The intersection of Observability & Security
with Alex Lawrence, Sysdig
It’s in their DNA - sysdig (lower case ’s’) started as an open source troubleshooting tool, and the company has maintained that commitment to community. They donated Falco to CNCF as an incubating project with contributors that include AWS, Google, Microsoft, Cisco, and VMware, they leverage projects such as CloudCustodian in their cloud posture capability, and provide PromQL support for deep analysis.
In this episode, we validate Sysdig’s tagline of ‘dig deeper’ with Alex Lawrence, Principal Security Architect. Please enjoy as Alex discusses Sysdig’s product portfolio, which allows practitioners to manage IaC, and vulnerabilities in CI/CD and registries and ultimately into runtime with powerful remediate and forensic capabilities.
Sysdig offers users the confidence to securely build, run, and operate containers, Kubernetes, and cloud environments through a unified security and observability platform. For securing DevOps, the platform includes image scanning, runtime security, network security, incident response, IaC security, cloud security, CIEM, and compliance. For observing, the DevOps platform offers Kubernetes, Prometheus, and cloud observability along with eBPF troubleshooting and analysis capability.
The company and platform are built on a commitment to open-source including the creation and donation of Falco to CNCF as an incubating project, and the continued use and support of Open Policy Agent, Cloud Custodian, sysdig OSS, and Prometheus.
