IT and Security teams lack visibility into containers and have trouble validating them – both before placing them into production, and when running in production. Their peers on the development team are often disinterested in security, and cannot be bothered to provide reports and metrics. This is essentially the same problem we have for application security in general: the people responsible for the code are not incentivized to make security their problem, and the people who need to know what’s going on lack visibility.
This paper covers the drivers for managed security monitoring, the use cases where a service provider can offer the most value, and some guidance on how to actually select a service provider. It’s a comprehensive look at what it takes to select a security monitoring service.
