5 Must Haves for Cloud Native Application Protection Platforms

Secure cloud native applications across the full application lifecycle.

Breaking the Divide in Cloud Native Security

With the prevalence of large-scale cloud native deployments, adapting a more modern, agile and integrated cybersecurity approach is mission critical.

As noted by Gartner, rather than treat development and runtime as separate problems — secured and scanned with a collection of separate tools — enterprises should treat security and compliance as a continuum across development and operations, plus seek to consolidate tools where possible.

Enter Cloud Native Application Protection Platforms (CNAPP), a category coined by Gartner and defined in the 2021 Innovation Insight for Cloud-Native Application Protect Platforms report as “an integrated set of security and compliance capabilities designed to help secure and protect cloud native applications across development and production.”

How CNAPP Works

CNAPP removes the gaps in visibility and integration complexities, optimizing observability across enterprise workloads. By shifting security left to development, it also:

  • Reduces the risk of breaches and regulatory penalties
  • Lowers the total cost of fixing vulnerable applications
  • Helps DevSec Ops teams deliver secure cloud native applications, faster
