Procedural Versus Declarative Language in Infrastructure as Code
July 22, 2020

Leading Vendor in Automated Penetration Testing



Infrastructure as Code (IaC) has revolutionized the way organizations manage and deploy their infrastructure. Within the realm of Infrastructure as Code (IaC), two main approaches are procedural and declarative language. This article delves into the differences between these approaches and emphasizes the importance of automated security solutions in fortifying application security. Discover how Prancer’s advanced solutions can help enhance your IaC security and protect your applications.

Understanding Procedural and Declarative Language and Their Impact on Application Security

Procedural Language vs. Declarative Language: Procedural language in Infrastructure as Code (IaC) involves defining the specific steps and procedures to achieve the desired infrastructure state. On the other hand, declarative language focuses on specifying the desired end-state, letting the IaC tool handle the implementation details. Both approaches have implications for application security, highlighting the need for robust security measures regardless of the chosen approach.

Leveraging Automated Security Solutions for Stronger IaC and Application Security

The Power of Automated Security: Automated security solutions play a critical role in fortifying application security within the procedural and declarative language approaches in Infrastructure as Code (IaC). By leveraging intelligent algorithms, continuous monitoring, and real-time threat intelligence, these tools can identify vulnerabilities, detect unauthorized changes, and mitigate security risks. Prancer, a leading provider of automated security solutions, offers comprehensive features to enhance IaC security and protect applications.

Choosing the Right Approach for Application Security with Prancer’s Automated Solutions

1. Securing Procedural Language Infrastructure as Code (IaC): For organizations utilizing a procedural language approach in Infrastructure as Code (IaC), Prancer’s automated security solutions provide continuous security monitoring to detect and respond to potential vulnerabilities and unauthorized changes. By automating security assessments and implementing proactive security measures, organizations can strengthen application security within their procedural infrastructure.

2. Embracing Declarative Language Infrastructure as Code (IaC) Security: In the realm of declarative language Infrastructure as Code (IaC), Prancer’s automated security solutions assist organizations in validating the security posture of their infrastructure templates and configurations. By conducting automated security assessments and verifying compliance with security best practices, Prancer helps ensure that the desired end-state is secure from the start.

3. Hybrid Approaches for Application Security: In some cases, organizations may adopt a hybrid approach that combines elements of both procedural and declarative language in Infrastructure as Code (IaC). Prancer’s automated security solutions offer flexibility in securing hybrid infrastructure, providing continuous security monitoring, vulnerability assessments, and compliance checks to address the unique requirements of the hybrid environment.

In addition to the automated security solutions highlighted above, Prancer offers features such as secure code storage, access controls, and real-time threat intelligence to further enhance Infrastructure as Code (IaC) security. With Prancer’s comprehensive suite of automated security solutions, organizations can navigate the procedural vs. declarative language landscape, strengthen their application security, and ensure the resilience and security of their infrastructure.
