Serverless computing will force enterprises to change the way they think about security, Ron Gula, co-founder and president of Gula Tech Adventures, said in a statement. “Serverless offers tremendous improvements in speed, simplicity, and cost-savings, but it also presents a host of new threats and security challenges that traditional application security cannot handle,” he added.
