How Containers and Microservices Change Security


Cloud-native applications and infrastructure require a radically different approach to security. Keep these best practices in mind.

Today organizations large and small are exploring the adoption of cloud-native software technologies. “Cloud-native” refers to an approach that packages software within standardized units called containers, arranges those units into microservices that interface with each other to form applications, and ensures that running applications are fully automated for greater speed, agility, and scalability.

Because this approach fundamentally changes how software is built, deployed, and run, it also fundamentally changes how software needs to be protected. Cloud-native applications and infrastructure create several new challenges for security professionals, who will need to establish new security programs that support their organization’s use of cloud-native technologies.
