CRN’s list of 10 coolest open-source tools in 2021 so far include python-based restore tooling from Aiven and cloud-use cost visibility from Stackwatch.
Sysdig leverages open source technology to drive developer adoption and make sure security teams are comfortable as projects are embedded into the DevOps lifecycle.
Its Falco cloud-native runtime security project was created in 2016 and has visibility into security events, commands, connections and other syscall activity. It detects anomalous behavior on new logins, file access, system calls, storage writes and Kubernetes API calls. The tool saw a 300 percent increase in Docker Hub downloads over the past year, according to a Sysdig statement from January.
In April, Sysdig raised a $188 million Series F round to boost its engineering and R&D presence in Spain and Italy to keep strengthening its container and cloud security product lines. Sysdig has more than 100 channel partners with expertise in security, cloud and DevOps, and wants to more than double its sales capacity in 2021.
