More often than not, Engineering teams rely on the use of open-source tools, cloud-based solutions, and public repositories to help them deploy their code quicker and more effectively. Speed is particularly important for those organizations practicing DevOps. Unfortunately security considerations often get overlooked.
Misconfigurations and oversharing are two specific challenges that we hear from organizations. It feels like every week we hear about another database that is discovered
with customer records exposed? And, let’s face it, that is just what gets reported. Every day thousands of organizations’ engineering teams misconfigure their code repositories or databases to expose their contents to the public.
This, understandably, causes a headache for security teams, who are responsible for dealing with the exposure these modern tools and processes lead to. Even those organizations who are moving towards DevSecOps do not have the external visibility to understand their exposure.
