With the increased complexity of cloud workloads, security configuration and tests must shift left, or move into previous steps in the development pipeline. This means that developers are now also responsible for delivering a secure code. With Alcide embedded policies, developers can bake-in security policies into their microservices at design time, and enforce it automatically at runtime.
Alcide embedded policy allows deploying security policy configuration into the CI/CD pipeline and enforces security policy for the newly created workload (container, pod or VM) automatically. This ensures that the new entity is immediately granted with the access it requires for normal functioning.
The result: Security teams are more confident with the code they deploy as the developer’s application know-how is already embedded as whitelist into workloads.
