Sysdig vs. CrowdStrike

Security powered by runtime insights,
designed for the speed of the cloud.

Detection and Response

Detect and respond to threats in real time anywhere in the cloud with 360-degree visibility and correlation across workloads, identities, cloud services, and third-party applications.

Strong EDR solution, but limited detection for containers/Kubernetes and serverless.

Hardening and Prevention

Prioritize the most critical security risks using runtime insights that tell you what’s in use and happening live in production.

Crowdstrike is not DevOps friendly. It lacks comprehensive posture and permissions management and vulnerability prioritization capabilities.


Consolidate security with an end-to-end detection approach combining Drift Control, ML, and Falco detections, curated by Sysdig Threat Research. Combine agent and agentless for best-in-class detection.

Crowdstrike provides strong coverage for endpoints and Windows, but is limited for Linux.


Multi-layered enrichment that combines hosts, containers, Kubernetes, and cloud metadata.

Crowdstrike lacks the rich metadata needed to scope policies, filter events, and assign ownership.

Open vs Proprietary

Powered by Falco, the open source solution for cloud threat detection.

Crowdstrike is a black box solution with no visibility into or control over its decision logic.

Why Companies Choose Sysdig

Powered by runtime insights, Sysdig stops threats instantly and reduces vulnerabilities by up to 95%. We created Falco, the open source solution for cloud threat detection, and apply runtime insights to help you focus on the vulnerabilities and threats that matter most. Prevent, detect, and respond at cloud speed with Sysdig.

Real Time

Detect threats in real time, rather than seeing them in the rearview mirror. Stop attacks up to 10x faster with Sysdig.

End-to-End Detection

Consolidate security with a platform that provides end-to-end coverage, delivering breadth and depth.

Risk Prioritization with Runtime Insights

Know what’s running in production across cloud and containers,so dev and security teams can focus on the vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, permissions, and threats that matter most.


“In the cloud, everything happens fast. Time is of the essence when stopping attacks. Breaches can be very costly. Sysdig enables us to quickly detect and respond to cloud attacks at cloud speed by knowing what is happening, the exact container or location in the cloud, and what is causing it, versus the hours it used to take to detect and understand what needs to be done.”
