Shifting Cloud Security from Speedbump to Digital Accelerator.

Watch this webinar to learn three best practices that will help you secure your journey to the cloud. Find out how making policies accessible and adaptable, and processes automated, will help ensure security teams and developers collaborate – shifting security from a speedbump to a digital accelerator.

Security policies must be accessible

Application developers want to develop software. They don’t want to be distracted by security requirements. If security teams provide developers guidelines (guardrails) that allow developers to understand boundaries necessary to ensure their applications remain compliant with established security policies, developers will bring secure applications to market faster. Guardrails allow developers to innovate - without sacrificing security and compliance.

Security policies must be automated

Cloud environments are all about agility and automation. By automating security processes, misconfigurations and policy violations can be detected in real-time. Developers can be alerted, and necessary corrections can be made – before applications are deployed or expose risk.  By automating security processes IT can enforce polices without becoming a roadblock or obstacle for development teams. By plugging into DevOps automated processes and environments, security policies can be automated to ensure applications are secure throughout the build-ship-run continuum. Automation also removes error prone manual processes. 

Security must be adaptable

Modern application architectures – such as microservices, serverless functions – enable developers to rapidly build, test and deploy enhancements, fixes and even new capabilities several times a day. The unprecedented rate of change requires security to design, plan and implement strategies that ensure security dynamically adapts to application changes, without losing visibility or control.
