Cilium vs Security Monkey: What are the differences?

What is Cilium? API-aware networking and security for containers. Open source software for providing and transparently securing network connectivity and loadbalancing between application workloads such as application containers or processes.

What is Security Monkey? Monitors AWS and GCP accounts for policy changes. Security Monkey monitors your AWS and GCP accounts for policy changes and alerts on insecure configurations. Support is available for OpenStack public and private clouds. Security Monkey can also watch and monitor your GitHub organizations, teams, and repositories.

Cilium and Security Monkey belong to "Security" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Cilium are:

  • Identity Based Security - Cilium visibility and security policies are based on the container orchestrator identity (e.g., Kubernetes labels). Never again worry about network subnets or container IP addresses when writing security policies, auditing, or troubleshooting.
  • Blazing Performance - BPF is the underlying Linux superpower to do the heavy lifting on the datapath by providing sandboxed programmability of the Linux kernel with incredible performance.
  • API-Protocol Visibility + Security - Traditional firewalls only see and filter packets based on network headers like IP address and ports. Cilium can do this as well, but also understands and filters the individual HTTP, gRPC, and Kafka requests that stitch microservices together.

On the other hand, Security Monkey provides the following key features:

  • Single UI to browse and search all accounts, regions, and cloud services
  • Custom account types
  • Custom watchers

Security Monkey is an open source tool with 3.67K GitHub stars and 695 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Security Monkey's open source repository on GitHub.
