We are proud to announce that Runecast has been awarded Frost & Sullivan's 2023 European New Product Innovation Award in the CNAPP industry. This award is a nod to Runecast's strong overall performance and its dedication to enhancing the user experience through its AI-driven, proactive security solutions.

“Being awarded by Frost & Sullivan is a significant achievement for Runecast,” said Runecast Chief Product Officer Markus Strauss. “This acknowledgment is a testament to our relentless pursuit of excellence and innovation for our customers requiring proactive solutions in the cloud security domain.”

Runecast's receipt of this award  underscores its role as a frontrunner in the CNAPP market, delivering solutions that effectively protect cloud-native applications for customers with demanding IT environments.

Commitment to Innovation and User Experience

Frost & Sullivan’s 2023 European New Product Innovation Award in the CNAPP industry is given to companies demonstrating excellence in growth strategy, implementation, and technological innovation. It recognizes our strong overall performance and our commitment to enhancing the user experience with our AI-driven solutions.

Runecast’s on-prem CNAPP runs in an entirely air-gapped environment with offline updates, which is a highly attractive proposition and an answer for companies operating in highly regulated industries, such as government, defense, banking, financial services and insurance, healthcare, and service providers. This is in contrast to its competitors who mainly offer CNAPP solutions with a SaaS-based deployment (particularly those without physical computing facilities in Europe) which makes it difficult for customers to comply with regulations like GDPR.”

Runecast runs either as SaaS or on-premises, standing apart from other solutions by also supporting air-gapped environments. This flexibility makes Runecast a versatile choice for organizations dealing with the most sensitive data in highly regulated verticals.

This recognition from Frost & Sullivan highlights Runecast's significant contributions to the CNAPP industry and its unwavering commitment to advancing cloud application security.

Why Runecast Stands Out

Runecast has been pivotal in securing our position as a leader in the CNAPP space. It is an AI-driven platform that provides actionable predictive analytics for complex IT environments. Our technology is designed to preemptively identify and mitigate risks, ensuring that cloud-native applications are secure and compliant. This proactive approach to cloud security is one of several aspects that set us apart and is the cornerstone of our product innovation. One of the particular areas where Runecast excels is vulnerability assessment and management.

Vulnerability Management Made Simple

In 2023, Runecast was recommended by CISA for being one of the first vendors to provide automated checks against CISA's Known Exploited Vulnerabilities (KEVs) Catalog. Additionally, Runecast was recognized as a representative vendor in Gartner’s 2023 Market Guide for Vulnerability Assessment.

Runecast's automated, AI-powered prioritization capabilities for a risk-based approach to vulnerability management enable rapid deployment and up-to-date vulnerability coverage, so organizations can focus on the most critical issues first – and not waste time on false positives.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to our customers, partners, and the entire Runecast team for their support and dedication. This achievement is a collective success, and we look forward to continuing our journey as a leader in the CNAPP industry.
