Rapid7 Named a Representative Vendor for CNAPP

CISOs typically review multiple budget proposals in a year. Security leaders can leverage findings from recent Gartner research to understand benefits of single-vendor Cloud-Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) offerings that reduce operational complexity through consolidation of vendors, consoles, policies, and contracts – thereby reducing chances of misconfiguration or mistakes. Rapid7 recommends reading this Market Guide to:

  • Educate yourself about cloud-native applications
    To understand how a CNAPP vendor aligns to your organization’s needs, ensure your team is up-to-date on certain aspects of cloud-native applications. Key among those aspects are ever-expanding attack surfaces of CNAPPs and how to evaluate vendors that can mitigate those concerns.

  • Gain clarity into developers’ expanded scope of responsibility
    More than ever before, developers are being tasked with an increased hands-on role in security. As such, it’s critical to adopt a platform that enables an effective "shift-left" and provides coverage from development to runtime.

  • Learn about CNAPP core, recommended, and optional capabilities
    Gartner defines characteristics of a well architected single-vendor CNAPP offering. Learn to analyze and evaluate emerging CNAPP offerings against those characteristics.
