You should consider this platform if your company relies heavily on cloud infrastructure to run its most important systems. With the ongoing threats that bad actors pose to your businesses, having an all-in-one solution that streamlines monitoring, detecting, and remediating threats is vital. Look for a CNAPP that protects cloud file storage (like Amazon Simple Storage Service) and also extends to fit with your broader security tooling and processes, such as extended detection and response (XDR).
With a CNAPP, your security team can take a proactive response to cloud security. Instead of waiting for cybersecurity issues to happen, you can prepare for them in advance. Additionally, it removes the trouble stemming from utilizing multiple point products. Developers and DevOps teams also benefit from CNAPPs, as tight integrations with their existing tools and processes drive better communication across teams. CNAPPs help prioritize the remediation of security issues in a natural way for developers, leaving them more time to drive business value.
Many companies have adopted dozens of security tools to handle the jobs that one CNAPP can perform. With multiple tools involved, though, it’s more difficult to take a proactive approach. And when you’re utilizing multiple products, you have to find options that work well together. This can be a difficult endeavor for your security team and increases the possibility of losing valuable security or application context.
Separation also creates blind spots. CNAPPs remove the need to manage multiple applications and solutions at one time, so your security team can better focus its efforts. This translates to more consistent detection and more thorough cloud infrastructure. And because a CNAPP puts everything on one platform, you’ll never have to worry about missing an issue because your team was handling a different situation.
CNAPPs are a more unified security solution for protecting your cloud footprint. With less point solutions to manage, your company’s security team can apply more consistent protections and turn a reactive situation into a proactive one. Not only can this keep issues from popping up, but it can also save your company thousands or even millions of dollars by mitigating and detecting risks before they escalate.
Finally, a singular platform makes it easier to manage and simpler to configure.
