In today’s highly competitive, technology-dependent world, speed of development is pivotal for businesses to succeed. Yet, while engineering teams are under extreme pressure to deploy faster and more frequently, security cannot and should not be sacrificed to meet those goals. Traditional security processes and technologies simply can't keep up with the complexity and scale of evolving cloud-native stacks, leaving security and developer teams with an unsustainable choice: either paralyze development teams with haphazard red tape or let dangerous risks lurk in the shadows until it’s too late. Security needs to be fundamentally rebuilt for the cloud-native world.
While cloud-native adoption enables speed and agility, the sheer volume of data produced by dynamic Microservices and API exchanges leaves Sec and Dev teams drowning in data. The security footprint in cloud native stacks has evolved by an order of magnitude from a few static VPCs and VMs to thousands of APIs, services, and data artifacts. Keeping up with daily or hourly changes in these highly dynamic environments is not humanly possible, and so teams are stuck in a reactive loop of addressing security breaches only after a major incident has drawn attention to a dangerous liability, many of which have the potential to take down months or years of engineering and business progress in moments.
Operant offers a single data-driven platform that addresses modern security needs at every level of the modern stack - from applications, to services, to data stores - without getting in the way of developers’ need for speed. Serving as a bridge between Dev and Sec teams, Operant provides the information and runtime enforcement that developers and security teams need to continuously reduce the risk profile of all deployments. The non-invasive RBAC Analytics and risk posture scorecards give unprecedented real-time visibility and actionable prioritization to all stakeholders, while policy-as-code enforcement provides a secure fairway for developers to deploy without waiting for security teams to give a manual green light.
Our unique solution is rooted in our proven expertise in security and distributed systems. Vrajesh, our CEO, built the multilayer security architecture at Apple. Meanwhile, Priyanka, our CTO, has a PhD in distributed systems and has built her career through architecting data processing and cloud systems at companies like VMWare.
