Speed Of Automation Can Leave Security Teams Spinning
In an automated, code-based world, new objects and systems can be created as quickly as a new line of code is entered into the system, according to Scott Whitehouse, CyberArk's vice president of channels and alliances. But the increased speed enabled by automation makes it difficult for security teams to wrap their arms around everything out there, Whitehouse said.
It takes a lot of security technology, knowledge and build processes to capture scaling out as it occurs, Whitehouse said. Otherwise, Whitehouse said it becomes very difficult for security teams to discover everything out there.
As new technologies are deployed and deployed, there must be a security presence on the development side of the operation, which Whitehouse said is too often lacking today. If the infusion of security into the build lifecycle is make easier, Whitehouse said the developers are less likely to rail against what the security experts want them to do.
