ARM is increasing its footprint in the Cloud Native space and Edge computing. Companies are able to run high density, work intensive workloads on a single instance of AWS Graviton 2 at about 30% cost, making it efficient and cost-effective. Edge is already an ARM playground. With Apple’s M1 chip, there is now renewed interest in where we are heading with ARM and that, in turn, creates new discussions around security of these ARM-based environments. Aqua Security recently announced the industry’s first container runtime security solution for ARM 64-bit environments. To talk about the rise of ARM architecture in the Cloud Native and Edge space and what security challenges it creates, we invited Rani Osnat, VP Strategy of Aqua Security, to our show. He shared some great insights into the topic and also how Aqua Security is offering solutions for the cloud native workloads running on ARM architecture.
