As more organizations accelerate adoption of cloud infrastructure for increased efficiencies and scalability, they are faced with the challenge of identifying and correcting misconfiguration. Cloud infrastructure misconfiguration can occur anywhere in your infrastructure. If not corrected immediately after discovery, it can expose organizations.
In last week’s blog post , we discussed the seriousness of cloud misconfigurations and the impact they can have on organizations as they move to the cloud. The fallout from cloud misconfigurations can be severe: steep regulatory fines, loss of customer data, damage to your reputation, or loss of customer trust.
In this post, we address some of.
I’ve now been in the role of CEO here at Fugue for a number of weeks, and thought it might be worthwhile to lay out my reasons for joining this fantastic company. First off, I’d like to say a big “thank you” to the wonderful staff and customers of Fugue who have given me a very warm and enthusiastic welcome. Not only that, they have graciously.
Cloud infrastructure misconfiguration is preventable, yet remains one of the most common security concerns for organizations moving to the cloud. A recent report from IBM X-Force revealed that there was a 424% increase in data breaches due to cloud misconfigurations that were caused by human error. Configuration drift that leads to.
DevOps provides IT enterprises with the ability to rapidly iterate on smart, fast software deployments. Relying on powerful version control and build tools like Github and Jenkins enables DevOps teams to save time and money by including development and operations in a single automated pipeline.
However, in some DevOps environments, security is.
Two years ago, I wrote a blog post that got some notice, which surprised me. It was a piece about going back to Emacs as my primary content creation tool, first as a CEO, and now as a CTO. A brief recap is that I spent most of my career as a programmer and a software architect, and preferred Emacs as my code editor for much of that time..
It has never been faster or easier to get something deployed in the cloud. Every day, it seems that cloud service providers like AWS and Azure are delivering a slew of new services that make it easier for enterprises to move their workloads to the cloud. Unfortunately, security and compliance may be left behind. The cloud offers increased.
In late November of 2017, I informed Fugue's Board that I intended to lead a search for a new CEO. We had a substantial amount of money on the balance sheet, some really impressive customers, a solid product, and a highly motivated team - many of the things needed to attract a world class CEO. My passion has always been for technology and team.
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.
Launched in 2011, AWS CloudFormation was a game changer because it was one of the first template-based, infrastructure-as-code (IaC) tools that provided the ability to express the full cloud infrastructure stack as configuration files. It wasn’t limited to the OS layer like traditional configuration management tools.
