Aqua Security partners with CMD Solutions to drive growth on AWS in Australia

Pure-play cloud native security provider Aqua Security, has announced a strategic partnership with CMD Solutions (CMD) to support customers looking to secure their cloud native applications, from build through to runtime, on AWS.

This partnership enables Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers to protect the full software lifecycle of their applications and stop cloud native attacks.

CMD is a dedicated AWS practice, combining the best technologies in cloud with outstanding technical and customer service.  They have hundreds of delighted customers and successfully executed solutions within the region and understand that a properly implemented security solution is essential to enable businesses to move at the speed of cloud.

“Having the right partners in each country is absolutely key to achieving the best outcomes for our customers,” said Rob D’Amico, Area Vice President for APJ, Aqua Security.

“Not every partner who understands cloud understands security, and vice versa.  CMD understands cloud native security and it’s validated by industry awards and customer feedback. We consider them to be the premier AWS consulting partner in Australia, and we are thrilled to unite the leader in cloud native security with the leader in service delivery on AWS.”

Aqua Security is an AWS Advanced Technology Partner with the AWS Container competency. The AWS Competency Program validates and promotes AWS Partners with demonstrated AWS technical expertise and proven customer success.

Aqua enables AWS customers to securely build, scale and automate cloud native applications and ensure that controls, configurations and account settings conform to a broad set of compliance requirements.

“It’s essential we partner with technology providers that are leaders in their domain, solve real world problems and add value to a customer’s business.  Aqua Security ticks all those boxes,” said Adam Durbin, Co-CEO at CMD Solutions.

“The Aqua unified platform secures every stage of the software development lifecycle, from the software supply chain through to runtime monitoring and policy enforcement. The ability to integrate these functionalities seamlessly into existing CI/CD and SIEM workflows means we can provide tailored outcomes to our customers, no matter which step of the DevSecOps journey they are on.”

With broad native AWS integration, Aqua facilitates security and DevOps collaboration for the cloud native journey, embeds security into AWS build and artifact pipelines, validates and remediates AWS and Kubernetes infrastructure controls, and protects workloads running on advanced services through behavioural analysis.

To support the growth of regional partnerships, Chris Zamagias recently joined Aqua Security as Head of Channels for APAC. “I’m extremely excited to be able to work with first-class consultancy and delivery partners to ensure long-term, ongoing success for our joint customers,” said Zamagias. “We’re strategic with our partnerships and base them upon expertise and customer success history. CMD is one of the first fully Aqua certified, premier partners in our growing ecosystem.”

Aqua’s Security Enterprise solution is available via the AWS Marketplace, a curated digital catalogue that makes it easy for organizations to find, test, buy, and deploy  third-party software.
