PCI and Vulnerability Assessments - What’s Missing?

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Wed, 05/04/2016 - 16:00
PCI and Vulnerability Assessments - What’s Missing?hleclair Wed, 05/04/2016 - 15:00 Resource Type Webinars Resource Content All regulatory requirements (HIPAA, PCI, etc.) include a mandate for assessing vulnerabilities in systems that manage or store sensitive data. Organizations often opt to conduct vulnerability assessments on an annual, quarterly, or even monthly basis. But while vulnerability assessment tools can identify unpatched or misconfigured code bases, these tools overlook a large portion of an organization’s attack surface: known vulnerabilities in applications that are built in-house. These applications will not have public updates, nor will the thousands of open source components they utilize be included in public disclosures. This is concerning because over 6,000 vulnerabilities in open source projects have been reported since 2014. Register for this webinar to discover how to protect yourself.

[session] Understand What’s Happening Inside Your Containers By @JFHuard | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure. For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?

Overcoming Network Limitations: A New Approach By @SDietric | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Java Developer's Journal - 6 hours 26 min ago
More is being required today of network infrastructure than ever before, due in part to the changing latency and bandwidth needs of modern applications. Wide area networks (“WANs”) are feeling the pressure, especially those that use many technologies from different services providers, are geographically diverse and are stretched to the limit by increased video and cloud app usage. In view of these challenges, hybrid WAN architectures with advanced application-level traffic routing are of particular interest. They combine the reliability of private lines for critical business applications with the cost-effectiveness of broadband/Internet connectivity for non-critical traffic.

Continuous Integration | @DevOpsSummit @Datical #ContinuousIntegration

In 2006, Martin Fowler posted his now famous essay on Continuous Integration. Looking back, what seemed revolutionary, radical or just plain crazy is now common, pedestrian and "just what you do." I love it. Back then, building and releasing software was a real pain. Integration was something you did at the end, after code complete, and we didn't know how long it would take. Some people may recall how we, as an industry, spent a massive amount of time integrating code from one team with another, or even just between developers that sat next to each other. The arguments against it at the time seemed valid and impactful. Now they seem weak and silly. Fowler proposed Continuous Integration, an idea that was simple, elegant and had far-reaching repercussions. By producing constant, automated, self-testing builds in development, a huge amount of resource overhead typically incurred down the line was eliminated.
