A “security as code” approach centered around NGINX App Protect is key to protecting your APIs. Integrate non‑disruptive security controls into your automation and CI/CD processes so that app security is baked in from the outset, not bolted on as an afterthought.
NGINX App Protect secures gRPC APIs by detecting malicious data in message headers and payloads, nested and complex data structures included. Define security policies in gRPC IDL files, and NGINX App Protect applies them immediately with no changes to its configuration.
We explain how production-grade Kubernetes solves the challenges of deploying containerized microservices-based apps, which include culture, complexity, and security. In addition to a Kubernetes infrastructure you need a scalable Ingress controller, WAF, and service mesh.
We introduce the NGINX Controller App Security add-on for Controller Application Delivery, which provides an app-centric, self-service way for app teams to enable WAF protection for their apps, while security teams can still define policies and monitor apps for compliance.
We explore some difficulties in developing cloud-native apps, and explain how NGINX software helps you solve them by reducing tool sprawl, controlling costs with lightweight solutions, and enabling SecOps to provide DevOps with self-service security that integrates into CI/CD pipelines.
We feature answers from our experts to three key questions about NGINX automation asked at the panel discussion we held during AnsibleFest 2020: how official roles and collections add value, how to choose which tasks to automate, and why community input is so important.
Announcing the NGINX Core collection on Ansible, with three roles to help you automate installation and configuration of NGINX Open Source, NGINX Plus, and NGINX App Protect. The collection is available in both community and supported versions.
We announce eight solutions that unleash developer speed without sacrificing the control infrastructure teams require. Get the details on NGINX Controller, App Protect, Ingress Controller, Service Mesh, and Analytics Cloud Service; F5 DNS Cloud Services; and Red Hat integrations.
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.
