SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Palo Alto Networks (NASDAQ: PANW), the global cybersecurity leader, today announced that its flagship cloud security platform, Prisma® Cloud, has been recognized as a leader in the inaugural Frost Radar™: Cloud-native Application Protection Platforms (CNAPP), 2022. According to Frost & Sullivan, "Palo Alto Networks is one of the first vendors in the market that can provide a full-stack CNAPP platform that delivers all aspects of security for the cloud-native applications." Being named a leader in the Frost Radar report continues Prisma Cloud's industry recognition, which includes:

With 69% of organizations hosting more than half of their workloads in the cloud, this report comes at a vital time for companies weighing security solutions. As the industry's only complete code-to-cloud CNAPP, Prisma Cloud delivers continuous visibility and threat prevention throughout the application lifecycle. Trusted by more than 1,900 customers globally, Prisma Cloud secures over 1.5 billion cloud assets, protects over 2.5 million workloads and processes over 2 billion events every day.

"To be recognized as a leader in the industry's first comprehensive global evaluation of the CNAPP market is an honor," said Ankur Shah, senior vice president, Prisma Cloud, Palo Alto Networks. "Multiple point solutions deployed alongside each other is no longer an effective approach to secure cloud applications. As companies increasingly move to the cloud, they need a unified approach that can address every stage of the application lifecycle. Continually anticipating our customers' needs has allowed us to create an award-winning cloud security platform designed to support every organization, regardless of where they are in their cloud journey."

According to the report: "Prisma Cloud is one of the most comprehensive and marketable CNAPP platforms, providing full security stack protection for cloud environments, including DevOps security, Infrastructure as Code (IaC), serverless security, Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM), Cloud Workload Protection Platform (CWPP), Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM) and Cloud Network Security and Segmentation (CNWS)." Additionally, Frost & Sullivan expects Palo Alto Networks to "become the largest CNAPP vendor in terms of revenue in the next 1-3 years." 

"As a leading CNAPP provider, Palo Alto Networks Prisma Cloud equips organizations with the necessary capabilities to secure the entire application lifecycle from code to cloud," said Anh Tien Vu, Industry Principal, Cybersecurity, at Frost & Sullivan. "Organizations would be wise to adopt Prisma Cloud as the comprehensive platform provides in-depth visibility and continuous threat prevention to combat rising cloud attacks."

Prisma Cloud was among 14 additional vendors that Frost & Sullivan evaluated for their ability to protect cloud-native applications throughout the application development lifecycle. The report measures vendors' growth as well as innovation.
