Even though larger cloud providers offer security and implementation guidelines, companies still face significant risks and challenges when deploying secure applications to the cloud. A new class of security-focused cloud platforms promises to bridge this gap, bringing best-practices and regulatory compliance with the convenience of platform as a service (PaaS).
Notable examples of this type of company include Datica, Healthcare Blocks and Aptible, all founded in 2013 and all container-based. These companies boast elite security and DevOps teams that work to secure their products and write new features.
Their services are available at low price points and provide a convenient security framework that allows their customers to focus their development efforts on function rather than security.
