A Stoic Conversation: The Myth of Hidden Services

A Stoic Conversation: The Myth of Hidden Services

In a modern co-working space filled with greenery and soft jazz, Elise, a cybersecurity expert with years of hands-on experience, discusses Azure with Max, a CTO looking to expand his company's digital footprint. A holographic display showcasing Azure's services glows between them.

šŸ”¹ Max: "Elise, everyone keeps saying we need to put our PaaS services behind private networks. It sounds safer, right?"
šŸ”¹ Elise, raising an eyebrow: "Sounds, perhaps. But remember, PaaS is built for the web. It's like buying a sports car and then only driving it in your backyard."
šŸ”¹ Max, laughing: "That's an image! But really, isn't a private network more... secure?"
šŸ”¹ Elise: "It might seem that way, but PaaS offerings have immense built-in security. Sometimes, adding private networks can actually complicate things. Think of it like this: would you add more locks to a safe? Or would you trust that the safe is, well, safe?"
šŸ”¹ Max: "I see what you mean. So, it's about using these services as they're intended?"
šŸ”¹ Elise, nodding: "Exactly, Max. Keep it online, keep it secure, and keep it simple. The more convoluted the path, the easier it is to trip."
šŸ”¹ Max: "It's counterintuitive, but it makes sense. Trust the architecture, but ensure our use is spot on."
šŸ”¹ Elise, smiling: "That's the spirit. It's not about hiding; it's about shining safely."

In the digital age, where does your company stand? Hidden in the shadows or shining in its full glory?
Do all PaaS solutions in Azure or AWS really need to be hidden at all times?

Do all PaaS solutions in #Azure or #AWS really need to be hidden on a private network at all times? Is it worth the time spend, and does it really achieve the goal set out, doesn't it make misconfiguration easier? Let's assume there is a breach already on the network, then what?
