Aqua Security New Business Increases by 65% in H1 2023
BOSTON, Sept. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aqua Security, the pioneer in cloud native security, today announced it closed the first half of 2023 with a 65% increase in new business. Aqua attributes this growth to increasing demand for its unified cloud native application protection platform (CNAPP) and its proven ability to see and stop cloud native attacks in progress anywhere in the software development lifecycle.
“From day one, our vision has been to deliver a complete, full lifecycle security solution in one holistic platform,” said Dror Davidoff, co-founder and CEO of Aqua. “It is not enough to simply see an attack. You need visibility into what’s happening across the entire software development lifecycle, and you must be able to stop those attacks at any point.”
Aqua leads the cloud native security market as the first integrated CNAPP helping customers see and stop attacks across the entire application lifecycle, from code to cloud, and back. It was also first to market with software supply chain security capabilities and with Real-Time CSPM — the only solution that combines agentless and in-workload visibility for a complete and prioritized view of cloud security risk in real time.
With the addition of features released in the past quarter, the Aqua Platform is the only CNAPP to offer cloud-to-code tracing capabilities, which transform how cloud risks are discovered, and massively reduce time to remediation. Teams can quickly trace cloud security issues back to individual developers and their code commit to improve efficiency and cut down resolution time. When combined with Aqua’s workload protection capabilities, Aqua delivers a single source of security truth and enforcement for both dev and cloud.
