CXO Fireside: “Security Observability – Are you ready for the next Log4J”

Dana Gardner
Director, Product Evangelist
Sanjay Nagaraj
Co-Founder & CTO

read more »

When Log4j emerged, many organizations were caught “flying blind”, hoping that they could protect their applications with their traditional perimeter defense. Modern applications are extremely hard to secure because, in the cloud, the apps are no longer behind a firewall, but rather connected to services potentially everywhere. As a result, security at the gate is simply not enough, now we need visibility of what we have, how it is behaving, and how it is being used or abused. We need visibility with the context of the application in order to protect the business from emerging threats like Log4J and others.

In this session you’ll learn:
-How applications have changed and why we need to rethink application security
-How APIs are the key to security in the future
-How application security requires close collaboration across dev, sec, and ops
