Aqua News Aqua Security Launches Enterprise Cloud Native Security SaaS in APJ

Introduction of Aqua’s Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) in Singapore cements investment in APJ Region

Singapore — June 14, 2022Aqua Security, the leading pure-play cloud native security provider, today announced the general availability (GA) of cloud native security SaaS in Singapore, serving the broader APJ region. Customers can immediately take advantage of the data sovereignty, platform security and flexibility provided by the SaaS service to prevent cloud native attacks before they happen.

With SaaS in Singapore, Aqua customers in government, banking, financial services as well as other regulated sectors can leverage the service for comprehensive cloud native security, compliance and risk management, through an in-region service that addresses their data sovereignty and governance requirements.

The SaaS service enables customers to adopt cloud native security best practices as they expand their cloud native footprint and DevOps pipelines.

The GA launch of the SaaS in Singapore builds on two services already being utilized by customers: Aqua’s CyberCenter threat intelligence and vulnerability information database for scanning, and Dynamic Threat Analysis (DTA). Both allow DevOps teams to shift further left and incorporate security into their CI pipelines to identify malware and potentially malicious code.

The Singapore SaaS region now offers the full Enterprise suite, as part of Aqua’s Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP), including software supply chain security and shift-left risk-centric vulnerability management, security issue categorisation and runtime protection.

Enforcement of runtime protection and monitoring policies is available across containers, including managed container platforms, serverless and virtual machines in public cloud and on-premises.  The full suite of functionality allows customers to solve their cloud native security needs in a single platform.

“We have a number of existing public sector customers in Singapore, and we are committed to meeting our customer needs and requirements,” said Rob D’Amico, AVP of APJ at Aqua. “We’re seeing a surging interest from customers for an integrated and unified platform that protects the full cloud native application lifecycle from code to runtime. Eliminating multiple point solutions drives down operational cost and complexity.”

Aqua Grows Regional Partnerships

As part of the global investment, Aqua is growing its partnerships with technology alliance leaders in the region. Singapore customers, particularly those in highly regulated industries, can keep their data local and adhere to compliance regulations.

“We have strong partnerships in region, and it allows our local customers to leverage our joint investments in Singapore,” said Luke Bennett, Head of Alliances for APJ at Aqua. “It’s about providing customers flexibility – both on data processing location and on integration preference across many cloud and technical partners.  We are committed to integrate and process data securely, regardless of location, for workloads running in public clouds, on-premise datacentres and hybrid architectures.

Aqua Security’s platform is both SOC Type II and ISO27001 compliant.
