Increasing Requirements for Code to Cloud Security Drive CNAPP Growth Potential

Cloud services adoption and complexity are accelerating, particularly in multi-cloud environments. Cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) emphasizes the need for unified life cycle security rather than patchwork solutions. CNAPP enables organizations to increase team collaboration, including security, platform, and development teams, which traditionally work in silos. Changes in the cloud environment and the nature of the cloud-native application development process require these teams to work together to increase their productivity, application resiliency, and business agility.

Deploying point solutions in different platforms and infrastructures with various security rules and policies will reduce overall operational efficiency, end-user experiences, and business outcomes and increase management overheads and security gaps, as the application of security policies may not be consistent across environments.

As a result, it is necessary to converge all security capabilities into a single platform for better risk management and security protection of the cloud-native applications throughout their life cycle to minimize the risks and maximize the protection coverage across all cloud infrastructures, workloads, open-source software, and artifacts. This requires organizations to automate compliance and security checking processes to reduce the reliance on human intervention, which is error-prone, and increase positive security outcomes.

CNAPP, an integrated cloud security platform consolidating all necessary security capabilities, simplifies and automates security and compliance processes to help organizations manage risks and other security issues. It provides an opportunity to eliminate point solutions, enabling companies to save time and management costs and reduce vendor management.

CNAPP facilitates the shift-left security model, which enables organizations to integrate security into the development process in the early phases, reducing risks and time to fix and remediate issues, such as misconfigurations and vulnerabilities in production.
