To help wrangle it, security professionals have struggled for years to use tools such as network mapper (nmap) or vulnerability scanners to discover and test the security of internet-exposed assets; these typically present a path of least […]
The introduction of containers and micro-service architectures have changed the way we develop, deploy, and run our applications.
