2021 Gartner Market Guide for Cloud Workload Protection Platforms

In the 2021 Market Guide for Cloud Workload Protection Platforms (CWPP), Gartner states: 

“Workload protection must span virtual machines, containers and serverless workloads in public and private clouds. Security and risk management leaders should use this Market Guide to understand the need for protection that spans development and runtime and includes cloud security posture management.”* 

We believe you'll find critical takeaways on the evolution of cloud native infrastructure in the 2021 Gartner Market Guide for Cloud Workload Protection Platforms* as well as the security essentials for protecting VMs, containers and serverless workloads.

  • Prerequisites and best practices for securing cloud native applications at runtime 
  • Requirements for implementing DevSecOps, both for applications and cloud configurations, to identify vulnerabilities and misconfigurations early in the development process
  • The convergence between CWPP and CSPM platforms into a new category called Cloud Native Application Protection Platforms (CNAPPs)
