Cloud security continues to be a vexing situation, and the tool set continues to become more complex, riddled with acronyms representing possible solutions. Now there’s another: the cloud native application protection platform, or CNAPP. This tool combines the coverage of four separate products:
A cloud infrastructure entitlements manager (CIEM) that manages overall access controls and risk management tasks
A cloud workload protection platform (CWPP) that secures code across all kinds of cloud-based repositories and provides runtime protection across the entire development environment and code pipelines
A cloud access security broker (CASB) that handles authentication and encryption tasks
A cloud security posture manager (CSPM) that combines threat intelligence and remediation
IT and security managers are looking for a few basic elements from these products, including more accurate threat detection, support for all workloads across multiple cloud deployments, and ways to implement preventable controls.
