Without Observability, Security Is Blind: Oxeye CEO, Dean Agron


Summary: Security has become the top priority for users as Cloud Native Computing is moving into production. Cloud security has become a busy place with both traditional and cloud-native vendors offering solutions to users, Oxeye is a new player in the space, which is still in stealth mode, offering a cloud-native application security testing platform. In this interview for KubeCon 2021 (NA), Dean Agron, CEO & Co-Founder of Oxeye joined me to talk about why he created the company. “ The main driver that moved us to open Oxeye was the shift in the application technology landscape towards cloud-native approach, and that’s combined with the shift-left movement in the cybersecurity landscape, handing over the responsibility and ownership of a security to developers,” said Agron.

Here is a summary of the topics we covered in this show:

  • Introduction to the company, why it was created.
  • Difference between traditional IT security vs Cloud Native Computing security and what unique challenges does it pose?
  • We hear a lot about shift left and DevSecOps, SRE movement, but how much of it is actually being practiced vs preached?
  • Is Oxeye a security vendor or an observability vendor?
  • What kind of solutions does Oxeye have?
  • Presence at KubeCon and plans for coming out of stealth?
