Sysdig Secure for cloud

Sysdig Secure for cloud is the software that connects Sysdig Secure features to your cloud environments to provide unified threat detection, compliance, forensics, and analysis.

Because modern cloud applications are no longer just virtualized compute resources, but a superset of cloud services on which businesses depend, controlling the security of your cloud accounts is essential. Errors can expose an organization to risks that could bring resources down, infiltrate workloads, exfiltrate secrets, create unseen assets, or otherwise compromise the business or reputation. As the number of cloud services and configurations available grows exponentially, using a cloud security platform protects against having an unseen misconfiguration turn into a serious security issue.
