Securing Cloud Environments Using CNAPPWiz Co-Founder, CTO Ami Luttwak on Why CNAPP Is a Game Changer for Security Teams
In recent years, a wide range of organizations have made unprecedented migrations to cloud. But as businesses increasingly rely on cloud-based technologies, the need to mitigate cybersecurity threats has never been greater. Is CNAPP the solution to defending against adversaries in the cloud?
Cloud-native application protection platforms, or CNAPPs, are a relatively new category of cloud security solutions designed to provide enhanced protection to cloud environments and workloads.
"CNAPP is not just a technology; it is a whole new approach to security in this highly dynamic, complicated, agile world of cloud," said Ami Luttwak, co-founder and CTO at Wiz. "The difference CNAPP is making is to help companies and security teams effectively use cloud - but without impacting their security and risk profile."
In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2023, Luttwak also discusses:
- How adversaries are leveraging the power of cloud;
- Why cloud security requires a collaborative approach across the organization;
- Lessons learned from the CNAPP journey.
