3 observability best practices for improved security in cloud-native applications

Observability, especially in the context of cloud-native applications, is important for several reasons. First and foremost is security. By design, cloud-native applications rely on multiple, dynamic, distributed, and highly ephemeral components or microservices, with each microservice operating and scaling independently to deliver the application functionality.

Redact sensitive data from your logs on-prem by using Observability Pipelines

As your business evolves to serve more users, your applications and infrastructure will generate an increasing volume of logs, which may contain sensitive data such as credit card numbers, IP addresses, and tokens. When you collect sensitive data, you may be subject to laws such as GDPR—which restricts the transfer of personal data across borders, and you may face legal consequences if this data is exposed outside your infrastructure.

5 reasons why observability and security work well together

Site reliability engineers (SREs) and security analysts — despite having very different roles — share a lot of the same goals. They both employ proactive monitoring and incident response strategies to identify and address potential issues before they become service impacting. They also both prioritize organizational stability and resilience, aiming to minimize downtime and disruptions.

Securing the Modern Enterprise: Unified Microsegmentation and Observability with Calico

In the ever-evolving landscape of enterprise networks, the traditional approach of relying on a fortified perimeter to secure internal assets faces significant challenges. The dichotomy of a trusted internal network and an untrusted external environment, enforced by perimeter defenses, has been a longstanding strategy.

Modernizing financial services: A deep dive into Elastic Cloud on AWS for Observability, Security, and more

In the dynamic landscape of financial services, data is not just currency; it's the key to innovation and operational excellence. Data is constantly streamlining from devices, logins, transfers, transactions, and much more, and it’s bound to increase with an ongoing reliance on digital channels. This creates a massive opportunity and responsibility for financial institutions, as their customers (and regulators) demand more from banking providers.

What is the Benefit of Including Security with Your Observability Strategy?

Observability strategies are needed to ensure stable and performant applications, especially when complex distributed environments back them. Large volumes of observability data are collected to support automatic insights into these areas of applications. Logs, metrics, and traces are the three pillars of observability that feed these insights. Security data is often isolated instead of combined with data collected by existing observability tools.

Unifying Security and Observability to Strengthen Digital Resilience

In today's always-on, ever-connected world, keeping digital systems secure and reliable is not just a goal, but a business imperative — it is now a boardroom-level conversation. With the increasing complexity of digital systems and ever-growing event volume, organizations face a constant battle to protect their systems, data, and reputation from a myriad of threats. Simultaneously, they need to optimize system performance, identify bottlenecks, and enhance the overall user experience.

10 Out Of 10 SecOps Pros Agree: You Can't Secure What You Can't See

Network complexity is at an all-time high. Between legacy technology, hybrid-multi-cloud environments, and networks cobbled together by mergers and acquisitions, it’s impossible for people to keep track of the network, its topology, and behavior. The idea of trying to trace a path through a multi-cloud network seems akin to being asked to pull a rabbit out of your hat.
