One of the great myths that the Cyber Security Trend Community debunks is the old saying that any news is good publicity.

JFrog has released its answer to the complicated problem of application transparency.

This is a mistaken impression.

The tendency to cover the fast-paced world of network functions virtualization (NFV), and its closely related and in many cases complimentary cousin software defined networking (SDN), is to focus on the technology.
