Sysdig advancing the future of CNAPP


The continued increase in the adoption of cloud, as well as technologies like containers and Kubernetes, has caused a shift in how organizations protect their assets. A legacy approach is no longer sustainable – customers are looking for vendors who can enable an integrated platform approach to protecting their dynamic workloads. The reality is, companies cannot use legacy tools to protect their cloud-native environments. CNAPP vendors provide a broad set of capabilities that can provide visibility and security from build to production across DevOps, DevSecOps, and cloud infrastructure. But not every CNAPP vendor brings the same capabilities.

In the report, Frost & Sullivan evaluated 15 vendors in the CNAPP market based on their growth potential and ability to innovate. Leaders in the evaluation demonstrate significant growth potential and are instrumental in advancing the future of the industry. Those named Leaders relative to the Innovation Index showcase an ability to develop products that are globally applicable and expand to serve multiple markets and customers’ changing needs.

Sysdig is well positioned to continue to gain market share as one of the fastest-growing CNAPP vendors; Frost & Sullivan estimates a year-over-year growth rate of 144.4% in 2021. Sysdig was recognized as one of “the few vendors that provide a CNAPP platform with full security protection across the application development life cycle.”

Sysdig’s integrated platform approach stood out among other vendors, as well as our industry-leading container security capabilities. Our Cloud workload protection (CWP) module was cited for helping organizations to detect runtime threats, and anomalous threats across containers, hosts, and serverless environments. Customers turn to Sysdig to help manage their vulnerabilities in CI/CD, registries, and production, and to prioritize the vulnerable packages exposed at runtime, helping to reduce vulnerabilities needing immediate attention by up to 95%.
