Cloud-native development and modern DevOps practices enable faster development cycles, high scalability, and smoother maintenance processes, yet, they also introduce new complexities for security teams. The introduction of IaC and containerized workloads, for example, brought exceptional flexibility and control to development teams and increased software stability and development velocity. However, they introduced new application and infrastructure risks for the security team.
There is a way for security teams to benefit from these new practices and technologies, plus keep pace with increased development velocity, without compromising their ability to govern and manage the risk. With the Dazz Remediation Cloud, security and development teams are able to embrace the inherent modularity of cloud resources, such as containerized workloads and cloud development, while also efficiently resolving thousands of high-risk issues that seem to pile up in the backlog continuously.
Containerized workloads give development teams more control over the infrastructure and operating system levels of their applications, which dramatically increases both the velocity of development and the stability of their applications. From a security perspective, they also introduce fantastic opportunities for easy remediation and easy patching of security flaws, such as the following examples:
Modern cloud-native development practices are evolving at a meteoric pace. Keeping pace with the ever-changing landscape of technologies is overwhelming for security teams. On top of this, they face the onerous job of governing and securing distributed development teams, disparate tech stacks, and complicated infrastructure environments.
Building a security program that harnesses modern SDLC for risk reduction instead of fighting modern SDLC is an efficient and smart way for security teams to keep up with the cloud migration. Utilizing the Dazz platform, and specifically, its root cause analysis engine, reduces friction and removes silos between security and development teams by enabling both teams to prioritize the alerts and backlog that matter most. By using “shift left of cloud” insights, teams can fix code issues faster, thereby reducing the window of exposure time and also the cost of lost developer productivity.
