As more organizations undergo digital transformation projects to modernize how they serve their customers, they need to make critical decisions about their applications. They can either transition their monolithic legacy applications to the cloud or re-architect their applications to modern, distributed applications that leverage the newer cloud-native frameworks like Istio and Envoy Proxy.
In this webcast, Paul Asadoorian and Matt Alderman will discuss the challenges of migrating legacy applications vs. rearchitecting applications to leverage new cloud native capabilities. Paul will discuss some of the real world challenges Security Weekly faced with our own internal application.
Jimmy Mesta, Director of Security Research at Signal Sciences, will discuss cloud native architectures, including service meshes, and how they can enable organizations to serve more customers, faster and at scale. However, speed to market and rapid release cycles can inadvertently de-emphasize security, putting an organization’s digital assets at risk.
Jimmy will then cover:
- What makes an app truly cloud native?
- How can security and ops teams get visibility into east-west traffic between services?
- What are effective approaches to securing apps utilizing cloud-native frameworks and potential situations to avoid?
