What Makes Observability a Priority

Organizations are managing a more diverse array of infrastructure than ever, which increases security, risk, and compliance concerns and affects service-level metrics. Monitoring and observability help address these concerns. However, monitoring is fragmented and significant data is unmonitored. Even so, as cloud, cloud-native, and open-source adoption, usage, and spending continue to increase, so do observability deployment and budget plans. Unfortunately, pricing and billing can be a barrier to achieving observability.

This white paper provides in-depth research about what makes observability a priority. It reviews how digital transformation is driving observability as organizations continue to shift workloads to multi- and hybrid-cloud environments and adopt open-source and cloud-native technologies, including containers, microservices, and serverless.

Implementing Automated Secrets Detection for Application Security

Dev & Ops teams from large organizations use thousands of secrets like API keys and other credentials in order to interconnect these components together. As a result, they now have access to more sensitive information than companies can keep track of.

The risk is that these secrets are now spreading everywhere. We call “secrets sprawl” the unwanted distribution of secrets in all the systems developers use. Secrets sprawl is even more difficult to control with growing development teams, sometimes spread over multiple geographies. Not even taking into consideration that developers are under hard pressure due to a growing number of technologies to master and shortened release cycles.

In this whitepaper, GitGuardian looks at the implications of secrets sprawl, and presents solutions for Application Security to further secure the SDLC by implementing automated secrets detection in their DevOps pipeline.

Third-Party Delivery Reimagined

Third party logistics (3PL) has evolved from being a popular buzzword in the logistics industry to a standard and sometimes necessary practice to streamline logistics operations. One such form of 3PL in the last mile has been coined “third party delivery” and involves companies outsourcing the on demand delivery of their products to third party fleets like Lyft, Uber, Doordash, and more.

In this white paper: “Third Party Delivery Reimagined”, we explore the first major implementation of third party delivery in the restaurant industry during Covid-19. This piece dives into the positives of this form of 3PL during this time and, more importantly, the shortcomings that these companies experienced.
