Save the dates for NGINX Sprint 2020, our virtual user event coming September 15–17. Join us Day 1 for product news, customer stories, and insights from a surprise guest. Day 2 we demo how to build an app infrastructure in just 90 minutes. Day 3 we select the winner of our NGINX for Good Hackathon – it could be you!
With NGINX App Protect, you no longer have to choose between security and performance. It combines the proven effectiveness of F5’s advanced WAF technology with the agility and performance of NGINX Plus, to address the security challenges facing modern DevOps environments.
We announce the technology preview of NGINX support for QUIC+HTTP/3 as pre-release software, available for interoperability testing, feedback, and code contributions. HTTP/3 replaces TCP with QUIC, which is designed to support multiplexed connections more reliably.
Release 1.8.0 of the NGINX Ingress Controller for Kubernetes introduces NGINX App Protect integration, extensibility mechanisms for NGINX Ingress resources, URI rewrites and request and response header modification, policies and IP address-based ACLs, and more.
The first NGINX for Good hackathon takes place September 14-17, 2020, coinciding with the NGINX Sprint virtual conference. Working with a team, you'll build a website or application that helps others. The winning app will be hosted by NGINX for six months.
We explore two use cases for filesystem isolation in NGINX Unit. First, we stop attackers from accessing sensitive information, by restricting a compromised app to its sandbox directory. Second, we toggle between sets of global dependencies by defining them in separate filesystems.
With NGINX Plus Ingress Controller for Kubernetes release 1.8.0, NGINX App Protect can be embedded in the Ingress Controller. This puts WAF protection closer to applications, which is crucial in modern app environments like Kubernetes. It also enables automation and reduces complexity and cost.
The NGINX Controller API Management Modules helps you solve the challenges of producing quality API documentation and keeping it in sync with multiple published API versions. Its centralized publishing process integrates the documentation into in your API development and maintenance workflows.
Amazon EC2 M6g instances deliver 54% better performance and 20% cost savings over x86-based instances with NGINX Plus as a reverse proxy and API gateway. They're powered by the AWS Graviton2 Processor, built on 64‑bit Arm Neoverse cores. Get all the details in Arm's whitepaper.
NGINX Controller 3.7 introduces some major enhancements. The API definition workflow is redesigned to extend Controller’s app‑centric model to the API Management Module. The Developer Portal is generally available. And there are new features for easier API management and more security.
The NGINX Load Balancer Operator is a reference architecture for automating reconfiguration of the external NGINX Plus load balancer for your Red Hat OCP or a Kubernetes cluster, based on changes to the status of the containerized applications.
We introduce the beta version of the NGINX Controller Data Forwarder, with an integration for Splunk. You create a single configuration in one place to capture enhanced data from all of your NGINX Plus instances and feed it to the monitoring infrastructure you've already invested in.
We compare AWS Application Load Balancer (ALB) with NGINX Open Source and NGINX Plus as a Layer 7 reverse proxy and load balancer. ALB has more features than at its debut in 2016, but we conclude that NGINX and NGINX Plus still provide more functionality and much more predictable pricing.
A combination of factors makes APIs rich targets for security attacks. We discuss methods for securing APIs throughout their lifecycle, from design and development through delivery, using WAFs, bot protection, API management tools, and API gateways.
