Visibility and security for containers, hosts and Kubernetes

Image Scanning


Automate scanning locally in your CI/CD tools without images leaving your environment, and block vulnerabilities pre-deployment



Validate compliance against standards like PCI, NIST, and SOC2 across the lifecycle of containers and Kubernetes

Runtime Security


Detect threats across containers, Kubernetes, and AWS infrastructure with out-of-the-box Falco rules based on syscalls, K8s audit logs, and AWS CloudTrail

Incident Response and Forensics

Incident Response and Forensics

Conduct investigations with low level syscall data, even after the container is gone

Integrated into your cloud-native ecosystem

Sysdig Secure embeds security and compliance into the build, run, and respond stages of the container and Kubernetes lifecycle. Now you can easily identify vulnerabilities, check compliance, block threats, and respond faster.

CI/CD Tools

Sysdig Secure image scanning integrates directly into your CI/CD pipeline and prevents images with vulnerabilities or misconfigurations from being shipped.


Sysdig Secure container image scanning supports all Docker v2 compatible registries. It ensures an up to date risk posture and identifies images that need to be rebuilt if new vulnerabilities are introduced.


Security Policies


Sysdig provides runtime security, infrastructure and application monitoring to help you ship cloud applications faster to production.


Sysdig secures and monitors containers on multiple cloud platforms.

Sysdig ServiceVision enriches container data with the metadata from the cloud providers.


Sysdig supports any orchestrator, multiple Kubernetes distributions, as well as managed platforms.

Sysdig ServiceVision enriches container data with the metadata from Kubernetes/orchestrators. Sysdig uses the native facilities of Kubernetes for policy enforcement and threat prevention.


Sysdig ContainerVision provides deep visibility into all container activity via a lightweight instrumentation model that collects low level system call data.




Configure flexible alerts on image scanning failures, runtime anomalous activity, troubleshooting issues etc through channels you already use (e.g., Slack, PagerDuty, SNS, etc.).

SIEM and SOAR Integrations

Sysdig automatically forwards events to your SIEM tool giving SOC analysts deep visibility into container and Kubernetes incidents. It also integrates with SOAR platforms (Demisto, Phantom) as part of automated security playbooks.

Leading Companies Rely on Sysdig to Protect Their Business

How ATPCO implemented Red Hat OpenShift with Sysdig security and visibility platform.

Goldman Sachs discusses monitoring, troubleshooting, and securing containers in production.

“We have a small team and a true DevOps model where we wear multiple hats. With Sysdig, it has been really easy because there hasn’t been a tradeoff between speed or security.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is Kubernetes?

A: Kubernetes is an open-source platform for managing automated container deployment, scaling, workloads and services. Originally developed by Google and now maintained by the CNCF (Cloud Native Computing Foundation), the purpose for Kubernetes is to automate the operations, deployment, and scaling of application containers across clusters of hosts. Cloud services offered by many vendors now offer their branded version of Kubernetes.

Q: Why use Kubernetes?

A: Containers are very effective at bundling and running your applications. In production settings, there is a need to manage containers that run your applications without downtime. Kubernetes is a framework that manages distributed systems robustly as well as manages the scaling and failover of your container applications. Kubernetes stores and manages sensitive information, will restart containers that fail, automates rollbacks and rollouts, and manages automated mounts of storage systems.

Q: What is Kubernetes Security?

A: Kubernetes security mechanisms protect you against container based attacks. These attacks often occur by hackers exploiting vulnerabilities in container base images or even 3rd party libraries. It could also be due to cluster misconfigurations that allow malicious activity to go undetected at runtime or cause cloud-native applications to fall out of compliance. As a result, your teams need to embed security and compliance across the Kubernetes lifecycle. Native controls like PodSecurityPolicies, helps prevent privilege escalation and blocks threats at runtime. Using open-source Falco, you can detect and alert on malicious activity at runtime. A Kubernetes security tool that is part of your DevOps ecosystem can help you manage your cloud security risk.

Q: What is a Kubernetes Cluster?

Kubernetes pools together various nodes into a cluster to run cloud-native applications. The Kubernetes cluster contains, at minimum, a master node and a worker node. The master node maintains the desired state of the cluster, such as which applications are running and which container images they use and directly controls the worker node. Worker nodes actually run the applications and workloads. When you deploy programs onto the cluster, the master node intelligently handles distributing work to the individual nodes. If any nodes are added or removed, Kubernetes will automatically manage your cluster to match the desired state.

Q: What is difference between Kubernetes and Docker?

Kubernetes and Docker are fundamentally different technologies that work well together for building, delivering, and scaling containerized applications. Docker packages software, or microservices, into a container, to make them more portable. Kubernetes is the orchestrator that helps you scale and manage multiple Docker containers at scale.
