How Teams Can Reduce the Visibility Gap – Brendon Macaraeg – ESW #232
Security is a shared responsibility, but teams need to know what’s really going on in production with their web apps and APIs, as it’s happening, in order to achieve the reliable security that companies crave. In this podcast, Brendon Macaraeg will focus on the mission-critical need for real-time visibility. As many teams no longer work in the same room side by side, the role visibility plays today — and will continue to play in the future — can no longer be ignored. And it’s not just a shift toward distributed work that’s creating this increased need for information: while security teams may have more application security tools than ever before, very few of them will actually provide visibility into the important decisions they need to make, like which alerts to triage or which APIs are being targeted. Brendon will discuss why companies need to quickly move past legacy technologies that have limited visibility, to instead more active observability tools that provide real insights to act upon — allowing developers and IT security teams to collaborate in real time.
