Implementing Cloud Native Security: Shift-Left to Increase Effectiveness

Dec 11, 2020

Cloud security methods like "shift-left security" and "DevSecOps" refer to new strategies and paradigms that help organizations keep workloads secure in the age of cloud-based, scale-out, constantly-changing applications and infrastructure.

Many in IT, security, and development probably understand what these concepts mean at a high level. Implementing them in a practical sense, however, may be harder. Not only do they require organization-wide buy-in, but they must be efficiently integrated into workflows and toolsets that are already in place.

This guide is designed to address that challenge by exploring what modern, shift-left security entails, including:
• Defining cloud security frameworks and explaining their importance.
• Exploring practical strategies for putting those security philosophies into practice.
• Offering guidance specific to common IT architectural strategies in use today.
