Sysdig Partners with Google Cloud to Build Generative AI into CNAPP

Sysdig, a leader in cloud security powered by runtime insights, today announces a partnership with Google Cloud to develop generative artificial intelligence (AI) features in its cloud security platform.

Sysdig’s cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) consolidates security to enable real-time vulnerability management, entitlement management, posture management, and threat detection and response.

With Google Vertex AI, Sysdig can build AI-powered features and experiences that up-level security teams and protect cloud software development.

The cloud has changed how teams develop and secure software, including real-time interdependencies on each other. The biggest hurdle is speed, including how quickly teams can detect and investigate threats.

With more than 70 percent of containers living less than five minutes, bad actors have adapted tactics to move at cloud speed. The problem will get worse as adversaries become more sophisticated in their use of large language models (LLMs).

During a threat investigation, teams working with different tools that have different languages are hours (if not days) behind threat actors, as security, development, and infrastructure teams interpret results in silos and then attempt to translate across groups.

In the event of an attack, quick communication between these teams is imperative.

By leveraging the power of Google’s generative AI features, Sysdig will simplify the way in which teams interact, and increase the productivity of security analysts and the response time of the entire organization.

Through its partnership with Google Cloud, Sysdig plans to expand its cloud security leadership capabilities, including:

  • Threat research and intelligence
  • Threat detection
  • Incident investigation and response

New generative AI capabilities in Sysdig will be available to customers later this year.
