Sysdig vs gitlab

Summary

Sysdig provides solutions that help secure containerized workloads through their integration with the open source Falco project. They are capable of scanning containers for vulnerabilities and securing code in runtime through their intrusion detection and prevention capabilities.

FEATURES

Container Scanning

When building a Docker image for your application, GitLab can run a security scan to ensure it does not have any known vulnerability in the environment where your code is shipped. Results are then shown in the Merge Request and in the Pipeline view. This feature is available as part of Auto DevOps to provide security-by-default.

Vulnerability Management

GitLab’s vulnerability management is about ensuring assets and applications are scanned for vulnerabilities. It also includes the processes to record, manage, and mitigate those vulnerabilities.

Vulnerability management helps identify meaningful sets of vulnerabilities, in both your assets and application code, that can be mitigated, managed, and acted upon by your whole team—not just the security organization. It also provides a unified interface to the systems teams are already using for managing results from the ~”devops::secure” stage so there is always a single source of truth and single place for managing security results.

Cloud Native Network Firewall

Cloud native network firewall provides container-level network micro segmentation which isolates container network communications to limit the “blast radius” of compromise to a specific container or microservice. A container-aware virtual firewall identifies valid traffic flows between app components in your cluster and limits damage by preventing attackers from moving through your environment when they have already compromised one part of it.

Container Host Monitoring and Blocking

“With Container Host Monitoring, you can monitor running containers for malicious or unusual activity. This includes process starts, file changes, or opened network ports. You can also block or prevent these activities from occurring.”

Policy Management for Container Network Policies

“Policy Management for Container Network Policies provides an easy way to create, edit, delete, view, and manage Network Policies in the GitLab UI.”

License Compliance

Check that licenses of your dependencies are compatible with your application, and approve or deny them. Results are then shown in the Merge Request and in the Pipeline view.
