Reduce Risk And Improve Security Through Infrastructure Automation

The Bad Guys Use Automation — Fight Fire With Fire

June 22, 2018


Why Read This Report

Today's security initiatives are impossible to execute manually. As infrastructure-as-code (IaC), edge computing, and internet-of-things (IoT) solutions proliferate, organizations must leverage automation to protect their business technology strategies. To do this, the traditionally distinct silos of infrastructure and operations (I&O) and security professionals must fuse their talents to deliver efficient risk management and compliance throughout the entire solution stack — with unprecedented speed, agility, and dependability. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and revises it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
