How Jenkins X updates this CI/CD tool for the cloud, Kubernetes

Source- searchmicroservices.techtarget.com Jenkins was one of the first essential technologies of the DevOps revolution. As such, development and operations teams around the world constructed expansions, build packs and plugins for this CI/CD tool. Unfortunately, Jenkins wasn’t built for the cloud or designed for containers. In fact, most Jenkins environments differ substantially from a Docker or Kubernetes ecosystem. This left many developers struggling to figure out how they could continue to use this tried-and-true open source automation server. This is the problem that Jenkins X was designed to

Survey: Container security is a growing concern for IT professionals

Source- fiercetelecom.com It’s not surprising that 60% of the IT security professionals in a recent survey have experienced security incidents with their container usage over the past year. But it is somewhat surprising 47% of those security professionals who manage environments with containers responded that they did deploy containers with known vulnerabilities. Maybe the promise of containers is too tempting for some IT professionals to resist. And a majority of them don’t have the same IT resources as a large telco.

PCI Council Releases New Software Framework for DevOps Era

Source- darkreading.com This week the PCI Security Standards Council released a new software security standard that is designed to help it validate the security of payment ecosystems in the face of newer software architectures and modern development methods like DevOps and continuous delivery. The new standard would ultimately replace the PCI Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS). “Software development practices have evolved over time, and the new standards address these changes with an alternative approach for assessing software security,” explains Troy

Survey Indicates Container Security Concerns Limit Adoption

Source- datacenterknowledge.com A decade ago when a cloud was the latest disruptive technology, IT departments found they needed to rewrite the book on security. The old way of doing things — protecting the perimeter of the local network or data center with firewalls and other security precautions — wasn’t enough anymore. The data center and the LAN had expanded to include VMs, applications, and data sitting outside the firewall, on cloud servers owned and operated by the likes of Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, or

DevOps: Underestimated Security Risks

Source- e3zine.com Digital transformation needs high agility and increasingly promotes the use of DevOps environments. That’s because DevOps offers accelerated innovation, higher flexibility and reduced complexity in application development and deployment. With the implementation of DevOps, companies, therefore, want to primarily benefit their businesses. More often than not, however, they neglect security. A severe mistake, because DevOps significantly widens the attack surface for cybercriminals. If companies use DevOps models, they also have to create more privileged accounts and login details and

What is software application enhancement?

Source- techhq.com Software application developers and programmers work hard to build the apps we use every day. Developers also spend a lot of time focused on engineering, integrating and deploying that software alongside their operations ‘Ops’ counterparts– often in newly-established DevOps teams designed to combine the working goals of both parties. But not all apps just get built and then retired or killed off. Lifecycle management Many applications (and wider database analytics systems) will go through what the industry likes to
