COMPANY NEWS: Pure-play cloud native security provider Aqua Security has announced its ranking as an outperformer and leader in innovation in the GigaOm Radar for Container Security.

The report highlights key vendors in container security, defines criteria for evaluating solutions and validates that Aqua is the leader and innovator in cloud native security.

GigaOm analysts evaluated 11 vendors, and according to the report the Aqua Cloud Native Security Platform ranked highest in innovation. The report notes that "the depth of integration among the services, along with the breadth of container security-specific functionality, is a strength for this platform, and few competitors are as zeroed in and as comprehensive."

According to GigaOm, "The Aqua Platform's implementation is well done. Most customers will find the product zeroes in on all the right things to lock down the container environment. If it is a likely need in the average enterprise's container security or compliance strategy, Aqua supports it."

"Aqua is the pioneer in container security and has led the evolving cloud native security market since its inception in 2015," said Aqua senior vice president of strategy Rani Osnat.

"Container security is a key ingredient of our platform and its ability to stop attacks on cloud native applications and infrastructure. This report showcases our team's innovation in securing container-based applications from development to production and highlights the differentiated capabilities that set us apart from competitors and deliver the most value to customers."

The infrastructure surrounding containers is complex on many levels. Aqua's integrated platform offers full lifecycle container security protection and groundbreaking Kubernetes Security Posture Management (KSPM). Its hallmark capabilities reduce risk and prove compliance of containerised applications, harden Kubernetes clusters, mitigate attacks and protect containers across all platforms and formats.

GUEST RESEARCH: Venafi, the inventor and leading provider of machine identity management, today announced the findings of new research that evaluates the complexity of cloud environments and its impact on cybersecurity. The study found that 75% of organisations have experienced a cloud-related security incident over the last 12 months, with more than one in three (37%) suffering at least four incidents. The underlying issue for these security incidents is the dramatic increase in security and operational complexity connected with cloud deployments. And, since the organisations in this study currently host two fifths (39%) of their applications in the cloud but expect increase to 57% over the next 18 months, this complexity will continue to increase.
