While most organizations today are using cloud-native apps, Kubernetes and microservices, they struggle to secure and connect the complex environments resulting from them, a Volterra survey reveals.
Securing cloud-native apps
Respondents indicated that cloud-native apps and Kubernetes deployments are particularly difficult to secure and connect because of the growing number of APIs and microservices they incorporate, which make them more distributed and harder to protect.
“Cloud-native is no longer just a bold new idea for most organizations, it’s a reality.
