Om Moolchandani, CEO of Accurics, asserts that security should not be an afterthought, especially in a cloud-native environment. “The biggest reason is the fact that the cost of remediation is extremely high and retrofitting it is exceedingly difficult,” he says. The cloud-native world is all about immutability, agility, speed and scale. The apps deployed on cloud-native architectures are designed to scale. Therefore, security has to be baked into it in order for security to match the scalability and speed that is needed.
In this mini virtual event during KubeCon, we sat down with Om Moolchandani to talk about how different security in the cloud native space is and how companies like Accurics are helping users secure their workloads.
Accurics enables cyber resilience through self-healing as organizations embrace cloud native infrastructure. The Accurics platform self-heals infrastructure by codifying security throughout the development lifecycle. It programmatically detects and resolves risks across Infrastructure as Code before infrastructure is provisioned, and maintains the secure posture in runtime by programmatically mitigating risks from changes.
