Hillstone Networks Included in 2022 Gartner® Emerging Technologies: Adoption Growth Insights for Cloud Workload Protection Platforms Report


We think it is an honor for Hillstone Networks to be included in 2022 Gartner “Emerging Technologies: Adoption Growth Insights for Cloud Workload Protection Platforms” report. 

Gartner Report Key Takeaways

  • The adoption of cloud-native services has led to a change in adoption of cloud workload protection platforms and adjacent capabilities.
  • The government sector has the most interest in cloud workload protection platforms. However, other highly regulated industries like finance, healthcare, energy and utilities have substantial mind share and adoption interest.
  • Technical staff are often the main buyer personas and need to understand the differences in CWPP functionality in addressing diverse cloud workloads that require technical proficiency of the cloud-native ecosystem such as managed Kubernetes service and serverless functions.
  • CWPP product leaders should attract technical buyers by differentiating on capabilities that will meet technical requirements like cloud workload-type coverage from containers to serverless functions, nonfunctional requirements like deployment strategies, and alignment with CNAPPs.
