2023 Market Guide for Cloud-Native Application Protection Platforms

Cloud native application protection platforms (CNAPPs) address the growing attack surfaces in cloud security.
According to Gartner, “The attack surface of cloud-native applications is increasing. Attackers are targeting the misconfiguration of cloud infrastructure (network, compute, storage, identities and permissions), APIs and the software supply chain itself." Also, "CNAPP offerings bring together multiple disparate security and protection capabilities into a single platform focused on identifying and prioritizing excessive risk of the entire cloud-native application and its associated infrastructure.”*

We believe this report will help you understand the following:

  • Growing attack surfaces of cloud-native apps: APIs, UIs, Compute, etc.
  • Priorities on security exposures and risks to protect your cloud apps.
  • Recommendations to analyze and evaluate emerging CNAPP offerings.
  • Security features and capabilities to build RFI and RFPs for CNAPP.
