Sysdig vs. SentinelOne

Learn why businesses looking for a cloud native application protection platform powered by runtime insights choose Sysdig to deliver the real-time visibility and context needed to effectively secure and accelerate their organization.

Why Sysdig is a Better Choice than SentinelOne

Cloud Detection and Response

Detect, investigate, and respond with real-time detections, multi-domain correlation, and context across identity, workloads, cloud services, and third-party applications. Automated and manual response capabilities enable threat eradication.

Detects and reports malicious activities on hosts and endpoints but is not mature enough to understand the complexity of modern cloud applications. Support for the main cloud services providers lacks parity, leaving multi-cloud customers vulnerable with extensive visibility gaps.

Hardening and Prevention

Correlates assets, activity, and risks across domains. Prioritizes the most critical security risks with runtime insights, using context from real-time detections, vulnerable packages, and permissions.

Primarily focused on the detection of malicious activities targeting hosts like an NGAV, leaving cloud posture unaddressed. Prevention is inadequate; basic compliance checks without runtime context mean no true risk prioritization and unprotected cloud assets.


Consolidates security with an end-to-end detection approach combining drift control, machine learning, and Falco detections curated by the Sysdig Threat Research Team. Also, combines agent and agentless approaches to deliver deep coverage and ease-of-use setup and maintenance.

Conceived to primarily secure legacy environments and then retrofitted to also include cloud workloads, meaning they cannot extend their reach beyond securing hosts. Lacking the breadth and depth to understand risks and correlate events across modern composite deployments, they cannot assure their protection.

Cloud Native Platform

Built from the ground up as a complete cloud-native protection platform, integrating best-in-class detection and response, posture and prevention, vulnerabilities, and entitlements. Also, comprehensive and scalable security for even the most complex enterprise multi-cloud estates.

Designed to address the security requirements of endpoints, they provide only essential support for cloud-native environments, lacking the detection, correlation, and response capabilities needed to protect complex architectures built upon disparate cloud services.

Open vs. Proprietary

Powered by Falco (graduate project of the CNCF), the open source solution for runtime security in hosts, containers, Kubernetes, and cloud.

Black box solution with no visibility into or control over its decision logic. Limited customization options prevent users from adapting the solution to their unique requirements.

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 to threats 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

    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.
