Three-pronged Approach to Securing Containers

With more enterprises looking to make the switch from experimenting with containers to deploying them in production, container security looks set to become the next big talking point in the container landscape over the next few years.

2017 Cloud Foundry survey revealed that 25 percent of enterprises currently use containers in production, but as enterprises become more familiar with the technology, this figure will almost certainly rise over the coming months and years.

The appeal of containers is how they provide a way to quickly package applications with everything they need to run, providing consistency between development, testing, and production. Containers reduce conflict between developers, testers, and sysadmins, leading to agile software development.

Introducing OpsGenie’s Incident Command Center!

Jan 15, 2018 by Emel Dogrusoz
Why need an Incident Command System?

In 1970, a series of devastating wildfires swept across California, destroying more than 700 homes over 775 square miles in 13 days with 13 fatalities, and resulting in more than $233 million in losses (over $1 billion in today’s dollars, adjusted for inflation). Thousands of firefighters from around the state and beyond responded, but found it very difficult to work together. They certainly knew how to fight fires, but lacked a common management framework that could scale up and down with the incident. They also lacked a standardized approach for incident leadership. Shortly thereafter, several fire service leaders created a revolutionary system for managing emergencies that range from the everyday fire and medical emergency to large-scale emergency events that make the national news. The Incident Command System (ICS) was born, which has since evolved into the Incident Management System (IMS).
