Embed security and validate compliance

With daily updates in a Kubernetes environment, it’s easy for new vulnerabilities to be introduced and applications to fall out of compliance. It can take days or weeks to detect and respond to container specific attacks, leaving your company open to data breaches and compliance fines. Teams don’t know how to get started easily with existing tools and struggle to plug them into their DevOps workflow. Ultimately, security and compliance can slow down application delivery.

Built for Kubernetes and Container Security

You need to automate and merge security and compliance into the DevOps workflow. Your tool of choice should provide core workflows that address security requirements across all stages of the Kubernetes lifecycle while integrating with your existing tools.

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.



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.

Audit Logs and Captures

Conduct troubleshooting, forensics and incident response for containers and Kubernetes. Investigate monitoring of security issues with the same data and recover quickly. Sysdig Secure is your source of truth for all activity in the container ecosystem before, during and after an incident.

Sysdig Secure DevOps Platform

Confidently run cloud-native workloads in production using the Sysdig Secure DevOps Platform. With Sysdig, you can embed security, validate compliance and maximize performance and availability. The Sysdig platform is open by design, with the scale, performance and usability enterprises demand.

Sysdig Secure

Sysdig Secure embeds Kubernetes security and compliance into the build, run, and respond stages of the application lifecycle. Now, you can identify vulnerabilities, check compliance, block threats, and respond faster. This is powered by the open-source cloud native runtime security project called Falco. Read more about how Sysdig Secure extends Falco.

Image Scanning


Scan container images in the CI/CD pipeline and block vulnerabilities before they reach production.



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

Runtime Security


Detect and block attacks, combining deep visibility into system calls with Kubernetes metadata, labels, and audit events.

Forensics and Audit

and Audit

Record a snapshot of pre- and post-attack activity through system calls.

Get Started Quickly

Get productive in minutes with guided onboarding that helps you easily plug scanning into your CI/CD pipelines, integrate with Kubernetes audit logs, and setup alerts and notifications. Easily meet security and compliance requirements with out-of-the-box curated workflows. Sysdig Secure is a SaaS-first container security tool built for efficiency and faster innovation.

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.
