Cloud security firm Sysdig has embedded cloud detection and response (CDR) into its cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP). The company claims to be the first vendor to offer this consolidation, a move that enables its CNAPP to detect threats with 360-degree visibility and correlation across workloads, identities, cloud services, and third-party applications. It leverages Falco, a widely adopted open-source standard for cloud threat detection governed by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, in both agent and agentless deployment models, Sysdig said.
As cloud adoption grows and organizations build out cloud environments, they face sprawling applications, services, and identities. Detecting and quickly responding to threats across these environments can be a significant challenge for businesses and their security teams, with vast amounts of cloud assets potentially vulnerable and going unchecked for significant periods of time.
