According to a Forrester report in which our guest speakerDevin Dickersoncontributed, "The serverless architecture market was valued at$7.29 billionin 2020 and is projected to reach$36.84 billionby 2028. The biggest challenge facing organizations transitioning to serverless compute are the beliefs that security is the responsibility of the cloud provider and that the surface of the threat landscape is smaller."1

"Organizations are readily adopting serverless technologies due to their inherited benefits, such as cost-savings and the ability to scale. However, security teams must manage age-old common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs) and risks associated with open source libraries on top of new threats introduced in serverless environments and lack of visibility and context," said Connell. "This webinar will break down the common misconceptions of moving to a cloud-native environment as well as how digital businesses can deliver customer value quickly while ensuring their code is securely protected."
