Cloud Workload Protection Platform

Secure containers, hosts and serverless workloads across cloud environments. Automate Infrastructure as code (IaC) security and vulnerability scanning. Detect and respond to runtime threats based on Falco. Enforce Kubernetes compliance and governance via policy as code against PCI, NIST 800-53, SOC2, etc.

Cloud Workload Protection

Scan for IaC misconfigurations and auto-remediate drift

Scan for misconfigurations (i.e., overly permissive workload configurations) across IaC templates like Terraform, Helm, Kustomize, YAML, etc. Automatically remediate runtime drift with a simple Git pull request.

Container Security Across the Lifecycle


Infrastructure as Code (IaC)

Sysdig Secure Infrastructure as Code (IaC) security integrates directly into your CI/CD pipeline and prevents misconfigurations, noncompliance, and security risks before runtime.



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.



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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is CWPP?

A: Cloud Workload Protection Platform (CWPP) tools focus on securing workloads, typically providing cloud-based security solutions that protect instances on AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and other cloud vendors.

Q: What are the key CWPP use cases?


  • Runtime detection: Prevent and detect suspicious behavior at runtime in containers and microservices. Automate response for container threats.
  • System hardening: Detect anomalous activity inside of Linux hosts or VM-based workloads running on top of the host.
  • Vulnerability management: Detect OS and non-OS vulnerabilities from container images stored in CI/CD and registries before deploying to production.
  • Network security: Visualize network traffic inside containers and Kubernetes and enforce Kubernetes-native network segmentation.
  • Compliance: Validate container compliance and ensure File Integrity Monitoring inside containers.
  • Incident Response: Conduct forensics and incident response for containers and Kubernetes even after the container is gone.

Q: How are CWPP tools deployed?

A: CWPP tools are typically agent-based. Sysdig agent lives on the hosts being monitored and collects the appropriate data and events.

Q: What is the difference between CWPP and CSPM?

A: Cloud Workload Protection (CWPP) revolves around securing workloads running in the cloud, while Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) protects cloud services (i.e. cloud storage, managed databases, load balancer services, multi-factor authentication). Both focus on protecting sensitive data in the cloud.
