Kubernetes has become the multi-cloud OS for enterprises. In this series, we will look at what makes up an enterprise-grade Kubernetes stack, and the key tradeoffs for each component.
In this episode, we will take a close look at end-to-end security for Kubernetes. Here are some of the key questions that we will discuss:
1. What are the top 5 things I need to do to secure my cluster?
2. What do I need to consider for securing applications deployed in the Kubernetes cluster?
3. How do you recommend customers evaluate and compare the security solutions in the CNCF ecosystem?

Kyverno is a policy engine designed for Kubernetes.
Kubernetes supports declarative management of objects using configurations written in YAML or JSON. Often, parts of the configuration will need to vary based on the runtime environment. For portability, and for separation of concerns, its best to maintain environment specific configurations separately from workload configurations.
Kyverno allows cluster administrators to manage environment specific configurations independently of workload configurations and enforce configuration best practices for their clusters.
Kyverno policies are Kubernetes resources that can be written in YAML or JSON. Kyverno policies can validate, mutate, and generate any Kubernetes resources.

Kubernetes provides several tools to help secure your applications. Hence, proper configuration management is essential for security. In this episode of our Enterprise-Wide Kubernetes webinar series, we will discuss one such construct - Network Policies.
Join us to learn how Kubernetes Network Policies work and how to use them to control network communication between pods within a Kubernetes cluster, as well as communication between pods and other network endpoints. We will also demonstrate the configuration and use of Network Policies using Calico on AWS, centrally managed via Nirmata.
All major cloud providers have embraced Kubernetes. Using a cloud provider managed Kubernetes services is an easy way to get started with Kubernetes, as the cluster’s control plane installation and management are taken care of by the provider. There are several similarities in these offerings, but there also are some interesting differences.
In this webinar, we will compare the managed Kubernetes services from the top 3 cloud providers, discuss when to use managed Kubernetes services, and what else is necessary for enterprise-wide Kubernetes use cases.

When applications that are deployed in Kubernetes need to be accessed from outside the cluster, an Ingress needs to be created. In Kubernetes, Services can also be exposed via a Load Balancer. There are several options available to make your application accessible and the right choice may depend on your requirements.
In this webinar, we will discuss how Ingress and Load Balancing works in Kubernetes. We will also show a demo of how Citrix ADC serves as an Ingress device on a Nirmata managed Kubernetes distribution.

Enterprises are looking to automate end-to-end delivery of their applications. Creating continuous delivery pipelines, not only allows enterprise software teams to move faster but also enables them to respond quickly to any failures.
In this webinar, you will learn how to:
- Deploy an application to Kubernetes
- Upload code to Nirmata
- Create deployment pipeline in Jenkins
- Deploy development environments
- Deploy production environments

3. Discover Nirmata integrations with Vault.
Developing a cloud-native operation is fraught with challenges, from the technical and operational to those involving process and skill set. The adoption of containers is a key to overcoming this suite of challenges. Nirmata offers a turnkey solution that accelerates this adoption. Nirmata Co-founder Ritesh Patel describes exactly how Nirmata does it.
The journey to the cloud doesn't end with cloud adoption— in fact for many firms, it’s a story of more cloud, more complexity, more problems. Jim Bugwadia co-founded Nirmata to solve the problems of managing complex applications in the cloud through containers (the best way to manage enterprise applications) and Kubernetes (the best way to deploy and operate those applications in the cloud).
Virtualization has totally changed how IT teams and developers get access to infrastructure. Industry veteran Wayne Greene explains exactly what’s changed, the challenges the new paradigm poses, and why containers present the most compelling solution. With Nirmata’s SaaS offering for container management, you can focus on innovation and less on the nuances of infrastructure.
Anubhav Sharma, Nirmata’s head of business development and sales, discusses how Nirmata is uniquely able to translate the technical capabilities of Kubernetes into real-world business and organizational outcomes for customers. From IT Operations to DevOps, Nirmata can bring the power of Kubernetes to the entire enterprise—and its customers.
Nirmata VP of Engineering Damien Toledo explains how Nirmata’s roots in managing complex telco networks give the firm a unique ability to address the similar challenges of managing complex cloud environments. Damien also highlights why cloud-native applications offer so much value to the development process.
