Automation Is The Key To Security And Efficiency In Cloud Era

Security is on the mind of Gluwork CEO and co-founder, Jeff Gray, when he talks about the role of networking and security in the modern cloud-native world. To this, he said, “The amount of drift that’s happened throughout the tens of thousands of network devices per enterprise is actually scary.” Gray then addresses the importance of automation and security when he says, “Being able to go out and discover the actual state, look at the vulnerabilities, and then be able to fix those vulnerabilities at scale instead of sending teams of humans that would take constant time and constant repainting of the house. You can’t even finish repainting your house before the next vulnerability comes out. This patching and this closing of the doors, only automation can do this.”
