Platform Security – PaaS & Hosting – Trey Ford – ESW #221



– What security features does Heroku offer that the customer can control and how have these evolved over time?
– How do you balance the security of the application, with the security of the deployment, with the security of the platform?
– What are some tips and/or advice for deploying applications and keeping them secure during the lifecycle? (e.g. as a developer I may run applications in a secure environment, but then down the line someone runs my container with —privileged and exposes a security hole).

The goal being our audience learns what to consider when choosing a platform (or platforms) to run applications from a security perspective. Visit https://www.securityweekly.com/esw for all the latest episodes!
