Sysdig lauded as Strong Performer in Gartner's CSPM Tools report
Mon, 11th Mar 2024

Sysdig, the cloud security enterprise underpinned by runtime insights, has been lauded as one of the industry's highest achievers in the Gartner Peer Insights Voice of the Customer for Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) Tools. As documented in the report, the recognition was based entirely on customer feedback, synthesising reviews and ratings collected up to 30th November 2023.

The company performed well, garnering a maximum of five stars, thus establishing it as a 'Strong Performer', a distinction earned by just two vendors. In each category reviewed, Sysdig received high marks, namely 4.9/5 for product capabilities, sales experience, deployment experience and 5/5 for support experience.

True to its reputation for innovation, Sysdig remains at the vanguard of cloud security, providing advanced solutions like prioritisation of cloud risk, vulnerability management, and compliance tools, thus exceeding the standards set by traditional static checks. The firm's user-friendly and robust security services have won favourable responses from users, in Sysdig's opinion, enabling complete visibility.

Knox Anderson, SVP of Product Management at Sysdig, welcomed the recognition the company received in the Gartner Voice of the Customer report. Mr. Anderson said, "Customers demand and deserve excellence, and we are thrilled to receive such high praise. We believe a 5 out of 5 rating underscores our commitment to CISOs and boards to keep their cloud environment safe."

While CSPM solutions typically perform intermittent scans, this method only reveals static risks, potentially providing an opportunity for cyber attackers to exploit unobserved gaps. Sysdig's innovative approach to cloud security involves synthesising findings with active risk prioritisation, agentless scanning and real-time security posture checks, thereby empowering organisations to improve their cloud security stance.

With the unique offering of runtime insights, Sysdig provides a clear view into dynamic cloud risks, such as real-time configuration changes, potential user vulnerabilities, permissions in use and more. By enabling security teams to focus on the most urgent and active threats, Sysdig ensures organisations fortify their robust posture management from every angle, thus providing the vigilance needed when cyber threats can materialise within minutes.

Choice client feedback emphasised the unique CSPM approach provided by Sysdig, complementing its comprehensive cloud-native security features and the marked improvement in incident response times. Sysdig's cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) combines CSPM with workload protection, infrastructure entitlement management, and detection and response capabilities, thus providing end-to-end coverage, from prevention through to defence. Consequently, Sysdig patrons are equipped to promptly address any security challenges, enhance operational efficiency across varied cloud environments and protect the entire lifecycle of software development.

According to a Director of Strategic Initiatives at a Software Company, "I'm genuinely impressed with the level of real-time security posture checks [Sysdig] brings to our cloud infrastructure. The solution has proven to be an invaluable asset in ensuring the safety of our cloud-native application and data." Furthermore, a VP of IT Security and Risk Management at a financial company praised Sysdig CSPM for its "unmatched insight and fortified security for cloud-native infrastructure with state-of-art technology."
