Containers
"Nearly all (94%) say containerization has a negative impact on security."

I'm curious to what extent this is inherent to containerization and to what extent it's a more a matter of complexity and lack of diligence.

Of course, if it's the latter, that in and of itself suggests an inherent security risk to containerization.

In any case, unikernels have long been noted in some circles as having a distinct security advantage to containers.

Re: Containers
Most likely the latter. Rapidly jumping into the cloud is a poor choice for most organizations and the ones that forced containerization of apps will find that they were ill-equipped to do so on such a large scale.

Re: Containers
Indeed. The tech specifics may be different, but things haven't changed much over the decades. Enterprise technologies get hyped, ill-informed execs make hasty purchasing and implementation decisions, and then fundamentals at the orchestration layer suffer.

And do not forget the additional layer of complexity that American management believes that ALL IT issues can be managed from the Tech Empire of the World - Bangalore - and cheaper-faster-better too.

Re: Containers
Interestingly, the trend to digital transformation may help to reverse the offshoring trend because nowadays network proximity is a major factor.

But then, even if that's so, expect it to re-reverse as more service-provider and content-delivery network gateways proliferate globally.

Container Security
There is no reason why containers should be unsecure if implemented properly. Security has to be put in place before it comes to the container, nothing different than how you would secure a virtual machine.

I would agree with that. There has to be proper mechanism in place for bot security and stability point of view.

I would agree with this too. I would think it is because of the pressure in the market, everybody uses containers, let us use it too mentality. However I see benefits of containers for certain environment.

Yes, I know a few friends who are working there. I see your point tough.

The Promise and Reality of Cloud Security
Cloud security has been part of the cybersecurity conversation for years but has been on the sidelines for most enterprises. The shift to remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic and digital transformation projects have moved cloud infrastructure front-and-center as enterprises address the associated security risks. This report - a compilation of cutting-edge Black Hat research, in-depth Omdia analysis, and comprehensive Dark Reading reporting - explores how cloud security is rapidly evolving.
