In the fast-paced world of cloud computing, security teams are facing unprecedented challenges. As organizations increasingly adopt multicloud environments and prioritize the development of cloud-native applications, the complexity of ensuring robust security has grown exponentially. To tackle these evolving cloud security needs, a powerful solution has emerged – Cloud-Native Application Protection Platforms (CNAPP).
CNAPP platforms are designed to consolidate multicloud threat prevention and detection, offering comprehensive security from code to cloud. They cover vital aspects of cloud security, including Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM), Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM), and Cloud Workload Protection (CWP).
Customers are at the heart of our strategy and product development. We are honored to team up with thousands of security experts, hear about their cloud security issues, and provide robust multicloud security solutions. It is gratifying to receive positive feedback from customers and be recognized by industry analysts for our innovative contributions. Microsoft Defender for Cloud is recognized as a tech leader in the CNAPP category on PeerSpot, a prominent peer review site. KuppingerCole recognized Defender for Cloud as an Overall Leader, Market Champion, Product Leader, and Innovation Leader in its 2023 CSPM Leadership Compass, noting “Organizations looking for a CSPM which provides multi-cloud capabilities including data aware security posture should consider Microsoft Defender for Cloud.”
