14:00 – 14:50 – Secure Cloud Infrastructure – Identity First, Garrett Bechler, Ermetic

Cloud infrastructure is extremely complex, with thousands of workloads and data resources, service and human identities, and policies and configurations. With so many moving parts, it’s nearly impossible to clearly see or understand what is going on in your AWS, Azure and GCP environments – let alone control it. Efforts are exacerbated by the rapid pace of development, shortages in cloud expertise, and the number of stakeholders.
Ultimately the most important question is – Is my data exposed? Who can access it? Only with clear, contextual, actionable risk insight into all identities, configurations and resources can you begin to grasp effective access and the risk to your data. Find out how an identity-first approach to cloud security can help you reduce your cloud attack surface and blast radius, and stay compliant.

15:00 – 15:50 – Ship code faster with guaranteed outcomes: Mirantis Kubernetes Engine, Stephane Beaumont, Mirantis

17:00 – 17:50 – Ensure Holistic Protection for Modern Apps and APIs.  Mats Johansson, F5 (NGINX)
Today’s application landscape has changed dramatically. Modern apps are microservices that run in containers, communicate via APIs, and deploy via automated CI/CD pipelines. NGINX App Protect is a modern app security solution that works seamlessly in DevOps environments as a robust WAF or app level DoS defense, helping you deliver secure apps from code to customer.
