Aqua Security Named Winner in 2019-20 Cloud Awards

International Cloud Computing Awards Program Announces Shortlist

BOSTON – January 30, 2020Aqua Security, the leading platform provider for securing container-based, serverless and cloud native applications, announced today it has been declared the winner of the Security Innovation of the Year award this week in the international Cloud Computing Awards program, The Cloud Awards.

Since 2011, The Cloud Awards program has sought excellence in cloud computing, showcasing finalists and winners spanning the entire globe. The Security Innovation of the Year award recognizes the company the judges feel has developed “a genuinely innovative approach to cloud security.”

Aqua Security offers the market’s most mature and capable platform for securing container-based and cloud-native applications from development to production, accelerating container and serverless adoption and bridging the gap between DevOps and IT security.

The Aqua Cloud Native Security Platform (CSP) provides full lifecycle security from the CI/CD pipeline to runtime production environments. It is the industry’s most comprehensive solution for securing applications using containers and serverless functions, on any platform, “on-prem” or on public clouds including AWS, Azure and Google, among others. Organizations across all markets gain end-to-end visibility and protect their applications against attacks.

“Traditional security tools cannot handle the velocity, scale, and dynamic networking capabilities of containers and serverless infrastructure,” said Dror Davidoff, CEO, Aqua Security. “Container adoption rates are surging, and deploying the Aqua CSP delivers full lifecycle security for these modern architectures.”

Head of Operations for the Cloud Awards, James Williams, said: “Aqua Security is a deserving winner in this year’s Cloud Awards program, not merely showing a dedication and commitment to excellence, but one fuelled by an unmatched passion for innovation. It’s never been clearer to see how intelligent use of cloud technologies has made so much more possible in business.”

Hundreds of organizations entered the Cloud Awards, with entries coming from across the globe, covering the Americas, Australia, Europe and the Middle East. View the full shortlist here:
