Cloud-Native Application Security Challenges

Pubblicato il

Application security has historically taken a back seat to application delivery. Traditional IT security teams view themselves as gatekeepers; they must do their jobs correctly or their organizations face increased risk. They incorporate high security standards into every operation, but achieving these standards takes time, testing and iterations. Development teams fret because this slows application […]

Consistent Security Meets Continuous Deployment on Azure

Pubblicato il

It wasn’t that long ago when applications were monolithic pieces of software and updating them required a formal software release. Most businesses released updates once or twice a year— a very agile company might update once a quarter.  But as cloud computing evolved, a revolution began in software development. Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) became the […]

The (Security) Dangers of Over Confidence

Pubblicato il

Per Radware’s 2019 survey findings, the state of web application security is somewhat scattered as organizations are deploying multiple solutions without a clear strategy to determine who is ultimately responsible to drive decision-making. Surprisingly, organizations did not recognize that this scattered approach still left their organizations vulnerable to attack, and confidence remained high among respondents’ […]

The Evolution of Application Development

Pubblicato il

The evolution of application development has gone through many stages, and each has had its challenges. It started with monolithic code, which was difficult to regression-test, and was essentially snowflake construction that required longer development cycles. We then moved to dedicated/embedded modules written within applications that made testing easier and created the beginnings of reusability. […]

Agile Security Is Now A Reality

Pubblicato il

Businesses are looking to optimize and accelerate their Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC), in order to improve their operational efficiency and gain a competitive edge. Service mesh is the popular architecture where monolithic applications are broken down into microservices, becoming the common delivery model providing for better agility, elasticity and scale. Companies that deploy service mesh […]
