Cloud computing environments are increasingly defined and controlled by infrastructure-as-code (i.e. Terraform), containers and Kubernetes. With this shift, we are seeing an emerging trend that is familiar to those who have followed DevOps. Increasingly DevOps teams have placed a high priority on identifying and remediating security issues as early as possible in the development cycle. Similarly, cloud teams are pushing to identify potential security problems earlier in the process – as containers and cloud resources are being designed, not after they are deployed. However, one of the major challenges is that most developers are security-aware but are not experts. Therefore, there is an increasing need for developer-friendly approaches that help identify security issues in code (application and cloud configurations).

Techstrong Research conducted several polls among the Techstrong cloud native, security and DevOps communities. The goal of these polls was to understand our members’ evolving priorities around creating secure cloud environments.
