Ensuring the security of software is a major concern for developers, not just open source but also paid software. Developers need to be following security best practices and focusing on securing the development lifecycle. According to Barak Schoster, Senior Director, Chief Architect at Palo Alto Networks, organizations going through digital transformation, breaking monoliths into microservices, have changed and modernized the cloud infrastructure.
