Sysdig is a container monitoring and security platform that provides visibility into containerized applications running on a variety of cloud and cloud-native platforms, including Kubernetes, Docker, and AWS. It helps you troubleshoot issues, secure your applications, and meet compliance requirements.

Sysdig has two main products: Sysdig Monitor and Sysdig Secure. Sysdig Monitor provides monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities, while Sysdig Secure provides container security, compliance, and vulnerability management. The Sysdig Agent underlies both, and is deployed differently for Sysdig Monitor vs Sysdig Secure.

You can deploy Sysdig using a variety of methods, including as a Kubernetes deployment, a standalone installation, or as a cloud service. The deployment options vary depending on the features you would like to install.
