What are my design gaps, why are they important, where are they, and how should I fix them?

With our updated design gap content, it’s never been easier for developers to understand what their security design gaps are, why these design gaps are important, where these design gaps are, and what to do to quickly fix them.

Using oak9, you can finally eliminate the guesswork by catching security design gaps early as you update infrastructure as code (IaC) for cloud-native applications. Our platform is built right into existing development workflows starting in the design phase. You can visually depict your IaC and make security design changes with a simple drag-and-drop interface and get notified of security design gaps without ever leaving your workflow.

With this new feature, oak9 tells you:

  1. What is the security design gap?

  2. Where in the architecture does the gap exist?

  3. What is causing the gap?

  4. What is the business impact if I don’t fix it?

  5. How do I fix it? What part of the infrastructure-as-code do I need to change to fix it?

Oh, and by the way, if you want an executive view of all these design gaps, our new dashboard rolls all of these into a single pane of glass:
