The security services enables enterprises to protect workloads against modern threats.

The use of containers by application development teams continues to increase because of their flexibility and reduced infrastructure costs. However, smart container security remains to be a prime concern. Securing containers is a lot like securing any running process. One needs to secure the layers of the solution stack before the container is deployed and run. The OS that hosts the container environment is the most important layer of the stack to secure because an attack that compromises the host environment could provide intruders with access to everything else in the stack.

Rising hybrid cloud usage due to increasing microservice and management service data environment

Hybrid cloud is a concept that incorporates the elements of both public and private clouds. In this model, enterprises use both private and public clouds at the same time. For storing data of less significance, enterprises opt for public cloud, but data of significant importance is kept on private cloud. It simultaneously targets the 2 major concerns of scalability and security, which are difficult to attain by using only public or private cloud deployment frameworks. Hybrid cloud is a one-stop solution for enterprises with low-budget constraints and high-security needs.

Adoption of CaaS to result in increased revenue and improved business efficiency

CaaS solutions help banks modernize digital foundations for a competitive edge

The BFSI vertical handles the crucial data of customers, including transaction passwords, account numbers, and card details, which needs to be protected with the utmost importance. Maintaining accessibility and security of customer data is as important as retaining that data over longer periods to meet compliance requirements. With increasing financial industry regulations, traditional enterprises in the BFSI vertical need to evolve with advanced technologies to meet these regulatory needs. Hence, the BFSI vertical is expected to follow high-security standards to maintain critical information and is moving toward the adoption of cloud-based container services at a faster pace.
