Microsoft Azure Security
Serverless platforms, like Microsoft Azure, is all about allowing developers to move faster than ever before. Microsoft Azure allows organizations to reduce development costs while releasing functionalities quickly, without worrying about infrastructure and scaling. However, with this new velocity and deployment approach, new challenges arise resulting in DevSecOps teams feeling like they are losing the control that they need to ensure their applications are running efficiently and securely. How teams evaluate Microsoft Azure security in light of this velocity is paramount.
Developers, DevOps & AppSec Unite!
The move to cloud-native creates new security challenges. While developers are empowered and expected to move faster, their impact on security is getting bigger, with more control over security configuration, and fewer control points between them and production. The sec/dev divide has been a problem for years, and in cloud-native applications it has become untenable. To resolve that, organizations need to create cross-functional teams to achieve balance, and ultimately, get security into their CI/CD pipeline to prevent and block potential risks at the speed of serverless.
Advantage of Microsoft Azure Migration
In the attempt of separating good behavior from bad behavior, security tools often struggled to gain visibility into traditional applications that may have comprised a handful of VMs or containers. The Microsoft Azure Platform provides teams with not only agility to develop quickly, but also an opportunity for greater visibility into the inner workings of the application, and the context within which each action is taken, providing for much more nuanced security and protection.
Automate Microsoft Azure Security with Protego
The Protego Serverless Security Platform automates serverless application security for Microsoft Azure from development to runtime. Integrating into the existing CI/CD pipeline allows organizations to shift left, and results in saving developers and DevSecOps teams to improve security and save time and resources by automating application hardening. Protego Proact analyzes function code to create a profile for least-privilege function permissions. In addition, Protego Proact will continuously scans the serverless infrastructure during runtime, including functions and databases, to help increase modern-application security posture. The platform provides clear visibility to the structure of the application, and details what changes need to be made to improve the security. Protego observes and provides visibility to the security relevant events that security operators need to be aware of. Protego Defend provides Elastic Defense which takes advantage of all of the posture and intelligence data that is gathered in real time, using it to continuously evaluate which security mechanisms are useful at any given moment. Maintaining control and security of your Microsoft Azure applications requires a paradigm shift, and with Protego you can be up and running in less than 20 minutes.
