Trial ? Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.

Security is everyone's concern, and capturing risks early is always better than facing problems later on. In the infrastructure as code space — where Terraform has been an obvious choice to manage cloud environments — we now also have tfsec, a static analysis tool that scans Terraform templates to find potential security issues. Our teams have been using tfsec quite successfully. The tool is easy to set up and use, which makes it a great choice for any development team determined to mitigate security risks to prevent breaches before they happen. Its preset rules for different cloud providers, including AWS and Azure, compliment the benefits that tfsec brings to the teams that use Terraform.
