Within the cloud security space, there are Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASBs), Cloud Workload Protection Platforms (CWPPs), and Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) tools. While these tools offer an over-lapping set of capabilities to each other, they do not provide all the capabilities required to perform the job of the other.
CWPPs are solutions primarily used to secure server workloads in public cloud IaaS environments. They commonly offer workloads configuration and vulnerability management, network segmentation; workload behavior monitoring; visibility; system integrity monitoring; container security risk mitigation, etc.
