In fact, not even a modern endpoint security solution can, on its own, cover the full spectrum of cloud-workload protection requirements, use cases and workload types. This has opened the flood-gates to a new breed of cybersecurity solutions called “Cloud Workload Protection Platforms” (CWPPs), and the market is ripe for the picking, according to Gartner.
