Why everyone from the investor to the C-suite should consider container security

Why everyone from investors to the C-suite should consider container security Over the past few years, virtually all of the most innovative enterprise firms – from multinational banks like Goldman Sachs, to cutting-edge technology companies like Google – have set out to modernize the way they deliver software applications through containers and microservices architectures. By breaking down large applications into smaller, composable pieces, software developers and those in charge of managing applications have discovered that containers – and the microservices approach they enable – allow for software development that is far more agile, resilient, and efficient than traditional monolithic approaches.

Protecting Against Containerized Web App Attacks

WAF the heck do I do to protect against attacks on my container-based web applications? The hackers who want your organization’s valuable data will invariably target your web applications. Despite the steady increase in distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks and ransomware, web application attacks represent the most common cause of data breaches.1 The vast majority of these attacks are executed by botnets, operated by organized crime2. Their goals: stealing credentials, growing the size of the botnet, and, of course, exfiltrating information that can be used for financial gain.

StackRox on SecurityWeekly

Shortly following our launch, I was a guest on Paul Asadoorian’s Startup Security Weekly show. In this episode, hear about how Sameer and I conceived the idea for the company, how we talked to investors about our ideas, and why our platform uniquely addresses the challenges of enterprises who are embracing containerization and microservices. We also discuss how enterprises are using StackRox to build security into the fabric of their infrastructures as they operationalize their use of containers and microservices.

Protecting our Nation

I’ve worked to align government and commercial cybersecurity initiatives throughout my career, from the White House to Silicon Valley. It’s crystal clear to me that we’re stronger when we work together. I’ve been speaking frequently on this topic recently, as co-chair of the CSIS Cyber Policy Task Force for the 45th President, ally of the Hewlett Foundation, advisor to the UC Berkeley Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity, and affiliate of the Stanford University Center for Security and International Cooperation.

Introducing StackRox: A Modern Security Platform for the Microservices Age

The microservices revolution is underway. Businesses using microservices have reduced their development time by as much as 75%, fueling software innovation and competitive advantage. Today more than half of all enterprises using microservices and container technologies like Docker and Kubernetes are running them in production. And a vibrant ecosystem of more than 125 companies including Amazon, Microsoft, Google, Red Hat, IBM, CoreOS, Mesosphere, and others, continues to grow rapidly.
