Sysdig vs. Lacework

Prioritize the most critical security risks by focusing on what’s in use with runtime insights.

Hardening and Prevention

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

Good UI that provides a static overview for security and compliance posture, but lacks runtime context to prioritize risk.

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.

No real-time detection, inability to customize, and delayed reporting leaves customers exposed.


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.

ML is their only line of defense for detection. Lacework has no Plan B.

Cloud Native

Comprehensive security for VMs, containers, Kubernetes, and serverless.

Includes simple support for cloud native environments, but lacks robust detection and response for cloud native.

Open vs Proprietary

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

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.
