About the book:
In 2023, cloud-native architecture has become the de facto standard for modern applications. But beyond the velocity and innovation fueled by this paradigm shift, dangerous challenges are also spreading unchecked. The old ways of securing applications in the monolithic world no longer work, while the complexity of dynamic microservice and API-driven environments make it impossible to secure applications manually. In this book, cloud security experts provide a simplified framework for understanding modern application security in a holistic and pragmatic way, while offering a vision for how engineering teams can protect themselves against the inherent dangers lurking in their stacks.
