Cloud Native Architecture: Guidance for Digital Enterprises

While strictly-segmented and compartmentalized business and IT structures may have worked for organizations in the past, they’re no longer effective in any fast-paced, dynamic company. The cloud native philosophy is about freedom. The enterprise isn’t tied to any particular provider or operating systems and enjoys simplified program management as a result.

Cloud native can be a challenge to implement, but it pays dividends in the long run. That’s why, at New Context, we make it a central component of our strategy. With our end-to-end solutions, we take the challenge out of the initial implementation and allow organizations to reap the benefits of a scalable, flexible, and more efficient system.

Understanding the Basics of Cloud Native

Cloud native is a significant change from many other architectures where program frameworks depend on the industry and the use case. The entire philosophy avoids categorization. As such, the framework and infrastructure will be the same regardless of the organization’s industry, whether financial, healthcare, utilities, or something else entirely. Some of the key aspects of cloud native include:

The above components help organizations build scalable, efficient, and flexible frameworks to support long-term computing needs. That’s why, at New Context, we make cloud native a central component of any strategy.

How New Context Supports the Cloud Native Digital Enterprise

The start of any cloud native strategy is always the most challenging part. This is especially true when moving from a more traditional, static framework. At New Context, we address these issues with an end-to-end approach that combines several supportive philosophies:

  • Lean security intelligence: Lean is a time-honored, flexible method of managing programs throughout industries. We’ve incorporated its strategies into cybersecurity processes with our LS/IQ approach that eliminates waste and targets the most prevalent risks. Methods break down to straightforward, actionable suggestions customized for a specific organization.

  • DevSecOps: A big problem with DevOps is that the focus on speed may come at the expense of security. We follow DevSecOps principles by making security a fundamental component of the process. This ensures the rapid development of a secure program while minimizing risks.

  • Secure, compliant data platforms: Data security and portability are essential. API tools, DevSecOps based strategies, integrated logs, and containerization allow us to build frameworks that protect data while allowing its free, unencumbered flow.

  • Research: Dynamic systems come with dynamic problems. We stay ahead of the biggest threats to the industry by automating detection and building in responses. Predictive threat modeling helps guide better cybersecurity decisions in the face of even the most sophisticated attacks.

  • Complete system reviews: You should not have to start from ground zero when you’re redesigning a security program. We complete an end-to-end assessment and consider how your current resources can fit into a new model. It’s a cost-effective, efficient approach to updates.
