Automating Server Workload Security with CloudPassage Halo
The combination of as-a-service delivery models for infrastructure, platforms, and software with micro- services architectures, including containers, has punctuated the role of technology as a pillar of business agility. While these paradigm shifts create new cybersecurity and compliance challenges, the DevOps movement represents an opportunity to move security from a bolt- on to an integrated, immutable aspect of the modern world of infrastructure-as-code.
While adoption of cloud services is broad, existing infrastructures and legacy application stacks are not switched off overnight. They remain a critical aspect of multidimensional hybrid cloud environments. This hybrid reality of the modern data center requires a hybrid approach to security, one that centralizes policy and monitoring across disparate infrastructures to enable the agility provided by adding elastic, on-demand cloud services into the IT mix.
