Aqua News Aqua Security Recognized for Cloud Security Innovation with 2021 CyberSecurity Breakthrough Award

Prestigious International Awards Program Honors Outstanding Information Security Products and Companies

BOSTON, Sept. 30, 2021 – Aqua Security, the leading pure-play cloud native security provider, today announced that it won “Overall Enterprise Cloud Security Solution Provider of the Year” in the fifth annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program. Conducted by CyberSecurity Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization, the awards recognize the best companies, technologies and products in the global information security market today. 

Aqua Security’s Platform is the industry’s first and only unified Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP). Delivered via SaaS or self-hosted, it features a unified console to ease the journey from scanning and visibility to automated workload protection in cloud native environments. The Aqua Platform allows teams to shift-left with security in the application development process as well as detect and prevent active attacks with granular runtime policies that enforce without killing the workload. The platform also hardens the infrastructure and orchestrators used to run applications. 

The Platform’s feature set includes Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM), Vulnerability Scanning, and Aqua Dynamic Threat Analysis (DTA) to detect sophisticated attacks that use evasion tactics during static scans. This DTA technology represents the cybersecurity market’s first fully integrated and automated container security sandbox, enabling organizations of all sizes and across all industries to protect their container-based environments against malware that activates in runtime. 

“The cloud native space is growing rapidly as the world is moving toward widespread modernization. And with companies increasingly focused on digital transformation, there’s a critical need for a security vendor that can keep pace,” said James Johnson, managing director, CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “Aqua Security is delivering on this need with a ‘breakthrough,’ integrated product suite as well as cutting-edge industry research and open source leadership to take on the security challenges that today’s cloud transformation faces. Congratulations on winning our coveted ‘Overall Enterprise Cloud Security Solution Provider of the Year’ award for 2021.” 

The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize innovation, hard work and success in a range of information security categories, including Cloud Security, Threat Detection, Risk Management, Fraud Prevention, Mobile Security, Email Security and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 4,000 nominations from over 20 countries throughout the world. 

This news comes on the heels of several other recent product innovation awards and recognitions for Aqua Security’s Cloud Native Application Protection Platform. Aqua and its CNAPP platform were named a 2021 CRN Emerging Vendor in Security, a 2021 CRN Coolest Cloud Security Vendor, a 2021 SD Times Best in Show for Software Development, and a 2021 Cybersecurity Ventures’ Hot Cybersecurity Company to Watch.
