According to GigaOm: “The Aqua Platform’s implementation is well done. Most customers will find the product zeroes in on all the right things to lock down the container environment. If it is a likely need in the average enterprise’s container security or compliance strategy, Aqua supports it.”
“Aqua is the pioneer in container security and has led the evolving cloud native security market since its inception in 2015,” said Rani Osnat, SVP Strategy at Aqua. “Container security is a key ingredient of the Aqua Platform and its ability to stop attacks on cloud native applications and infrastructure.
