  • Proactively extend CWPP testing into the CI/CD pipeline.
  • Extension into cloud security posture management (CSPM).
  • Make container protection capabilities a mandatory requirement in your CWPP evaluation (including for Kubernetes).
  • Support for workload EDR, behavioral monitoring, and threat detection and response.
