A Gartner report: 2020 Market Guide for Cloud Workload Protection Platforms
"Protection requirements for cloud-native applications are evolving, and span virtual machines, containers and serverless workloads in public and private clouds. Security and risk management leaders must address the unique and dynamic security requirements of hybrid cloud workloads." *
There is synergy in combining CWPP and CSPM capabilities, and multiple vendors are pursuing this strategy. The combination will create a new category of CNAPPs that scan workloads and configurations in development and protect workloads and configurations at runtime.
In this report, among its recommendations, Gartner is advising its clients to:
- Favor CWPP vendors who specialize in container orchestration monitoring and serverless functionality.*
- Require CWPP vendors to offer integrated cloud security posture management (CSPM) capabilities to identify risky configurations.*
- Proactively extend workload testing (especially with containers and serverless) into the CI/CD pipeline. CWPP offerings that focus on runtime protection only are missing the critical shift in how applications and the workloads that host them are being developed.*
