In the cloud companies are transitioning to the use of microservices at a rapid pace. While this model decreases time to market, it also increases supply chain security risk and lowers visibility. According to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, 92% of companies surveyed are using containers in their production environments. It seems that when it comes to transitioning part of your cloud ecosystem, resistance is futile.

Your containers are likely hosting applications that deliver content to customers. Meaning that your container runtime is exposed to the internet. As modern runtime environments are complex, they present multiple attack vectors. Even the best security is not a guarantee against an attack 'making comprehensive and active runtime protection all the more essential.

Intezer's Ell Marquez and SANS Institute's Jake Williams will explain how increased visibility into each deck (containers) environment (code) 'can help you act quickly to prevent your environment from being assimilated by attackers.
