Graham Cluley Security News reported this week, SisdigThank you to the amazing team for your support!
The unmanageable number of vulnerabilities in the cloud is your worst kept secret. Sysdig 2023 Cloud-Native Security and Usage report states: 87% of container images have high or critical vulnerabilities. Certainly not everything matters! what is important? And what can you ignore?
There is hope. The answer is “a lot!”
By focusing on in-use risk exposure, or vulnerable packages that are actually in use at runtime, teams focus their efforts on a small fraction of remediable vulnerabilities that actually represent real risk. can do. According to the Sysdig report, 15% of critical, high-level vulnerabilities for which fixes are available are in packages loaded at runtime. That’s a big difference!
Reducing the number of vulnerabilities from 85% to 15% provides a more actionable number for cybersecurity teams. By standardizing your approach to risk exposure in use, you can save time and focus that effort elsewhere, such as creating new applications.
This year, the Sysdig 2023 Cloud-Native Security and Usage report focused on key cloud challenges, including: Software supply chain risk, zero trustand Cost managementAfter analyzing billions of containers, Sysdig hopes to help the industry understand the state of the cloud and the best practices that will help inform your 2023 cybersecurity strategy.
