Sysdig is Built on Open Source
Open source is our heritage, from Wireshark to Falco, and is at the core of what we do.
The Future of Security is Open
In the cloud native era, secure and reliable infrastructure requires an open source approach. Sysdig contributes time, leadership, and code to key projects that make this possible, such as Falco and Prometheus.
We are committed to an open source foundation for cloud security, and the stability and broad ecosystem that it brings our customers.
I really like that Sysdig is so active with open source. Sysdig has open source projects for both security and monitoring. Then there is an enterprise version that fits nicely once you progress through the open source tools. Being a good community member and driver is important to me.”- Principal Container Platform Engineer
Security is a never-ending battle against expanding attacks and attack surfaces. Collaboration brings more expertise, scrutiny, and breadth than proprietary approaches.
Open source gives you code visibility, and influence over direction through participation. Even if you’re not auditing the code yourself, you benefit from cloud-scale contributors and talent.
The cloud-native era has driven new approaches to operations and architecture, and security is no exception. Open source is the engine room of the modern software stack.
