Data Theorem, Inc., a leading provider of modern
application security, today announced it has been selected to
present on protecting data in real-world microservices at the 23rd
International Cloud Expo next week.
Alban Diquet, Data Theorem’s head of engineering, will present
“Serverless vs Containers: A Case Study of Building and Securing
Real-World Microservices” on June 26 at 3:40 pm PDT at the Santa Clara
Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif. For more information, see https://cloudexpo2019.sched.com/event/KvtE.
Amazon, Google, and Microsoft are pushing serverless with claims it is
easier and cheaper for customers. At the same time, there has been a
rapid adoption of container technologies and orchestrators (such as
Kubernetes), with similar promises of faster, cheaper deployments at
unprecedented scale. As the size and cost of Data Theorem’s cloud
infrastructure increased, it implemented a backend component powering
one of its biggest products using both serverless and containers. The
goal was to compare these technologies in terms of security,
scalability, time-to-market, ease-of-use, and overall cost. Attendees of
this session will discover this project’s findings in terms of benefits
and downsides of each technology, and how to deploy, use, and secure
them in the context of a real-world application.
Data Theorem’s API Discover and API Inspect together address security
concerns such as Shadow APIs, Serverless Applications, and API Gateway
cross-check validation by conducting continuous security assessments on
API authentication, authorization, encryption, availability, cloud
storage, databases, serverless functions, and policy compliance. The API
security solutions support Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, and
Microsoft Azure to discover modern APIs and to enumerate the
specification using standards such as Swagger and Open API 3.0.
