How Cloud Native computing confronts security and demands a response | WalkingTree Technologies

With cloud-native development, businesses are able to give more value to more people through more channels and at higher velocities. Cloud-native blends agile development with DevOps automation and modern microservices architecture. It’s revolutionizing the delivery of value to customers.

Cloud-native’s goals of cost reduction are fundamentally changing the security’s status. If security is going to have a future in the cloud-native world, then the nature of security has to change. This means removing waste and optimizing customer value while still reducing security risk.

Eliminate waste that blocks value — Cloud-native development extends the agile process with DevOps and microservices. DevOps removes everything that gets in the way of deploying customer value. This process is called as CI/CD (Continuous integration and continuous deployment). DevOps, with CI/CD, moves software in the form of microservices from developers to customers with minimal wait times.

Eliminate the waste of waiting — Containers are desirable to many developers because they’re portable and Orchestration creates resilience. Why is this important? Because portability and resilience eliminate the need for customer wait times. Developers create software, and it moves rapidly to the customer.

Security induces waiting — Eliminating exploitable vulnerabilities isn’t unimportant, vulnerability backlogs are software waste. Aging vulnerability backlogs can also pass exploitable risks onto customers, furthering waste. Cloud-native’s can eliminate single points of failure with rapid micro-releases cuts.
