Once cyber attackers get access to the underlying operating system, either because of privilege escalations or misconfigurations, it is possible to do a lot of damage. Organizations need to ensure that the cloud-native applications are being scanned for vulnerabilities, keeping the latest patches and applying them. Tools like SysDig and Appsmith can be helpful. Gaurav Rishi, Vice President of Products & Cloud Native at Kasten by Veeam, goes on to discuss why policy management is so important both in pre-production and then enforcing the policies on the production side.
