A provider , has issued new research that shows that nearly 70 % of CISOs believe open-source security

solutions provide a faster way to secure their environments . Likewise , 78 % of CISOs believe open-source solutions provide them with access to the best and most current innovations in cloud
security and more than 60 % actively prefer to work with vendors who build open-source projects .
The report is based on a survey , commissioned by Aqua , of 100 USbased CISOs at Fortune 1000 or larger companies representing a cross-section of industries .

“ Perceptions of open-source software are evolving . What was once seen as potential risk is now seen as an enabler for both security and business ,” said Paul Calatayud , CISO at Aqua Security . “ This is particularly relevant for cloud native environments , which benefit from the rapid innovation and agility that are common within the OSS community . These characteristics support CISO interest in working with vendors who are actively supporting OSS projects .”
