Drift Control feature added to Sysdig security tool

Sysdig has announced new security capabilities for containers through the new Drift Control in its Sysdig Securetool, according to SiliconANGLE. Drift Control is designed to prevent cyberattacks at runtime by enforcing the immutability principle to prohibit the modification of containers between deployment and production. This prevents the creation of vulnerabilities that provide an opening for cybercriminals seeking access. It also detects and blocks deviations from trusted containers. Sysdig says teams have grown to neglect immutability best practices because of how dynamic cloud-native environments are, leaving them blind to container drift. The new feature also enables enterprises security teams to detect and speedily address incidents involving software containers being modified in production, according to the company. Sysdig also rolled out enhanced detection capabilities in Sysdig Secure focused on enhanced malware and cryptomining threats. This is made possible through integration with intelligence feeds from Proofpoint Emerging Threats Intelligence and its Threat Research Team. In addition, Sysdig Secure has received Sysdig Rapid Response, a tool that provides security teams with secure shell access on-demand, allowing them to directly investigate suspicious or compromised containers and minimize exposure by removing malicious files from the command line.
