Get the first ever Gartner Market Guide for Cloud Native Application Protection Platforms (CNAPPs). Gartner analysts define a CNAPP as “… a unified and tightly integrated set of security and compliance capabilities designed to secure and protect cloud-native applications across development and production. CNAPPs consolidate a large number of previously siloed capabilities, including container scanning, cloud security posture management, infrastructure as code scanning, cloud infrastructure entitlement management, runtime cloud workload protection and runtime vulnerability/configuration scanning.”
Also in the report, the authors emphasize the benefits of a single CNAPP provider, noting, “As organizations shift to a CNAPP-based approach, the synergy of an integrated platform will provide more benefits than a best-of-breed strategy that is difficult to scale.”
