About the Ebook
Being agile is something every business strives for: adapting quickly to the latest trends, keeping up with competitors, and better serving customers and employees. These are all more essential than ever before and can be accomplished with modern applications and APIs, as many companies are already doing. However, today’s modern app architectures introduce their own security challenges due to being modular and spanning distributed environments. This free NGINX eBook discusses how organizations can maintain app deployment speed while incorporating security practices earlier into the software development lifecycle (SDLC) with help from NGINX App Protect WAF.
NGINX App Protect WAF integrates easily into CI/CD pipelines to remove friction between SecOps and DevOps with automated declarative security policies that can be consumed as code. This eBook explains how by being closer to your applications than traditional WAFs, NGINX App Protect WAF allows you to rapidly update security policies, delivers high performance, is platform agnostic, and can be used with NGINX Ingress Controller for Kubernetes security, alongside API gateways, and as a lightweight, low‑compute solution when moving your modern apps to the cloud.
