While developers have the power to change the world with each tap of the keyboard, results from SolarWinds Cloud Confessions: The Trouble with Troubleshooting revealed a disconnect between technology pros' skills to innovate and the tasks they must deal with on an everyday basis. Troubleshooting application issues was the No. 1 activity on which tech professionals (including web product managers (WPMs), developers, and DevOps teams) spend their time, which results in less time for product development and innovation ...

Companies are struggling to address the gap that exists between how they're using containers and their level of confidence about security and misconfigurations. The more containers dominate application development, the more imperative it is to integrate container security measures throughout the process, bringing it earlier in the app dev process and integrating it with the orchestration layer. Portability and integration are critical as companies are trying to simultaneously operationalize and secure containers and microservices across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. The lag between container security and container adoption represents significant risks to individual businesses as well as the broader ecosystem. It's time to close this security gap before it widens, and DevOps has a central role to play ...

In a digital survey on integration challenges, the respondents were very forthcoming about the state of their current integration solutions and their roles in driving business outcomes.

Without question, cyberattacks represent a viable threat to a business' bottom line. A new report from Radware shows that security professionals estimate the average cost of a cyberattack in excess of $1.1M. For those organizations that calculate (versus estimate) the cost of an attack, that number increases to $1.67M. The resulting business impacts? Just as alarming ...
