Differences between CSPM and Bionic

CSPM = Infrastructure & Cloud

CSPM tools like Lacework, Wiz, and Prisma Cloud are very good at what they do: infrastructure and cloud security. But what they do not visualize and secure is the application-layer and code. They are also looking at the user activity to generate these insights, leaving room for false positives.

Looking at logs/events/metrics from infra/network/apps

Contextualize clusters, workloads, nodes, containers, and pods

Reliant on traffic or user activity

Bionic = Application Layer & Code

Bionic creates a real-time living architecture diagram by analyzing code, not infrastructure or user activity, so we are able to detect when your application architecture drifts from its intended structure or behavior. Because we look at the application artifacts, we are able to generate insights on the application logic that CSPM tools do not.

Looking at code to map every service, API, dependency and data source

Agentless and passive data collection

Prioritize risk based on business context of the application code

Bionic gives you the application visibility
that your CSPM tools can't.
