Hillstone Networks was acknowledged for its CloudArmour solution in Gartner® “Emerging Tech: Security – Adoption Growth Insights for Cloud Workload Protection Platforms”


Digital transformation continues to drive enterprises towards security solutions that can meet them where their workloads run. According to Gartner’s latest research on CWPP titled, Emerging Tech: Security — Adoption Growth Insights for Cloud Workload Protection Platforms(March 2023), Hillstone Networks was acknowledged for its CloudArmour product as a vendor in CWPP.

The adoption of CWPP is continuing to increase. According to the report, “adoption interest shows a minor increase between 2021 and 2022 at 4.4%.” Driving this adoption is the strong mind share in CWPP from highly-regulated industries. “The finance, communications and government industries have demonstrated larger mind share (more than 10% of the total mind share, respectively).” According to Gartner, “The healthcare industry also demonstrated signs of recovery from the height of the pandemic, with higher mind share and adoption interest in CWPP compared to the previous version of this document.”

Some of the Key Findings and Recommendations from the 2023 Gartner Report:

  • “Finance, communications and government are the industries most consistently interested in adoption of CWPPs, along with enterprises with more than $30 billion in revenue.”
  • “Technical staff and services buyer personas need to understand the differences in CWPP functionality for addressing diverse cloud workloads.”
  • “Geographically, demand growth for CWPPs is highest in Asia/Pacific, while demand in mature markets such as North America is shifting.”
  • “Address use cases within adjacent capabilities, such as CSPM and CNAPPs, by incorporating capabilities such as cloud configuration checks for compliance and attack path analysis to support detection and response use cases.”

Hillstone Networks is delighted to be included in this research.
