    Introducing Fugue's SaaS Offering: Continuous Cloud Infrastructure Compliance

    Drew Wright

    Enterprises operating at scale on clouds like Amazon Web Services (AWS) need assurance that their cloud infrastructure always adheres to compliance policy and never drifts. But unlike the datacenter, today’s cloud environments are API-driven and highly dynamic. When change is the only constant, enforcing continuous compliance is a major challenge. Failure here can result in costly fines, or worse—a critical data breach.

    Eliminating Cloud Misconfiguration with Baseline Enforcement

    Drew Wright

    As more enterprises adopt the cloud, the issue of cloud security has become a top priority. The cloud is fundamentally different than the datacenter. Just as it requires a shift in how we think about architecture and operations, we need to shift our thinking on cloud security and compliance and bake it into DevOps and CI/CD processes (i.e.,DevSecOps) rather than bolt it on later. Failing to do so puts your organization at serious risk of a critical data breach.

    Cloud Misconfiguration Bedevils Enterprises at an Alarming Rate

    Drew Wright

    Last week, Fugue released its Cloud Infrastructure Misconfiguration Report, which presents the results of our survey of more than 300 IT and security professionals from enterprise-level organizations. What surprised many of us at Fugue the most was the steep cost incurred by enterprises in their attempt to manage cloud misconfiguration, which is still largely a complex, manual process in an otherwise automated world of cloud. You can read more about that in The Cost of Cloud Misconfiguration Whack-a-Mole.

    The Cost of Cloud Misconfiguration Whack-a-Mole

    Drew Wright

    Today, Fugue released its Cloud Infrastructure Misconfiguration Report , which presents the results of our survey of IT and security professionals from more than 300 enterprise organizations. At Fugue we’re out to solve cloud misconfiguration, so we live and breathe this stuff every day. But even we were surprised by the survey’s findings. The risks due to cloud misconfiguration are generally acknowledged. 92 percent of respondents are concerned about these risks, and 82 percent reported security and compliance incidents resulting from them. The problem is so big, Gartner’s Neil MacDonald estimates that, by 2020, 80 percent of cloud breaches will be due to misconfiguration and human error. Yes, cloud misconfiguration risk is real. But what's the cost of managing it? That said, I’d...

    Revisiting Unit Testing and Mocking in Python

    Drew Wright

    My previous blog post, Python Mocking 101: Fake It Before You Make It , discussed the basic mechanics of mocking and unit testing in Python. This post covers some higher-level software engineering principles demonstrated in my experience with Python testing over the past year and half. In particular, I want to revisit the idea of patching mock objects in unit tests. Patching External Clients Clients in this post refer to any objects that create side effects, such as disk or network I/O. Consider a class, CloudCreator, that receives messages over HTTP, generates some side effects by creating cloud infrastructure, and sends messages over HTTP in response: import http_client class CloudCreator : def __init__(self) : self.network_client =...
