- Cost reduction is achieved by detecting and fixing security issues during the development phases which also increases the speed of delivery.
Threat hunting can avoid bad publicity, and
therefore can potentially
increase sales. It is obviously easier to sell a secure product.
Immutable infrastructure allows companies to tear
down infrastructure while managing an attack
vector identified by scanning.
If a node is compromised,
it won’t remain compromised for long, as it will be torn down and rebuilt
with new credentials. Zero defects in the code is the ideal to aim for,
although zero variations are the minimum requirement.
- Speed of recovery is enhanced in the case of a security incident by utilising templates and pet/cattle methodology.
- Immutable infrastructure improves overall security by reducing vulnerabilities, reduces insecure defaults, and increasing code coverage and automation. It also encourages companies to move to the cloud instead of using depreciating and increasingly vulnerable hardware.
