Developing applications with microservices and containers may be a modern approach to software design, but traditional software flaws still remain a problem when addressing cloud-native security.
When you think about microservices-architected, there’s a wide range of, I guess you could say opinions, about what that means.
In this age of DevOps and cloud-native development, the software stack is more complex than ever, and when code is distrusted across a multitude of microservices and layered upon multiple virtual machines (VMs) and Docker containers, security holes can be difficult to identify. “The complexity of the application is a major challenge to any development staff,”
Minimally built container can be far more secure than a full-blown VM. Container orchestration tools are making it easier than ever to enforce cloud-native security by rolling out updates to each Docker instance.
