SO WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL WITH CONTAINERS?
Containers aren’t a fad. In fact, 56% of respondents to the 2019 State of Application Services Report are currently employing containers1. But it’s important to keep in mind that with the myriad of benefits containers bring—portability, scalability, increased deployment efficiency—comes the potential for security risks and even deployment inefficiency. This often stems from trying to fit your static, legacy application services with your modern, digital transformation-driven containerized apps.
Instead of attempting to retrofit security and performance app services to suit a new set of needs, parameters, and standards, you need a solution that’s just as dynamic as your containerized applications.
