Introduction:

The recent attack on Twilio has underscored the critical importance of application security and the need for robust measures to protect against potential vulnerabilities. In particular, securing the infrastructure-as-code (IaC) plays a crucial role in maintaining the integrity and reliability of your applications. This article highlights the significance of automated security solutions in fortifying your application infrastructure and explores how Prancer can help you achieve a robust security posture.

Understanding the Need for Infrastructure as Code (IaC) Security in Application Infrastructure

Infrastructure as Code (IaC) Security Explained: IaC security refers to the practice of implementing security measures throughout the development and deployment of your application infrastructure. It involves securing the scripts, templates, and configuration files used in managing and provisioning your infrastructure. The recent attack on Twilio serves as a reminder of the importance of incorporating robust security practices within your Infrastructure as Code (IaC) workflows to prevent unauthorized access and potential breaches.
