There are a lot of pieces in the cloud security puzzle, and sometimes it can seem like it’s not clear how they fit in the big picture. Think cloud access security brokers (CASBs). Or cloud workload protection platforms (CWPPs). Or cloud security posture management (CSPM). Not to mention software composition analysis (SCA), extended detection and response (XDR), and managed detection and response (MDR).
All of these have their roles in protecting your cloud environments and infrastructure. Yet many are point solutions, operating like clusters of puzzle pieces lying in different places on the card table with no edge to create the big picture.
This is where a cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) comes in. It not only provides the edge of the puzzle that keeps it all together, but it helps development, DevOps, cloud, and security teams sort the pieces into the big picture.
In this report, we explain CNAPP, where and how it fits with cloud security, and its value to not only security operations but also developers and DevOps. We also look at the best way to approach CNAPP so that it fits in your overall cybersecurity strategy and ecosystem.
