About this Episode

One of the most touted virtues of cloud-native application deployment is that it aims to free the software developer from having to worry about the state of their infrastructure. Cloud-native security is a service provided on behalf of the maintainer of the cloud-native development space who, in more and more enterprises, is someone in development. So how can cloud-native architectures be easier to use while also placing more responsibility on developers for delivering secure applications?

The New Stack correspondent Scott Fulton and Twistlock CTO John Morello discuss why cloud-native is the future of application development and what makes it inherently more secure.

“One of the characteristics of containers is that they’re very predictable, or they should be,” Morello said. “This allows you to do security in a more predictable, automated way.”
