CNCF upgrades Falco runtime security tool to incubator status


Falco, originally created by Sysdig in 2016, is approved to join CNCF Incubation after 257% increase in downloads. The CNCF’s only open source Kubernetes runtime security project has more than 8.5 million downloads as runtime security becomes cemented as a standard component of the cloud-native stack. Falco entered the CNCF as a Sandbox Project in October 2018, the first and still the only runtime security technology to join. In the event of unexpected behavior at runtime, Falco detects and alerts, reducing the risk of a security incident.
