7 keys to evaluating zero trust security frameworks

Cyber attacks

Zero trust as a framework for securing modern enterprises has been around for years, but is drawing renewed attention with the increase in cyberattacks. The United States government is pushing for zero trust implementations across all its agencies, and more vendors are jumping on board the already rolling zero trust product bandwagon. The mix of user need and vendor hype makes zero trust frameworks especially difficult to evaluate. Can a given zero trust solution stand up to close scrutiny? Buyers need to define and test an impartial, balanced set of complex criteria before making their purchase decisions.

Making MLOps easy for End-Users

Easy MLOps

Figuring out what people mean when they say “MLOps” is hard. Figuring out how to properly do MLOps, even for a technical person, is perhaps even more difficult. How difficult must doing MLOps be, then, for a citizen data scientist that knows nothing of web technologies, Kubernetes, monitoring, cloud infrastructure, etc.? Here I continue exploring how to set up an open-source MLOps framework for this purpose: specifically, I outline and show how a combination of Databricks, mlflow, and BentoML can potentially provide a compelling, extensible, and easy-to-use MLOps workflow for end-users.
