As organizations move more deeply into continuous development and deployment modalities, the importance of implementing continuous security behaviors becomes non-negotiable. Cloud environments undergo dramatic changes during deployments, auto-scaling events, and through natural growth. While static data center environments were simple enough to be evaluated by humans, the dynamic nature of cloud environments are too complex to adequately secure without automation. Your operational tools deliver continuous monitoring and alerting — why doesn’t your security suite?
Join DevOps.com Editor-in-Chief Alan Shimel, Andrew Storms, Vice President of Security Services at New Context, and Evident.io cofounder and CEO Tim Prendergast as they discuss why DevOps shops need to automate key functions in order to ensure their Cloud Infrastructure Security.
