Amazon Web Services (AWS) built encryption into nearly all of its 165 cloud services. Modern apps require serverless architectures with a lot of automation and continuous security, said Amazon CTO Werner Vogels.
By continuous security, Vogels means a DevSecOps approach where security is built into the continuous integration and deployment model and "security is everyone's job." Old-style security — like firewalls — don't work in today's microservices world, he said. "If firewalls were the right security solution, we would still have moats around our cities. We don't. We protect our individual houses, we protect individual rooms in our houses. So we should do that in our digital systems as well."
