Sysdig vs. Wiz

Prioritize critical risks and stay one step ahead of unknown threats 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.

Wiz highlights risky combinations of misconfigurations, permissions, and vulnerabilities within their UI. They have made prevention simple and elegant, but they lack 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. Purpose built agents built to scale to 100K+ nodes.

Wiz recently added real time detection for containers and Kubernetes but lacks proven experience at enterprise scale.


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.

Wiz lacks multi-layered detection combining breadth and depth. Without real-time visibility, they can’t stop zero day or unknown threats.

Cloud Native

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

Wiz provides coverage for VMs and containers, but has limited coverage for serverless.

Open vs Proprietary

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

Wiz is a proprietary solution.

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.


“The forensics functionality was key for us in selecting Sysdig for security ... Beyond that, Sysdig helps identify who needs to be notified and provides lessons learned from the configurations.”
