Aqua Security, platform provider for securing container-based and cloud-native applications, announced that Hitachi Vantara has integrated Aqua security capabilities into the Hitachi Enterprise Cloud (HEC) Container Platform. HEC Container Platform delivers a public cloud experience for organisations that use data services, DevOps and microservices architectures on premises in a private or hybrid cloud. Hitachi Vantara selected the Aqua platform in part for its ability to deliver runtime security for multi-tenant cloud Container-as-a-Service environments.
