Compliance hasn't been something that can be easily automated, since most of the regulations are wordy documents that require an administrator to inspect the system. Lack of automation means that compliance becomes a hurdle to a secure system, rather than a validation.
Container images will soon underpin all of our mission critical applications. Therefore, we must ensure that we are using the highest quality containers images at every stage of the development cycle on through to production.
Applications, and the infrastructure that they run on, are rapidly changing as new computing models are introduced. New models, like virtualization, cloud, containers, DevOps, and mode 1/mode 2 applications, each introduce new capabilities and new complexities into organizations.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is starting to be broadly adopted across industries, fueled by decreasing costs in computing, ubiquitous connectivity, and the rise of cloud computing.
The intelligent gateway for Internet of Things (IoT) systems is based on the principle of pushing as much computing to the edge as possible, removing the need to ship massive data to the cloud, or datacenter for real-time processing as required by industrial applications.
SELinux is one of the key security features within Linux. It is a foundational part of many modern technologies like containers. With a history of more than 15 years, SELinux is well known among system administrators—yet too often not activated on outside facing, production systems.
Rarely does middleware security enter the conversation, but it should.
Identity management is a complex area. Doing it wrong could lead to constant problems, outages, and a resource drain.
Identity management and authentication are core elements of the security fabric that connects all layers of the modern enterprise.
Infrastructure managers are constantly asked to push the envelope in how they deliver cloud environments. In addition to speed, scale, and flexibility, they are increasingly focused on both security and operational management and visibility as adoption increases within their organizations.
