Leveraging CI / CD pipelines, enterprises want to be able to automate in a hybrid world, with some on-premise and public cloud automation.
Both enterprise and Department of Defense tech teams are facing a huge challenge as more and more IT infrastructure is moved to the cloud and made fully automated. The days of manual deployments of infrastructure are ending fast, and IT teams need automation tools to move to the modernization of IT becoming code including infrastructure and security.
The key is to have the flexibility to have developers be able to wear the DevOps engineer hat with a platform they can use to create CI / CD pipelines that easily use DevOps tools to create integrations into ticketing systems, run security remediation playbooks, deploy Kubernetes with a security benchmark, and even harden on-premise sensors.
