Aqua Wave and Aqua Enterprise Debut
July 23, 2020
Aqua Security released its Aqua Platform in two new editions, as well as several updates to the company's core products. Aqua Wave, a SaaS-only offering, delivers an integrated and easy-to-deploy solution to secure applications as they are built, and the infrastructure they are deployed on. Aqua Enterprise, available as both a self-hosted and SaaS offering, adds new capabilities for securing workloads at runtime across the technology stack utilized for today's modern IT environments.
"We have been investing aggressively in innovation resulting in truly
unique capabilities for protecting our customers' cloud native stacks.
Having established dedicated teams focusing on cyber security research
and open source development, we're cementing our position as the cloud
native security industry experts," noted Dror Davidoff, CEO and
co-founder of Aqua. "In recent months we introduced new products such as
Aqua Dynamic Threat Analysis to identify hidden malware before they
reach production, and Aqua vShield to protect vulnerable applications
from exploits when fixes are unavailable or cannot be applied. The new
Aqua Wave and Aqua Enterprise offerings further extend our ability to
deliver best-in-class solutions however customers choose, entirely as
SaaS, on-premises, or in a hybrid model."
The new release of Aqua CSPM also introduces capabilities for self-healing cloud infrastructure:
In a recent report*, Gartner recommends that "SRM leaders looking to improve their cloud workload protection should: Consider a comprehensive cloud-native application protection platform that combines the needs mentioned above — container scanning, serverless scanning, CWPP and CSPM — in a single platform."
The report names Aqua Security as one of three example vendors that converge CWPP and CSPM capabilities.
Aqua Enterprise is the company's flagship cloud native security offering, incorporating numerous enhancements for cloud workload protection, and now available as a full SaaS offering or self-hosted. With access to the full spectrum of Aqua's products from a single, integrated console, Aqua Enterprise secures the build processes, the underlying infrastructure, and running workloads whether they are deployed as VMs, containers, or serverless functions. The recent release of Aqua Enterprise introduces several new elements:
