2021 Market Guide for Cloud Workload Protection Platforms (CWPP)

Market Guide for Cloud Workload Protection Platforms

In this updated report, Gartner analysts define the key requirements for CWPP solutions, noting that: 

“The shift to cloud-native application development using container-based application architectures, microservices-based applications and adoption of serverless PaaS requires new CWPP capabilities both for development and at runtime. Cloud-native applications require specific solutions designed to address the protection requirements of cloud-based systems.” * 

Among its recommendations in the report, Gartner is advising its clients to seek solutions that offer: 

  • "Support for Windows, Linux and Linux containers (with explicit support for Kubernetes), and support for serverless function scanning and runtime protection.  

  • Licensing portability across on-premises and public cloud deployments.  

  • Integrated CSPM (cloud security posture management) / KSPM (Kubernetes security posture management) capabilities (typically charged for separately). * "


Aqua Security is proud to be listed by Gartner as a Representative Vendor for Cloud Workload Protection Platforms.
