Cloud-native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) Market Trends



  • The rising need for cloud-native security


As more businesses and organizations transfer their digital activities to the cloud, there is a growing demand for more robust, unified cybersecurity solutions. Organizations of all sizes are shifting applications and workloads to cloud platforms to take advantage of flexibility, cost-efficiency, and agility. This extensive adoption necessitates the development of cloud-specific security solutions. Cloud-native application protection platforms (CNAPPs)聽are intended to respond to this demand by providing a single, extensive security solution in place of fragmented alternatives that use many independent security technologies. For instance, in July 2023, PingSafe introduced聽a cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) based on an algorithm that finds weaknesses that fraudsters may exploit and allows security professionals to replicate cyberattacks.


Cloud-native apps are frequently designed with microservices聽and serverless computing, resulting in highly dispersed and dynamic systems. Traditional security procedures are inadequate for these complex architectures, necessitating the implementation of specialized security solutions. Thus, the need for CNAPP is rising significantly to reduce audit fatigue with automated security measures for ongoing compliance and monitoring of data, configurations, and permissions.
