Securing Serverless Applications


Petros Koutoupis

Access to services and data is what drives this little thing we refer to as the cloud. In the past decade alone, the paradigm shift toward a wider and more accessible network has forced both hardware vendors and service providers to rethink their strategies and cater to a new model of storing and, in turn, accessing information. With that comes the responsibility to develop on service-focused applications and integrate them continuously into a stable and controlled environment. And as more individuals and businesses connect themselves to the greater world, it becomes increasingly necessary to secure the information that travels across our networks. This is where a serverless computing model begins to shine.
