“When practitioners fail to implement a holistic approach with protecting their workloads at runtime, they are opening up their environments to attackers, since even the most complete ‘shift left’ vulnerability and malware detection cannot prevent zero-day attacks and administrator errors,” said Amir Jerbi, cofounder and CTO at Aqua.
Aqua Security’s new cloud-native application protection platform leverages a unified console to ease the journey from scanning and visibility to workload protection in cloud-native environments. The platform reduces administrative burden and allows security teams to start with scanning and cloud security posture management, and then add in sandboxing capabilities and workload protection as needed.
The risk that open source components pose to applications has less to do with the component itself than the supply chain that supports it, asserted Tsvi Korren, field CTO at Aqua Security. “It all comes down to the degree of governance and oversight, which open source projects often lack,” he told TechNewsWorld.
Ninety-seven percent of cloud-native security practitioners are broadly unaware of essential container security principles, according to a report from Aqua Security.
Only 3% of respondents recognize that a container, in and of itself, is not a security boundary, indicating that the default security capabilities of containers are overestimated, according to the 2021 Cloud Native Security Survey from Aqua Security.
Aqua Security announced the availability of its new Aqua Platform, with a unified console to ease the journey from scanning and visibility to workload protection in cloud native environments.
“The moves Aqua has been making telegraph a good vision of where innovation and cloud can head… without leaving security behind as an afterthought.” – Constellation Research Inc. analyst Liz Miller
