Aqua Security unveils enterprise cloud native security SaaS in APAC

Pure-play cloud native security provider, Aqua Security, has announced the general availability of cloud native security SaaS in Singapore, serving the broader APAC region.

This allows customers to take advantage of the data sovereignty, platform security and flexibility provided by the SaaS service to prevent cloud native attacks before they happen.

Aqua customers in government, banking, financial services as well as other regulated sectors can leverage the service for comprehensive cloud native security, compliance and risk management, through an in-region service that addresses their data sovereignty and governance requirements.

The SaaS service enables customers to adopt cloud native security best practices as they expand their cloud native footprint and DevOps pipelines.

The general availability launch of the SaaS builds on two services already being utilised by customers: Aqua’s CyberCenter threat intelligence and vulnerability information database for scanning, and Dynamic Threat Analysis (DTA). Both allow DevOps teams to shift further left and incorporate security into their CI pipelines to identify malware and potentially malicious code.

The APAC SaaS region now offers the full enterprise suite as part of Aqua’s Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP), including software supply chain security and shift-left risk-centric vulnerability management, security issue categorisation and runtime protection.

Enforcement of runtime protection and monitoring policies is available across containers, including managed container platforms, serverless and virtual machines in public cloud and on-premises.  The full suite of functionality allows customers to solve their cloud native security needs in a single platform.

“We have a number of existing public sector customers in the region, and we are committed to meeting our customer needs and requirements,” said Rob D’Amico, AVP of APJ at Aqua. “We’re seeing a surging interest from customers for an integrated and unified platform that protects the full cloud native application lifecycle from code to runtime. Eliminating multiple point solutions drives down operational cost and complexity.”

Aqua Grows Regional Partnerships

As part of the global investment, Aqua is growing its partnerships with technology alliance leaders in the region. APAC customers, particularly those in highly regulated industries, can keep their data local and adhere to compliance regulations.

Aqua Security’s platform is both SOC Type II and ISO27001 compliant.
