ShiftLeft released a new version of NextGen Static Analysis (NG SAST), including new workflows, purpose-built for developers that significantly improve security, while enhancing productivity.
Enterprise usage of multi-cloud, open source technologies such as Kubernetes, and Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud-native services has grown significantly year-over-year, according to a new report by Sumo Logic, The Continuous Intelligence Report: The State of Modern Applications and DevSecOps in the Cloud.
The report also provides a summary of three major trends shaping digital business today: the rise of modern applications, the rapid adoption of DevSecOps collaboration and processes, and the emergence of the Intelligence Economy from the tsunami of data from digital operating models. Because of this shift, digital businesses now have a real-time accountability to understand what is happening in their business the moment it happens, but the velocity, veracity and variety of their data growth from the complexity of their cloud and microservices architectures makes it easy to fall behind. The result is an intelligence gap, which impedes the real-time decision-making required for on-demand, customer experiences. The industry is recognizing that continuous intelligence as a strategy and capability is the best way to close this gap.
Key findings from this year's report include:
Multi-cloud is growing faster than any other modern infrastructure category
Enterprise adoption and deployments of multi-cloud grew 50% year-over-year.
Kubernetes is highly prevalent in multi-cloud environments
As customers adopt multi-cloud, Kubernetes adoption significantly rises. Enterprises are betting on Kubernetes to drive their multi-cloud strategies.
■ 20% of customers in AWS-only environment use Kubernetes
■ 23% of customers on AWS and Azure use Kubernetes
■ 59% of customers on AWS and GCP use Kubernetes
■ More than 80% of customers on all three clouds use Kubernetes
Open source has disrupted the modern application stack
■ 4 of the 6 tiers that make up the modern application stack have been disrupted by open source
■ Open source solutions for containers, orchestration, infrastructure and application services are leading this transformation
Enterprises only use 15 out of 150+ available AWS cloud-native services
Adoption of individual IaaS services suggest enterprises are trying to avoid vendor lock-in.
■ Basic compute, storage, database and network services services make up top 10 adopted services in AWS
■ The top AWS cloud-native services used: EC2, RDS, IAM, STS,CloudFormation
Serverless adoption has reached a tipping point
Serverless architectures continue to grow at a rapid pace as a cost-effective option to speed cloud and DevOps deployment automation.
■ AWS Lambda adoption grew to 36% in 2019, up 12% from 2017
■ 1 in 3 enterprises are using serverless in production
■ AWS Lambda is also being used in several non-production use cases and has become one of the top 10 AWS services by adoption.
Significant adoption of next-gen and cloud-hosted security technologies continues
Double-digit adoption growth of AWS-native security services and threat intelligence services show security continues to be a top concern for enterprises.
■ Almost 1 in 2 enterprises use some form of cloud-native or commercial threat intelligence service
■ Enterprises also adopting third-party cloud security offerings
Report Methodology: The data in this report analyzes the technology adoption from more than 100,000 users who run massive mission-critical modern applications on cloud platforms like AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform, as well as hybrid cloud infrastructures.
