Cloud-native architectures break traditional approaches to application security

Software intelligence company Dynatrace announced the findings of an independent global survey of 700 CISOs, which reveals the rising adoption of cloud-native architectures, DevOps, and agile methodologies has broken traditional approaches to application security.

As organizations shift more responsibility ‘left’ to developers to accelerate innovation, increasingly complex IT ecosystems and outdated security tooling can slow releases by leaving blind spots and forcing teams to manually triage countless alerts, many of which are false positives reflecting vulnerabilities in libraries that are not used in production.

Organizations are calling for a new approach that is optimized for multi-cloud environments, Kubernetes and DevSecOps.

Bernd Greifeneder, Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Dynatrace, said: “The increased use of cloud-native architectures has fundamentally broken traditional approaches to application security.

“This research confirms what we’ve long anticipated: manual vulnerability scans and impact assessments are no longer able to keep up with the pace of change in today’s dynamic cloud environments and rapid innovation cycles.”

The report is based on a global survey of 700 CISOs in large enterprises with over 1,000 employees, conducted by Coleman Parkes and commissioned by Dynatrace in 2021. The sample included 200 respondents in the US, 100 in the UK, France, Germany and Spain and 50 in Brazil and Mexico, respectively.
