The software service arena today is largely the result of innovation fueling a series of disruptions that have occurred over the last decade. This started with Amazon realizing they had a surplus of resources driven by a team of out of the box thinkers that began selling what today is the juggernaut AWS. The transition into virtualized servers began two decades ago; today’s tech stacks are generations beyond virtualization, an amalgamation of cloudified architectures. Server-side applications are being compartmentalized and segmented into the smallest common form (microservices) that allows for scale, cost control, and agility.
Such technology trends are not just about web services, but have also disrupted the way modern teams communicate, develop and interoperate together. Whether a cohabitated team, a telecommuter, or even global disparate teams made of contractors, the needs for access and data sharing are growing proportionally, at least for now. Unfortunately, as there is often a balance in nature, these wins in engineering and team building are being offset with a nearly equal number of new vectors of exposure. From the perimeter to the critical layers of the OSI model, and the API’s themselves, microservices and containers are still being exploited. Fortunately, there are companies that have identified these weak points and are engineering tactical solutions that bring quality and resolution. A cloud-based architecture, bundled with a cloud-based full-stack security solution, will provide the C-Level peace of mind.
Templarbit is one such company. It focuses on solutions that provide application layer security for modern teams. They do this at the data and application levels by protecting against those attacks on web applications and API’s that can impact uptime and ultimately revenue. Through the use of a centralized policy system to manage content security, their machine learning models, powered by their proprietary algorithms, enable an automated bottoms-up solution without the delay or potential for error from the human layer. Adaptable to the big three public cloud IaaS and/or private infrastructure, their agent based solution supports local or remote hybrid processing, delivering critical AppSec to those customers, partners, and employees that require access -- and ready to deny those that don’t -- all with the same vendor agnostic toolbox.
As CSO managing both security and risk, especially in a SaaS-driven model, there are many reasons to lose sleep, but agonizing over which AppSec solution to deploy should not be one of them. Templarbit is easy to deploy and configure, and already available in major app stores and container repos.
