2023 Gartner® Market Guide for Cloud-Native Application Protection Platforms (CNAPP)

Cloud adoption and innovation continues to accelerate, increasing the attack surface of cloud environments and the need to effectively collaborate across security and development teams. CNAPP, or Cloud Native Application Protection Platform, offers organizations the opportunity to bring together multiple security capabilities into a single platform to identify, prioritize, and remediate excessive risks to reduce the attack surface and shorten remediation times.  

In this report Gartner offers insights and recommendations for evaluating and adopting CNAPP offerings to secure your cloud workloads, architectures and applications.  

 We recommend you read the report to learn: 

  • Why security leaders are turning to CNAPP to unify their visibility and to risk-prioritize the results to improve security posture, reduce false positives and noise, and improve developer efficiency. 

  • How CNAPPs can enable security tool consolidation across the development lifecycle from 10 vendors down to 3 for most organizations by 2026. 

  • What key capabilities and characteristics to look for in a CNAPP offering 

  • Recommendations for how you should approach a CNAPP evaluation and deployment, including Gartner's recommendation to "prioritize CNAPP offerings with deep relationship graph analytics expertise."
