Infrastructure as code (IaC) has become the de-facto method for dealing with infrastructure at scale. This codification of infrastructure configurations lets software development teams create version-controlled, reusable configurations. Moreover, it enables integrating infrastructure management as a part of the delivery pipeline.

DevOps has been the methodology of choice among developers for over a decade. No doubt, it’s proven its efficiency and ability to speed up processes while uniting teams by promoting open communication and shared responsibility. But will GitOps steal the spotlight? We’re exploring the answer in today’s post by looking at these two methodologies’ similarities and differences, advantages, and limitations.

Imagine having to manually provision and configure every device in a large corporation. Then visualize the upgrade process. How about patching? Then, picture ensuring conformity on every device. Next, add some enterprise-wide IT governance changes that must be implemented. The process would be daunting, to say the least, every time.

Rapid and constantly-evolving software development cycles have increased the need for reliable and fast infrastructure changes. Thus manually carrying out infrastructure changes has become an unscalable process – which is what Infrastructure as Code (IaC) tools are here to solve. They enable teams to codify their infrastructure configurations and integrate them directly into their CI/CD pipelines.

Vulnerabilities found in application platforms and third-party libraries have drawn growing attention to application security in the last few years, putting pressure on DevOps teams to detect and resolve vulnerabilities in their Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC). Take the NVD (National Vulnerability Database), which tracks and records all significant vulnerabilities published and disclosed by software vendors.

The statistics support Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella’s claim that “every company is a software company.” The average enterprise was already deploying 464 custom applications back in 2017, and that number has likely been growing for the past five years with apps designed to meet unique business needs and support daily tasks and processes as they increasingly move online.

It is rare nowadays to hear of a business strategy that doesn’t entail a cloud strategy. So it comes as no surprise that 85% of organizations are expected to embrace a cloud-first principle by 2025, as estimated by Gartner. But migrating all your organization’s data, applications, and business processes to a new environment can be daunting.

Despite growing awareness and prioritization of cybersecurity, close to 22,000 vulnerabilities were published in 2021 alone. This concerning number proves that awareness and a willingness to invest in cybersecurity aren’t always enough to protect your organization’s network, and that network vulnerability is far from a problem of the past. To protect your networks, you need to continually monitor and assess their potential vulnerabilities to guarantee security.

The flip side of ubiquitous digital transformation and increased reliance on remote work due to the pandemic is that malicious actors get more opportunities to strike. Security perimeters are no longer distinct, and the range of potentially vulnerable enterprise assets is dynamically swelling. As a result, companies big and small are sailing into the perfect storm of cybercrime.

For organizations looking to reassure customers that excellent data governance is one of their guiding principles, and that they’re doing everything in their power to mitigate the risk posed by cybercrime, ISO/IEC27001 certification is one of the best ways to demonstrate that commitment. Nevertheless, it’s a high standard to achieve. According to data supplied by ISO.org, only 28,426 companies worldwide had achieved the certification by 2022.

The cloud has come a long way from Eric Schmidt's "modern" coining of the phrase in 2006. Today, companies and institutions are reliant upon a cloud infrastructure to run their day-to-day operations. This reliance and growth have also transformed the threat landscape and your cybersecurity requirements along with it. Though cloud service providers are working ceaselessly to shore up vulnerabilities and bolster defenses, the responsibility for your cloud assets does not solely lie with them. Estimates predict that by 2025, 99% of cloud failures will be caused by the customer.

For developers, secret and credential leakage is a problem as old as public-facing repositories. Unfortunately, in 2021 it is officially a significant risk. One that is easy to ignore until it is too late. In a rush to deliver, developers will often hard-code credentials in code or neglect to review code for exposed secrets. The results can be embarrassing, at best - but devastatingly costly in other cases.

Imagine you are in charge of maintaining data for some of the most secretive government offices and powerful business entities globally. You have a significant investment in your security apparatuses protecting that knowledge. For years you haven't had a single blip or incident to cause any suspicion. Then the unthinkable happens, and from a single weak point, your entire network is compromised by malicious code hidden in an innocuous update.

Consuming secrets is a cornerstone for connectivity between applications and infrastructure. Whether it be cloud identity-based secrets such as IAM role keys from AWS, or FTP accessibility credentials - secrets such as these are often discovered by malicious users. The common culprit is usually in a public space such as public repositories on GitHub. While it's easy to think "that will never happen to us", it only takes one misplaced key pushed to the wrong repository for your entire infrastructure, application, and databases to be compromised and exposed.

Monitor, classify, and protect your code, assets, and infrastructure for exposed API keys, tokens, credentials, and high-risk security misconfigurations in a simple way, without noise.

Leverage SpectralOps’ advanced AI backed technology with over 2000 detectors to discover and classify your data silos and uncover data breaches before they happen. Get real-time slack alerts, workflow with JIRA tickets or your choice of notification on data breaches in real time and empower your teams to take immediate action.

Security for all stacks and assets:

  • Supercharge your CI/CD: Automate the processes of secret protection at build time. Monitor and detect API keys, tokens, credentials, security misconfiguration and other threats in real time.
  • Eliminate public blindspots: Continuously uncover and monitor public blindspots, supply chain gaps, and proprietary code assets across multiple data sources in a single dev-friendly platform.
  • Apply & enforce your policies: Seamlessly integrate your own playbooks, build your own detectors, and implement mitigation policies throughout your software development lifecycle.

Achieve data loss prevention in real time.
