Does the following sound familiar? You need to adopt a DevOps model leveraging microservices as you develop cloud-native applications.

The new norm is continuous improvement/continuous delivery (CI/CD): faster release cycles, increased automation, efficiently reusing existing code, and getting to market quickly. Yet, in the race to a DevOps model, security is often overlooked or left until the last minute. Ideally, the security teams are integrated into the DevOps flow — DevOps needs to be DevSecOps.

Watch this webinar hosted by Cloudentity and TechVision to learn the following:

  • Macro-trends on how DevSecOps is driving disruption and innovation
  • Needed security infrastructure and processes as well as risks associated with deploying microservices without adequate security baked in from the beginning
  • Real-world examples of your peers implementing a DevSecOps model


SEATTLE, Washington: Cloudentity, a cloud-based security platform named a “Cool Vendor” by Gartner, has launched a self-service security mesh for Identity and API security. This service, targeted at enterprise application developers, is now accessible at https://www.cloudentity.com/

Security Impeding Developer Productivity

In today’s digital world, data is typically the company’s most valuable asset. As a result, it’s more important than ever to secure valuable data when developing new software products. Software security is often rushed by developers and invisible to end-users, yet security is still one of the most important aspects of any development project. A single misstep can lead to a catastrophic data breach exposing millions of users and destroying a respected company’s reputation overnight.

Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) allow developers to open communications between different pieces of software, users, and IoT devices. APIs have enabled many of the most innovative digital experiences in the modern world – without them, most of our current software products would simply not function. However, API security is often overlooked and has enabled bad actors to wreak havoc on communication and productivity tools, breach data centers, and even steal employee or customer information.

Integrating Security, DevOps Into A Single Package

Cloudentity’s Identity Microservices enables developers to rapidly integrate security features into their APIs – from the moment that they begin coding. This avoids the issue of “backloading” security development, and helps ensure a safe, secure API architecture.

“Security should be an enabler, not a roadblock. Cloudentity allows you to include the latest security measures in your DevOps CI/CD flow to deliver a safe customer experience,” says Nathanael Coffing, CEO of Cloudentity. “Developers can do what they do best… build killer apps with integrated API level security.”

Cloudentity DevOps security tools have been used in multiple industries, and customers have estimated that they will be able to save up to 20% of the overall cost of project development – while speeding time to market by upwards toward 35%.
