We provide guidance on where to deploy application services in a Kubernetes environment, using WAF as an example. Depending on your needs, it can make sense to deploy your WAF at the "front door" of the environment, on the Ingress Controller, per-service, or per-Pod.
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.
We explore three factors that hamper the speed of software development and delivery: dev teams are battling fatigue, tools aren't automated, and infrastructure is too complex. Find out how NGINX Open Source, NGINX Plus, NGINX App Protect, and NGINX Controller can help.
We explain why duplicating application services paradoxically can improve overall efficiency: because NetOps and DevOps teams have different mandates, it makes sense for them to select and manage the tools that best suit their specific needs.
Internal APIs are the real powerhouse of the API economy. We review some of their key benefits (efficiency and cost savings among them) and outline best practices, which include using an API management solution and high-performance API gateways, and decoupling the control and data planes.
Three NGINX customers replaced a legacy API management solution with NGINX Controller. We highlight the challenge faced by each customer and how Controller solves it, while delivering self-service, super-low latencies, and integration of API management into CI/CD pipelines.
The NGINX Controller API Management Module 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.
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.
The NGINX Controller API Management Module is a radical departure from traditional APIM solutions. Three key differentiators are an innovative architecture that decouples the control and data planes, suitability for multi-cloud deployment, and fair and predictable pricing.
Complying with the PCI DSS standard for protecting credit card transactions is one of the biggest challenges facing modern applications. NGINX App Protect secures your websites and apps against all PCI DSS vulnerabilities, the OWASP Top 10, and more.
