The “agents or no agents” debate is ancient and eternal. Every decade or so, we go through another round of “agents are terrible, let’s end them” and “we need more visibility and control to secure the system, maybe we’ll call it a ‘sensor’ this time.” We ultimately always land on the same conclusion. There are no silver bullets. Today, the debate is alive and well because cloud is the new frontier, so surely agents are dead this time? We don’t think so.
Agentless is great to get you started in cloud security. If you’re not willing to accept blind spots, you’ll need agents and other approaches too.
