State of Cloud Native Application Security
How cloud native adoption transforms the way organizations defend against security threats
With misconfigurations and known vulnerabilities being the top concern and incident driver, we need to rethink how dev teams should prioritize security work . When a developer is responsible for securing the full cloud native app, it’s often more important they tackle these security hygiene concerns than the vulnerabilities in the app’s custom code which most security programs start with.

Now is the time to be more vigilant as we adopt Cloud Native technology. It’s no surprise that cloud computing allows us to go fast as a business but it also lowers the difficulty of making mistakes. We need more tools and training than ever before and this report underscores that.

Comprehensive automation adoption doesn’t just mean you can deliver applications and infrastructure more quickly and reliably, it also enables you to start remediating critical security issues as soon as they’re identified. On top of this, automation serves as an API between teams, making pervasive security testing possible across the entire software delivery lifecycle.
Nigel Kersten Field CTO, Puppet
Automation is often referred to as a way to achieve faster delivery. Yet, automation also achieves better delivery as it provides faster feedback. This allows security to scale their advice and knowledge. By making that feedback actionable and self servicing, developers feel empowered as they can take ownership of their code quality.
