Snyk

Easily map Snyk vulnerabilities to Cortex services

Snyk is a developer-first, cloud native security platform that scans for vulnerabilities across code, dependencies, containers, and infrastructure as code. Snyk does a great job of surfacing vulnerabilities in your codebase, but it can often be challenging to map these issues back to actual services and their owners. Fortunately, Snyk’s robust API can be used to tune Snyk to integrate into solutions designed to help engineering teams understand and improve their service-oriented architecture.

5 OPA Deployment Performance Models for Microservices

If you’re responsible for a microservices app, you may be familiar with the idea of a “latency budget.” This is the maximum latency, measured as total request time, that you need for the app to work, in order to meet your SLAs and keep stakeholders happy. For a stock trading or financial services app, this budget might be the barest of microseconds.

How Microservices Impact Your App Security

An IBM survey of IT executives, developer executives, and developers found that 87% of microservices users agreed that microservices adoption is worthwhile. Microservices are popular with both technology leaders and developers, making them a highly effective tool for businesses of all sizes. Microservices have many uses, and security is one area where micro services can both help — and harm.

Tips for minimizing security risks in your microservices

Organizations are increasingly turning to microservices to facilitate their ongoing digital transformations. According to ITProPortal, more than three quarters (77%) of software engineers, systems and technical architects, engineers and decision makers said in a 2020 report that their organizations had adopted microservices. Almost all (92%) of those respondents reported a high level of success.

Microservices, Containers and Kubernetes in 10 minutes

What is a microservice? Should you be using microservices? How are microservices related to containers and Kubernetes? If these things keep coming up in your day-to-day and you need an overview in 10 minutes, this blog post is for you. Fundamentally, a microservice is just a computer program which runs on a server or a virtual computing instance and responds to network requests.

Microservices Architecture: Security Strategies and Best Practices

Over the past few years enterprises and industry leaders have been steadily adopting microservices to drive their business forward. At this point, companies like Amazon, and Google, to name a few, must agree that the microservices style of architecture is much more than a passing trend. Along with the many benefits of updating monolith systems to microservices architecture, there are also new security challenges that organizations need to address.

Using Open Policy Agent for cloud-native app authorization

How companies like Netflix, Pinterest, Yelp, Chef, and Atlassian use OPA for ‘who-and what-can-do-what’ application policy. In the cloud-native space, microservice architectures and containers are reshaping the way that enterprises build and deploy applications. They function, in a word, differently than traditional monolithic applications.

Why Microservices Require Unified Tools for Authorization

Cloud-native organizations embracing microservices are running into an unavoidable security question: how to handle microservice authorization controls? The central problem is this: unlike monolithic app structures, microservices architectures expose dozens more functionality through APIs, which can leave them vulnerable to attack.

7 best practices for microservices security

Microservices have refashioned the way modern apps are developed. Previously, monolithic architecture was used for app development. A monolithic app is made from a single unit with three parts: a database, a client-side UI that runs on the user’s system or browser, and a server-side app. But in microservices, an app consists of multiple units. Each of these units runs alone and connects via APIs.
