Market Guide for Cloud
Workload Protection Platforms

Gartner Logo

In its most recent market guide, Gartner provides valuable guidance into the rapidly-growing Cloud Workload Protection (CWP) market.

Key findings include:

  • Enterprises are implementing hybrid data center architectures, with workloads running on premises and in multiple cloud IaaS providers.
  • The increasing adoption of containers complicates workload protection strategies.
  • Elastic, cloud-native applications have unique security needs. Legacy on-premises security agents are not designed to perform at cloud scale.
  • Signature-based, anti-malware scanning provides little value for most server workloads.
  • Security leaders should require vendors to API-enable security protection functions to be automated and integrated into DevSecOps-style workflows.
