Cequence partners with Tetrate to Embed Security on Cloud-Native Apps

Cequence Security | January 27, 2022

Cequence partners
Market leader in API security, Cequence Security, has partnered with an enterprise service mesh company that manages the complexity of modern, hybrid cloud application infrastructure called Tetrate. This partnership will integrate API discovery and security into modern cloud-native microservices applications. Using the Cequence API security platform, this new partnership will expand the single pane of glass offered by Tetrate to encompass API discovery, detection of security risks and threats, and native inline protection against threats. This will enable API development and SecOps teams to discover, manage and continuously monitor their multi-cluster, multi-cloud microservices deployments from a centralized location.

Integrating Tetrate Service Bridge (TSB) and Cequence API Sentinel will produce a simpler, faster, and more scalable solution for our customers. Combining our ability to simplify infrastructure and operations with Cequence’s state-of-the-art API monitoring and governance capabilities was a no-brainer. It’s a win-win for both companies,”

 Varun Talwar, CEO, and Co-Founder of Tetrate

Service mesh plays a crucial role in implementing zero-trust design and DevSecOps concepts by enabling security and reliability to join microservices across infrastructures without using any additional code. With the rapid pace of development and the naturally scattered structure of these apps, discovering and protecting all of the API endpoints exposed by microservices is complex. This can lead to apps being made available to the public without adequate discovery, security, or monitoring by security and operations personnel.

President and CEO of Cequence Security, Larry Link, stated, “Cequence has a long history of meeting the application security needs of organizations by using leading edge technologies like containers and service meshes, and we’re thrilled to be partnering with Tetrate to take that commitment to the next level.”

The integration of Tetrate and Cequence Security shortens the time and effort required to add discovery, security, and monitoring to cloud-native apps. In addition, it enables security to scale with the application using the same underlying orchestration layer.

O’Reilly Announces Launch of Cloud Labs to Meet Increased Demand for Cloud Computing Skills

O’Reilly | July 13, 2022

O’Reilly, the premier source for insight-driven learning on technology and business, announced the launch of cloud labs, providing users with temporary access to a live cloud account alongside expert-guided instruction through its learning platform. Built to make cloud learning more embedded and effective in practitioners’ day-to-day jobs, cloud labs allow users to move seamlessly from learning new cloud skills to applying them on the job. O’Reilly’s initial cloud labs support Microsoft Azure, offering instruction for those who are just beginning to work with cloud-based solutions and services or are new to Azure. Cloud labs build upon the interactive learning environments that O’Reilly first introduced to its platform in 2019, which have now grown to include nearly 1,000 interactive labs and sandboxes to build hands-on skills in everything from Python to machine learning. With cloud computing on the rise, organizations around the world are seeking to hire cloud experts at an unprecedented rate. According to 2021 job data from Indeed, the share of cloud computing jobs per million increased by 42% from 2018 to 2021. To help meet this growing need, software developers and engineers are expected to have some level of cloud expertise. Authored by leading subject matter experts in cloud environments, each O’Reilly cloud lab is designed to be short, digestible, and practical. Cloud labs provide temporary credentials to a live cloud account and guide learners through real-world use cases with step-by-step instruction. Learners can follow along using either the cloud console UI or an integrated terminal (CLI), giving them the flexibility to practice applying the skills they'll need on the job in the way they prefer to work—and do so in a safe environment that won’t endanger existing systems and doesn’t require additional setup. “Nearly every enterprise today relies on cloud technology. As a result, the demand for cloud talent has shot up. However, cloud environments have notoriously steep learning curves, which makes obtaining that necessary experience no easy task. By pairing top-quality instruction with access to live cloud resources, our users gain hands-on experience with the most used cloud environments. Because they have the freedom to make mistakes without consequences, practitioners learn how to solve tangible business problems. And that adds enormous value for their organizations.” Laura Baldwin, president at O’Reilly The initial launch of cloud labs will target introductory-level job roles and high-yield certifications for those working with Microsoft Azure. Future content releases and enhancements will expand cloud labs into more intermediate and advanced areas for learners who need to add additional cloud expertise to their skill set, with cloud labs on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud to follow.
