Prisma Cloud Adds Multi-Cloud Drift Detection to Bridgecrew to Help Organizations Keep Cloud Infrastructure Aligned and Secure

Palo Alto Networks | August 31, 2021

Palo Alto Networks announced that Bridgecrew by Prisma Cloud has added Multi-Cloud Drift Detection to identify and flag discrepancies between how cloud resources were defined in infrastructure as code (IaC) and how they are currently configured in runtime. With misconfigurations a leading cause of cloud breaches, Drift Detection helps improve cloud security posture and enables teams to effectively manage IT infrastructure (GitOps). The initial deployment of Drift Detection supports Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud. According to Gartner, "Through 2025, more than 99% of cloud breaches will have a root cause of preventable misconfigurations or mistakes by end users."1 While DevSecOps helps keep misconfigurations to a minimum by codifying and enforcing security policies, out-of-band changes are inevitable because of maintenance, incident response tasks and ad hoc changes these out-of-band changes are known as drift. Regardless of why drift occurs, being able to detect and address it when it does is crucial to maintaining GitOps practices and mitigating cloud risk. "The most effective way to avoid misconfigurations is by adopting infrastructure as code and making all changes through git and a secure continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline. That way, misconfigurations are identified and fixed in code before they're provisioned," said Idan Tendler, vice president of DevSecOps, Prisma Cloud at Palo Alto Networks. "However, even organizations that follow GitOps best practices have 'break glass' emergencies where operations teams need to make quick changes to cloud resources directly in production that can result in drift. Detecting this drift is one of the keys to maintaining a secure cloud infrastructure." Bridgecrew Drift Detection is powered by the company's latest open source project Yor, which automatically tags IaC templates with attribution and ownership details as well as a unique ID that gets carried across to cloud resources. Drift Detection builds on top of Yor's code-to-cloud tracing abilities by alerting developers when a drift occurs and allowing them to automatically fix it straight from the Bridgecrew platform. Because of the visibility and control that Drift Detection allows, it is an important critical capability for any organization that is shifting security left and embracing DevSecOps. About Bridgecrew Bridgecrew by Prisma Cloud is the developer-first cloud DevSecOps platform that enables teams to automate infrastructure security throughout the development lifecycle. With support for infrastructure as code (IaC) scanning, security-as-code fixes, and native developer tools integrations, Bridgecrew shifts security left and makes it accessible to developers. About Palo Alto Networks Palo Alto Networks, the global cybersecurity leader, is shaping the cloud-centric future with technology that is transforming the way people and organizations operate. Our mission is to be the cybersecurity partner of choice, protecting our digital way of life. We help address the world's greatest security challenges with continuous innovation that seizes the latest breakthroughs in artificial intelligence, analytics, automation, and orchestration. By delivering an integrated platform and empowering a growing ecosystem of partners, we are at the forefront of protecting tens of thousands of organizations across clouds, networks, and mobile devices. Our vision is a world where each day is safer and more secure than the one before.

Pure Storage redefines AI-ready infrastructure with AIRI/S built on NVIDIA DGX systems

Pure Storage | June 09, 2022

Pure Storage, the IT pioneer that provides the world's most sophisticated data storage technology and services, introduced AIRI/S, the next version of its comprehensive AI-ready infrastructure, created by Pure Storage and NVIDIA, at Pure/Accelerate techfest22. AIRI/S is a simple, on-demand platform that helps businesses accelerate AI initiatives at any scale. AI's capacity to drive innovation and gain a competitive edge with key business insights has been acknowledged by businesses across industries. However, the complexity and rigidity of legacy infrastructure technologies – both on-premises and in the cloud – is a hurdle for businesses hoping to realize the promise of AI-based data science. Moreover, the complexities of a "do-it-yourself" approach hinder too many AI ventures, resulting in considerable delays and idle time. Instead, in order to promote faster innovation and gather actionable, modern insights, AI necessitates an entirely new infrastructure. With the release of AIRI/S, powered by FlashBlade®/S, NVIDIA DGX A100 systems, and end-to-end networking based on NVIDIA Quantum and Spectrum networking platforms, Pure has taken the next step in its partnership with NVIDIA. AIRI/S provides enterprises with a proven, simple, and scalable architecture for all phases of the AI data pipeline. In addition, AIRI/S is the first solution to feature Pure's groundbreaking new FlashBlade/S, which offers significant improvements in non-disruptive performance, density, power economy, and scale, resulting in optimal alignment with DGX systems' industry-leading AI training performance and parallelism benefits. "Traditional approaches to AI infrastructure often result in silos of servers and storage that are either over-spent on capacity or starve AI workloads. With a focus on simplicity and scalability, AIRI//S enables global enterprises to achieve better time to insights and make the most out of their data with AI. We're incredibly excited to expand on our collaboration with NVIDIA to deliver the next-generation of AI-ready infrastructure." Amy Fowler, Vice President, Strategy and Solutions, FlashBlade, Pure Storage Customers can also take advantage of both always-modern infrastructure subscriptions and valid, consumption-based storage subscriptions by leveraging Evergreen/Forever (formerly Evergreen Gold) and Evergreen/One (formerly Pure as-a-Service) to manage their investments as they grow their AI infrastructure efficiently. "Enterprises are turning to AI to grow top-line results while enhancing customer experiences and reducing costs. These complex challenges require integrated, full-stack computing optimized for AI, and AIRI//S built on NVIDIA DGX systems provides customers with modular, high-performance enterprise infrastructure that scales easily as these demands continue to grow." – Charlie Boyle, Vice President, DGX systems, NVIDIA.
