In this podcast, Ariful Huq, Director of Product Management at Aporeto discusses their unique approach to decoupling security from IP infrastructure and relying on the identity of an application to define security policies.
Cloud native platforms, such as Red Hat OpenShift, enable enterprises to adopt agile development practices with micro-services dramatically improving application deployment velocity – an important business imperative.
Security practices need to evolve to embrace these agile development and rapid application deployment practices. Existing practices requiring security teams to open up ip addresses, ports and protocols hamper continuous application deployment.
DevOps, DevSecOps and security teams can now define policy-as-code allowing easing integration into continuous deployment pipelines. The end result enables enterprises to innovate rapidly while ensuring governance and compliance for applications.
