Assessment of Gartner’s market guide for cloud workload protection platforms
With the rise of private and public cloud adoption, there is a fast-moving shift from traditional signature-based end-user security to a much more tactful and strategic approach to protecting hybrid and multi-cloud servers and workloads.
As the requirements for cloud services and container use cases increase, so too does the attack surface that InfoSec and DevOps teams must address as a unified security posture to keep the business safe from harm.
In the 2018 Market Guide for Cloud Workload Protection Platforms*, Gartner states:
"Cloud Workload Protection Platform offerings address the unique requirements of server workload protection in modern, hybrid data center architectures that span on-premises, physical and virtual machines (VMs), and multiple public cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) environments. In addition, support for protecting container-based application architectures is becoming a mandatory requirement."
