Container-orchestration platform Kubernetes has become an integral part of modern application development and delivery. Whether standing up a cluster or securing the critical interactions with and within a cluster, PKI and TLS certificates are foundational to Kubernetes and all internet security. AppViewX KUBE+ provides a central solution to discover, manage, automate, control and govern certificates across containerized workloads and Kubernetes infrastructure. Through holistic visibility, end-to-end automation, and policy control, AppViewX KUBE+ secures containerized workloads at scale while keeping speed and agility intact.
“With the wide scale adoption of containerization, the average enterprise has thousands of short-lived certificates across hundreds of Kubernetes clusters to manage,” said Gregory Webb, CEO of AppViewX. “This volume of certificates coupled with manual processes and siloed DevOps, SecOps and IT Ops teams adds to the challenges of securing Kubernetes. AppViewX KUBE+ enables cross-functional teams to automate and manage short-lived certificates at scale and speed to ensure security in complex cloud-native environments.”
