Container Security Comparison Checklist: Sysdig vs Lacework

Choose Sysdig over Lacework

Don’t fly blind relying on a black box tool that provides no visibility on how detection policies are built and only limited customization options for your unique cloud infrastructure and workloads. Tools like Lacework lack the deep visibility and rich context you need to accurately detect, prioritize, and immediately respond to threats with reliable forensics across containers and clouds.

The Sysdig difference against Lacework:

Sysdig Secure DevOps Platform
Lacework

Runtime visibility
Deep visibility based on syscalls and cloud activity logs.

Accurate, multi-layered detection approach for hosts, containers, and clouds based on Falco open source engine integrated with ML behavioral analytics.

Real-time detection with no event reporting gaps and complete, detailed forensic data captures.

Limited visibility into containers and clouds.

Limited detection coverage and forensics.

Gaps in reporting security events.

Cloud native context and compliance
Actionable compliance and prioritization of addressable cloud issues to quickly fix those misconfigurations that have the most impact.

Designed around Kubernetes native constructs and integrations for full context.

No cloud remediation capabilities beyond basic non-compliance reporting.

No permissions and entitlements management.

Limited Kubernetes context for incident response.

Open source foundation
Based on open standards with no black boxes.

Community contributions and validation for maximum and trusted coverage.

Closed source platform based on proprietary algorithms.
