Aqua Security, a security platform for container-based and cloud-native applications from development to production, announced its acquisition of CloudSploit.
Aqua Security accelerating container adoption and fixing the gap between DevOps and IT security expands its cloud security posture management (CSPM) service by acquiring CloudSploit. CloudSploit provides its users to monitor their public cloud accounts within minutes, as well as provides to access their entire estate of cloud resources with its SaaS-based platform. Moreover, the SaaS-based platform of CloudSploit reduces security risks that are caused by misconfiguration and vulnerabilities.
Monitor and manage easily cloud security posture across
“We are excited to add CloudSploit to Aqua’s cloud-native security portfolio. Aqua protects the world’s largest cloud native environments; with CloudSploit our customers can now continuously monitor and manage their cloud security posture across their multi-cloud infrastructures,” said Dror Davidoff, CEO of Aqua Security.
This acquisition means addressing both Container Security and Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) for Aqua Security. Aqua improved Cloud Native Security Platform (CSP) capacity by the protection of virtual machines and now Aqua CSP provides protection VMs for complete cloud workload protection.
According to Gartner’s In its Market Guide for Cloud Workload Protection Platforms, with the growing complexity of cloud-based configurations, complete protection strategies will require a CSPM to ensure continuous, correct and compliant cloud configuration and identification of excessive risk.
Second open-source investment
From now on, customers of the company can lead the protection of their cloud-native workloads by using a single control plane that gives more visibility and efficient remediation. CloudSploit that was co-founded by Matthew Fuller and Josh Rosenthal, is the second open-source investment by Aqua since August after the acquisition of Trivy Vulnerability Scanner.
