Tigera’s New Report Finds Challenges That Come With Cloud-Native Applications


Tigera’s first State of Cloud-Native Security Report states the adoption of cloud-native applications is growing, thus creating new challenges regarding security, compliance, and observability.  Moreover, 97% of companies stated that observability remains one of the biggest challenges for them. “The surprise was not the challenge itself; it was the scale of the challenge,” says Utpal Bhatt, CMO of Tigera, on this episode of TFiR Insights. “The fact that they’re not even able to see how these components are interacting, was the biggest surprise.”

Key highlights from this video interview are:

  • Adopting a security cloud-native application architecture presents a lot of new challenges, some of which do not apply to traditional, monolithic architectures. Bhatt explains some of the challenges companies are facing and what proportion of the participants are experiencing these challenges.
  • Although cloud adoption is growing, there is a need to redesign and leverage cloud-native architectures to take advantage of the scale and elasticity cloud offers. Bhatt discusses why some companies who adopt cloud-native applications are yet to reap the benefits of them.
  • Although there is a lot of awareness on the types of security controls we need to establish and at which stages, there are some gray areas. Bhatt explains that companies are still experiencing difficulties and are more vulnerable. Bhatt discusses how they can solve these problems.
  • Bhatt explains the misconception that companies can rely on cloud platform vendors to secure their workloads and give them the level of observability they need to ensure they are not exposed. He explains why this is not the case.
  • Bhatt discusses some of the security risks with cloud-native architectures and how Tigera is helping solve these risks.
