Yes, also in many cases the app being hosted on the platform could 
exposes services in a self contained manner ( a legacy DB ? ), taking it 
off the wire natively allows the app to run inside the virtualised 
container without needing to rely on C3's iptable or ssh ( as an example 
), which might in turn have reported public vuln's no longer being patched.
