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.
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.
Despite being mainstream, containers can drive higher risks and costs because of issues around security and complexity. In this webinar, we cover how Red Hat and NGINX are partnering to help your teams simplify application delivery in OpenShift environments.
The NGINX Ingress Operator for OpenShift is a supported and certified mechanism for deploying the NGINX Plus Ingress Controller for Kubernetes alongside the default router in an OpenShift environment, with point-and-click installation and automatic upgrades.
Release 1.7.0 of the NGINX Ingress Controller for Kubernetes includes certification of the Red Hat OpenShift Operator, support for TCP, UDP, and TCP Passthrough load balancing, a circuit breaker implementation, and improved validation and reporting for NGINX Ingress resources.
The NGINX Application Platform accelerates application delivery from code to customer with a comprehensive API delivery solution that spans from creation of API functions through their delivery to end users. Step-by-step instructions for configuring NGINX Controller and NGINX Unit are provided.
