Gartner Report: Cloud-Native Application Protection

Get Key Insights on Securing Cloud-Native Applications

In the 2021 Gartner® Innovation Insight for Cloud-Native Application Protection Platforms report, you’ll find critical takeaways on the convergence of cloud security posture management (CSPM) solutions and cloud workload protection platforms (CWPP), as well as the need for full lifecycle security for your applications. 

The Gartner report 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.”1

Read the 2021 Gartner report to learn about:

  • Prerequisites and best practices for securing microservices-based architectures, including containers, Kubernetes® and serverless
  • Requirements for implementing DevSecOps, both for applications and cloud configurations, to identify vulnerabilities and misconfigurations early in the development process
  • The need for an integrated security approach that includes CSPM, CWPP, CIEM and more into a new category called Cloud-Native Application Protection Platforms (CNAPPs)
