Understanding Cloud-Native Application Protection Platforms (CNAPP)
How and Why You Should Secure Your Cloud-Native Applications
A Cloud-Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) is a type of cloud security architecture designed to protect and secure cloud applications throughout your entire software development lifecycle, from development through production and workload. As organizations adopt more cloud-native applications and services throughout their enterprises, it’s critical to ensure teams have effective visibility into cloud-based environments with earlier detection of cloud-based risks. That’s why a growing number of organizations are integrating a CNAPP into their overall security strategy.
In this CNAPP knowledgebase, we take a closer look at what a cloud-native application platform is and how it can help your teams discover software flaws, vulnerabilities, misconfigurations and other security issues throughout your entire development process, shoring up your dynamic cloud environment while building confidence in your organization’s overall cybersecurity posture.

Enterprise Guide to Policy as Code: Design, Build, and Run-time
As your organization continues to adopt more cloud-native applications and build onto your existing cloud-native architecture, security becomes increasingly complex. Many organizations struggle shifting their legacy on-premises security practices to a cloud-native environment. But, the reality is traditional security approaches just don’t work for the dynamic nature of your cloud workload.
Now is the time to shift left and adopt security best practices meant for protecting your cloud and hybrid cloud/on-premises environments. It’s important these processes aren’t applied well-after cloud development and deployment. Instead, true security starts in the earliest planning phases and should be included throughout your software development lifecycle (SDLC) and into run-time.
With Tenable, you can adopt policy as code and infrastructure as code (IaC) to help secure and mature your modern cloud environments.
Gerenciamento de vulnerabilidades do código à nuvem
Cloud workloads are complex and dynamic, and they continuously introduce new risks into your environment. On top of that, legacy vulnerability management approaches don’t work well for cloud, making it challenging for some teams to keep up with those risks. However, it is necessary to move beyond those legacy practices and extend continuous vulnerability management into the cloud. This is more than just discovering and fixing vulnerabilities, but also includes finding and remediating software flaws and misconfigurations across your entire software development lifecycle. In this ebook, learn more about how adopting a cloud security posture management (CSPM) solution can help ensure confidence that you’ve built in security throughout your entire development process.

Seven Habits of Highly Effective DevSecOps Teams
Modern DevOps consist of an integrated team of operational, security and development professionals, who collaborate to ensure your cloud environments are secure. Unfortunately, some organizations struggle to build these teams in a way they work together most effectively, especially when faced with the complex and dynamic nature of the cloud. While there is no magic formula for success, there are seven core habits every DevOps team can work toward to ensure they’re prepared to face all challenges that exist within a dynamic cloud environment. These core competencies include the technical, cultural and organizational habits to ensure your teams can effectively manage cloud security, compliance and operational risks. Check out this white paper to learn more about these habits and how to apply them to your teams.
