permissions and compliance. You get a single view of risk from source to run with no blind spots, no guesswork, no black boxes. In fact the company created Falco, the open source standard for cloud native threat detection. Today they have over 700 customers and are trusted by the largest and most innovative companies around the world. 

Deep Visibility Across Your DevOps Workflow

Get unified visibility across workloads and cloud infrastructure from a single cloud security and monitoring platform. Accurately alert on threats, operational issues and compliance risks and respond using a detailed activity record. Easily plug into your existing workflows with out-of-the-box integrations.

Prevent and Detect Threats Based on Falco

Container and CaaS runtime security: Detect threats across containers and Fargate tasks. Automate policies via ML-based image profiling. Automatically remediate with response actions.

Cloud threat detection: Alert on changing permissions of IAM users and resources, storage buckets, access keys, etc. by analyzing cloud activity audit logs (AWS CloudTrail, GCP audit logs) with Falco.

Host and VM security: Detect anomalous activity inside hosts and VMs using Falco policies for runtime security.

Falco Runtime Security: Open-source, Community Driven and Flexible Policy Engine

With Falco, you can create detection rules to define unexpected application behavior or suspicious cloud activity. These rules can be enriched via context from the cloud provider and Kubernetes environments. Detect policy violations using community-sourced detections, and tune them further to reduce noise.

Prioritize What Matters With No Guesswork

Prioritize vulnerabilities with runtime context. Use high fidelity threat detection policies based on machine learning (ML), and curated by Sysdig's threat research team. Reduce alerts with automated Falco tuning. Remediate once with a simple pull request at the source.

Container and Cloud Security Solutions Across the Lifecycle

Sysdig is driving the standard for securing the cloud, empowering organizations to confidently secure containers, Kubernetes, and cloud services. The Sysdig platform enables teams to secure the build, detect and respond to runtime threats, and continuously manage cloud configurations, permissions and compliance.
