    Prisma, from Palo Alto Networks, sponsored this podcast, following its Cloud Native Security Live, 2020 Virtual Summit held Feb. 11, 2020.

    Agile development teams may able to meet software release and update cadences at faster and faster rates — but ultimately, their deployments are only as good as the underlying code. Applications that lack robustness or have vulnerabilities that are discovered until only after its too late can defeat the whole purpose of Agile DevOps. The hard truth is that policies and practices must involve testing and monitoring from the outset of code development while extending throughout the entire CI/CD lifecycle.

    The main theme of this edition of The New Stack Makers podcast recorded live at Palo Alto Networks’ studio in Santa Clara, CA, is how to protect software throughout the entire supply chain. The guests were:

    Dr. Chenxi Wang, a managing general partner for Rain Capital, a keynote speaker and a “Forbes” contributor.
    Rochelle Mattern, a Google Cloud customer engineer at Google.
    Gareth Rushgrove, a director of product management at Snyk

    What Time Series Data Means for You

    What Time Series Data Means for You

    Time series data management continues to underpin huge swaths of application deployments today across on premises, and increasingly, cloud native environments. Whether it’s video streaming, real-time financial security data management, energy utility management or any application that requires time stamps for often very complex datasets at massive scales, time series data will play an integral role. Today’s time series data platforms can typically be used for data analysis and forecasting by processing millions of data points per second.

    Pricing has also become affordable for a growing number of enterprises seeking high-powered data analysis as a way to distinguish themselves from the competition. These organizations also do not necessarily have the financial backing that the world’s largest financial institutions or Fortune 100 companies have at their disposal.

    In this The New Stack Makers podcast, Chris Churilo, responsible for technical product marketing at InfluxData, offer some background and perspective on why organizations increasingly rely on time series databases to “make products or services better.” Churilo also discussed why organizations are shifting their databases and management to cloud environments and why InfluxData recently extended to its InfluxDB Cloud 2.0 serverless time-series Platform as a Service (PaaS) to include Google Cloud Platform (GCP) as well as Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud environments.

    “Time series data is useful for monitoring anything that you want to make improvements on,” Churilo said. “So, of course, your cloud infrastructure is one thing that you definitely want to always be monitoring to make sure that you can provide the best service, especially if you have applications sitting on top of it that are customer-facing or even internally-facing — no one can tolerate having a slow application.”

    Why Security Is Really Different in Today’s Cloud Native World

    Why Security Is Really Different in Today’s Cloud Native World

    Prisma, from Palo Alto Networks, sponsored this podcast, following its Cloud Native Security Live, 2020 Virtual Summit held Feb. 11, 2020: http://bit.ly/39OjW11

    The traditional role of the IT security professionals in the past largely involved drafting and implementing policies and best practices, as well as managing security-vulnerability detection and remediation. Interaction with developers was usually relegated to the post-deployment stages of software development.

    But in this new age of DevOps, security practices have evolved, especially for cloud native security. Many of the differences can be attributed to how software development underpins DevOps processes. Consequently, security team members have become more development-focused and should play a role throughout the entire production pipeline (think of it as part of a shift to the left in CI/CD).

    In this edition of The New Stack Makers podcast recorded live at Palo Alto Networks’ studio in Santa Clara, CA, how security practices have evolved and changed are discussed. The guests were:

    Ben Bernstein, senior vice president of product and engineering at Palo Alto Networks.
    Matt Chiodi, chief security officer of Public Cloud at Palo Alto Networks.
    Xiaobo Long, senior vice president of cloud security at Citibank.

    In many ways, the evolution of the role of the security professional for cloud native environments is part of the change. In that respect, security, as well as DevOps, is about culture, and thus, people.

    “The DevOps movement enabled not just a digital transformation on the business side,” but digital transformation also “transformed the processes and the things that people do to deploy software and to build software. New programming languages that were previously dictated by the company are now available to everyone,” Bernstein said. “So, it’s all about the people and giving them the ability to choose the best tools for themselves and security has traditionally not been that way. And what you can see is that for us as a security company, it’s very important to empower the people to not only make the right security decision but also give them a set of a wide range of capabilities to pick and choose what they think is most important.”

    "Mary Thengvall - The Value of Developer Relations"

    "Mary Thengvall - The Value of Developer Relations"

    No matter what you call this role — developer community manager, developer evangelist, developer advocate, developer relations, or, cheekily, developer avocado — it's got two things in common. It's one of the most expensive, travel-heavy roles in a tech org and it's one of the hardest to measure. That combination means metrics often make or break your job.

    But first, what is this role? Good question to which there are many, many answers. In this episode of The New Stack Makers, Camunda's Director of Developer Relations Mary Thengvall talked about her definition. And she should know, she wrote the book on the business case for developer relations.

    To her, the DevRel arena is "anyone who is responsible for enabling developer audiences and making them successful.

    Cloud Native Security as Software Eats the World

    Cloud Native Security as Software Eats the World

    Prisma, by Palo Alto Networks, sponsored this podcast, in advance of its Cloud Native Security Live, 2020 Virtual Summit Feb. 11, 2020.

    For many organizations, becoming a software company hinges on making a successful shift to cloud native platforms. This makes sense as a rapidly growing number of organizations, both in the private and public sectors, can achieve very tangible benefits by making the transition. The ultimate goal is typically being able to vastly improve the digital experience for the end-use customer.

    In this, The New Stack Makers podcast, Morello and Aqsa Taylor, a product manager for Prisma Cloud Compute, discuss what organizations should know about security before making the cloud native native shift. The themes covered include, among other things, what a cloud native security platform should offer and the evolution of security in the cloud native era.”
