According to Gartner, Inc., “Optimal security of cloud-native applications requires an integrated approach that starts in development and extends to runtime protection. SRM (security risk management) leaders should evaluate emerging cloud-native application protection platforms that provide a complete life cycle approach for security.”1

Ermetic uses an agentless approach to efficiently scan workloads – including virtual machines, container images, runtime containers and serverless functions – for critical risks. The platform enables organizations to secure their cloud and maintain compliance by detecting vulnerabilities, exposed secrets, sensitive data, malware and misconfigurations. Stand-alone Cloud Workload Protection solutions can generate a large volume of alerts. In isolation, determining which are most serious and need immediate attention is manually intensive and time consuming. In contrast, Ermetic puts workload risks in context, automatically prioritizing and facilitating remediation.

“Protecting cloud workloads from breaches requires a continuous and full stack assessment of installed software, the operating system, configurations, access entitlements, suspicious activity and more,” said Sivan Krigsman, Chief Product Officer at Ermetic. “With our platform’s unmatched, end-to-end insight into cloud workloads, Ermetic enables security and DevSecOps teams to prioritize remediation by identifying resources that are exposed to threats or have the largest blast radius.”
