Aqua recognized for taking an innovative approach to solving cloud native and container security challenges

BOSTON – February 19, 2019Aqua Security, the leading platform provider for securing container-based and serverless cloud-native applications, today announced has been selected as a winning Security Trailblazer in the 2018 Tech Trailblazers Awards. The awards program focuses on identifying the most innovative enterprise technology startups, and recognizes those demonstrating technological and commercial advances, and entrepreneurial excellence. In addition to being named the winner of the Security Trailblazers Award, Aqua was runner up in the Container Trailblazers category, recognizing that the Aqua solutions are often deployed across Development, Operations and Security teams.

The Aqua Cloud-native Security Platform delivers the 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. Aqua’s solution separates itself from other vendors’ solutions by providing full lifecycle security from early stages of development, through staging and deployment, to production runtime environments.

Utilizing Aqua, organizations gain access to consistent visibility, detection and prevention capabilities across the spectrum of their cloud-native operations, ensuring that only approved code runs in their environment, and that containers and functions only get the most minimal privileges they require. Run-time protection makes it possible to detect and automatically respond to suspicious activity in real-time, limiting the impact of attacks.

“Enterprises across virtually all industries are adopting containers and serverless functions to enable developers to build and ship applications faster than ever, driving digital transformation,” said Dror Davidoff, Co-founder and CEO, Aqua Security. “By providing a comprehensive platform for securing these cloud-native environments, we enable our customers to extract all the agility, scale and efficiency benefits of these new architectures offer without increasing their risk profiles.”
