Cloud Workload Protection Platform (CWPP)
Gartner defines Cloud Workload Protection Platforms as:
“Workload-centric security products that protect server workloads in hybrid, multi-cloud data center environments. CWPPs provide consistent visibility and control for physical machines, virtual machines (VMs), containers and serverless workloads, regardless of location. CWPP offerings protect workloads using a combination of system integrity protection, application control, behavioral monitoring, intrusion prevention and optional antimalware protection at runtime. CWPP offerings should also include scanning for workload risk proactively in the development pipeline.”
