Editor’s picks of the highlights from the past week.
Mesosphere is now D2iQ
Mike Fey, D2IQ
“As a company name, Mesosphere doesn’t represent the evolution of our strategy and the services we have offered our customers for some time. Thus, we felt the need to expand our identity. [.. We] are not walking away from ‘Mesosphere’ as a concept or a brand. In fact, it’s a critical part of our future, living on as a core solution category and offering.”
The refreshed brand and company name: D2iQ (which stands for Day-Two-I-Q).
Open Sourcing the Kubernetes Security Audit
Chris Aniszczyk, CNCF
Last year, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) began the process of performing and open sourcing third-party security audits for its projects in order to improve the overall security of our ecosystem.
The main takeaway from these initial audits is that a public security audit is a great way to test the quality of an open source project along with its vulnerability management process and more importantly, how resilient the open source project’s security practices are. With CNCF graduated projects especially, which are used widely in production by some of the largest companies in the world, it is imperative that they adhere to the highest levels of security best practices.
