Top Vulnerability Management Strategies for Cloud Native Security 

Applications deployed in Cloud Native are still applications and need risk and vulnerability management. However, patching in place, which is the remediation strategy for traditional environments, is not an option. Cloud Native workloads are immutable, they come from templates or images, and can re-instantiate automatically.

So what is the best way to do vulnerability management in these environments? 

We review:

  • How vulnerability management is affected by moving to Cloud Native deployments
  • How to take advantage of their unique properties to develop a more efficient strategy to reduce risk in both the applications and the deployment environment.
  • Gaining visibility into what was a vulnerability in base images vs. production images
