Baffle Extends Data Protection Service to AWS Lambda Serverless

February 19, 2019 / Sean Michael Kerner

Although serverless compute functions are short-lived, the data sources and information that they connect with are often not, potentially opening up a new avenue of risk for unprotected data.On Feb. 19, Baffle announced that its data protection platform has now been extended to support the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Lambda serverless compute platform. With serverless, which is also referred to as functions-as-a-service, events trigger functions to execute, without the need for a long-running, persistent server."The fact that we have application transparency lends itself really well to this new transformation where you don't even have a traditional app server," Ameesh Divatia, CEO and co-founder of Baffle, told eWEEK. "Because of the fact that serverless just accesses a data repository, we're able to provide a layer of abstraction in that particular environment."
