About Workload Protection


As explained in Getting Started with Aqua Platform, Aqua Security's Enterprise solutions provide comprehensive security for cloud-native applications: build, infrastructure, and workloads. There are two editions of Enterprise:

  • SaaS (software-as-a-service): The core infrastructure and services of Aqua Platform are deployed and maintained by Aqua Security. 
  • Self-Hosted: Deployed and maintained by you in your own environment. This edition is also referred to as "on-premises" or simply "on-prem". This edition was formerly called "CSP".


The Workload Protection module is part of the Aqua Enterprise SaaS Edition. It provides complete security for cloud-native applications.


What's in the "Workload Protection" documentation category?


The folder called Workload Protection Essentials is the starting place for most of the documentation in the Workload Protection module. This includes a functional overview, which contains links to more comprehensive information in the Aqua Enterprise Documentation Portal.
