D2iQ, the leading enterprise Kubernetes provider for smart cloud-native applications, today announced a partnership with Aqua Security, the largest pure-play cloud-native security company. The combined solution enables organizations to create a seamless DevSecOps experience that accelerates the deployment of secure smart cloud-native applications.
Through this partnership, organizations can now run Aqua’s Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) on the D2iQ Kubernetes Platform (DKP), enhancing the security of containerized workloads, driving faster and more secure development and release cycles, and enabling a mature DevSecOps approach.
With Aqua on DKP, organizations can automate and simplify DevSecOps to reduce risk, enhance workload management, and ultimately stop cloud-native attacks. The partnership enables enterprises to more effectively secure cloud-native application development, deployment, and IT operations by eliminating threats and aligning security with regulatory requirements, as well as accelerating time to market.
“Aqua and D2iQ both place immense importance on stopping attacks across the cloud-native application lifecycle, from development to production,” said Dror Davidoff, co-founder and CEO, Aqua Security. “The combined power of DKP’s automation capabilities and Aqua’s full lifecycle platform enables organizations to seamlessly adopt Kubernetes and do so with the assurance of end-to-end security built specifically for cloud-native applications.”
D2iQ’s “Kubernetes in the Enterprise” survey found that respondents who were moving Kubernetes workloads into production environments considered security and environment reliability two of their top challenges. With these challenges in mind, D2iQ and Aqua’s joint solution will help organizations automate operations and enhance their security posture. While DKP focuses on simplifying Kubernetes complexities and granting operational insights for easier management, Aqua secures these processes from beginning to end, with the combined technologies creating a seamless DevSecOps experience.
“With more and more organizations adopting Kubernetes for mission-critical workloads, we are seeing an increase in concern around the security of cloud-native applications,” said Tobi Knaup, CEO of D2iQ. “When delivering cloud-native applications, organizations must balance these concerns with the need for speed and agility. With this new partnership, D2iQ and Aqua offer a unique solution that provides organizations with agility, speed, and enhanced security to quickly and securely achieve Day-2 success.”
