CloudPassage Named A Strong Performer in Cloud Workload Security by Top Independent Research Firm

Only offering to receive the highest scores possible in both the API-level connectivity and control for IaaS and PaaS, and containerization and container orchestration platform protection criteria

San Francisco, CA, December 17, 2019 - CloudPassage, a recognized pioneer in cloud infrastructure security, announced Forrester Research named it a Strong Performer in The Forrester Wave™: Cloud Workload Security evaluation, Q4 2019. When referring to the CloudPassage Halo cloud security platform, the report states, “We recommend the solution to those clients that need a single vendor for agent-based and agentless protections for guest OSes, AWS and Azure compute, and containers.”

Forrester evaluated 13 vendors and states In the Key Takeaways section, “As on-premises security suites technology becomes outdated and less effective to provide comprehensive support for cloud workloads, improved broad coverage support for guest/host OS; API-level connectivity to the infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) platform; and container orchestration and runtime platforms will dictate which providers lead the pack.”

Forrester Research evaluated CloudPassage Halo platform capabilities including Cloud Secure for cloud security posture management, Server Secure for cloud workload protection, and Container Secure for container security.
