The cloud is driving transformative benefits for global organizations. But in rushing their applications and infrastructure into new computing environments, they’re also exposing business-critical data to new risks. There are now more ways for the bad guys to steal data, deploy malware, hijack resources, and hold them to ransom. The complexity of hybrid and multi-cloud environments and the need to coordinate across multiple stakeholder groups further compound these challenges.
The answer is a simple, flexible, unified security platform. But as industry analysts are already suggesting, organizations need to go beyond the confines of traditional Cloud-Native App Protection Platforms (CNAPPs) to include extended threat detection and response (XDR). This is where Trend Micro One is way ahead of the curve.
Why Cloud-Native Apps (CNAPP)?
No two organizations are the same. But one thing the cloud has done most is increase the complexity of their IT environments. Some 92% of enterprises have a multi-cloud strategy, while 80% are invested in hybrid cloud. That means most are running a blend of on-premises and cloud and multiple cloud providers. All of which need managing and securing in different ways. To add to this complexity, various groups—from cloud operations and cloud architects to DevOps and traditional security teams—all have their own competing objectives and requirements.
This is part of the reason why CNAPP is gaining traction—consolidating many of the most important features from siloed point products into one streamlined offering. The main capabilities are usually listed as artifact scanning, runtime protection,
