Gartner® Report: Innovation Insight for Cloud-Native Application Protection Platforms

The inherent complexity of cloud-native environments makes it harder to monitor them, potentially opening up security vulnerabilities. These environments have their own challenges and unique security demands. The unique characteristics of cloud-native applications make them impossible to secure without a complex set of overlapping tools spanning development and production.

Understanding and addressing the real risk of cloud-native applications requires advanced analytics—combining siloed views of application risk, open source component risk, cloud infrastructure risk, and runtime workload risk. Gartner® research on “Innovation Insight for Cloud-Native Application Protection Platforms” states: “Optimal security of cloud-native applications requires an integrated approach that starts in development and extends to runtime protection. SRM leaders should evaluate emerging cloud-native application protection platforms that provide a complete life cycle approach for security.”

This Gartner® report provides critical insights into the key solution required to secure a cloud-native environment and how CNAPP can address end-to-end cloud-native security requirements across organization workloads with a broad set of capabilities.

Download the Gartner report to learn about:

  • The need for an integrated security approach with Cloud-Native Application Protection Platforms (CNAPPs) that combines the power of security tools such as CSPM, CIEM, IaC, Vulnerability Management, CWPP, and more.
  • The importance of risk assessment and correlation of a broad set of data to secure cloud-native applications.
  • Best practices for securing microservices, including containers, Kubernetes, and serverless.
  • The benefits of identifying vulnerabilities and misconfigurations early in development by embedding security in DevOps workflows.
