D2iQ, a provider of enterprise Kubernetes for cloud-native applications, has collaborated with Aqua Security, a cloud-native security company, to accelerate the DevOps adoption. As both the companies provide solutions for cloud-native applications, the integration of Aqua’s Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) with the D2iQ Kubernetes Platform will enable the company to leverage the integrated security features for containerized workloads.
As part of the collaboration, the combined solution allows enterprises to automate and “simplify” the DevOps experience to monitor and reduce risks, enhance workload management, and mitigate cloud-native attacks. Enterprises can effectively develop, deploy, and manage cloud-native applications by utilizing integrated security features, executives said.
“Aqua and D2iQ both place immense importance on stopping attacks across the cloud-native application lifecycle, from development to production,” said Dror Davidoff, co-founder and CEO of Aqua Security. “The combined power of DKP’s automation capabilities and Aqua’s full lifecycle platform enables organizations to seamlessly adopt Kubernetes and do so with the assurance of end-to-end security built specifically for cloud-native applications.”
Gartner has recognized the “emerging category” of CNAPP, stating that, “Optimal security of cloud-native applications requires an integrated approach that starts in development and extends to runtime protection. SRM leaders should evaluate emerging cloud-native application protection platforms that provide a complete life cycle approach for security.”
The Aqua integrated cloud-native security platform provides security features to protect systems on any cloud, across virtual machines, containers, and serverless. The company has designed the security platform for providing scale and performance to enterprises, protecting their clusters and huge DevOps pipelines.
Aqua unified cloud-native security platform provides prevention, detection and response automation across the entire application lifecycle to secure the supply chain, cloud infrastructure, and running workloads. The partnership gives users the ability to simplify the complex Kubernetes environment by giving operational insights.
“When delivering cloud-native applications, organizations must balance these concerns with the need for speed and agility,” said Tobi Knaup, CEO of D2iQ. “With this new partnership, D2iQ and Aqua offer a unique solution that provides organizations with agility, speed, and enhanced security to quickly and securely achieve Day-2 success.”
