  • Top 3 Strategies to Secure & Govern Your Microservices Recorded: Aug 31 2020 57 mins
    Aaron Qayumi, Product Marketing Manager, Kong Inc. | Marco Marquez, Senior Solutions Architect, Kong
    Microservices adoption is well underway at many organizations. As services become increasingly distributed, it becomes critical for organizations to look beyond fragmented and ad hoc approaches to securing and governing services. 

    Rather than waste time with redundant coding efforts across service teams and manual processes that drain developer efficiency and increase risk, organizations need tools to effectively ensure security across hundreds to thousands of services. 

    Join Kong’s Senior Solutions Engineer Marco Marquez and Product Marketing Manager Aaron Qayumi as they present best practices and practical use cases for ensuring security on your journey to microservices adoption.  

    Key takeaways: 

    - Achieve consistency across distributed services with fine-grained traffic and security policies
    - Encode governance into onboarding via roles-based access control (RBAC)
    - Gain comprehensive visibility into performance and threats across services, teams and environments with AI-based traffic monitoring and anomaly detection

    Kal De, Mirantis | Marcelo da Cruz Pinto, McAfee | Marco Palladino, Kong | Christian Paulus, Kong
    What do technology leaders need to know to drive business innovation and remain competitive in 2020?

    In our first annual 2020 Digital Innovation Benchmark, we explore how today’s leading organizations are using emerging technologies to enable business innovation. A new survey of senior technology decision-makers revealed:

    - Innovate Fast or Die Fast. Nearly 40 percent of technology leaders believe organizations will go under or get acquired by 2023 if they lag behind in digital innovation.

    - Digital Transformation: Microservices as an Innovation Driver: Eighty-four percent of organizations have embraced microservices architectures to accelerate innovation efforts and stay competitive.

    - Adopting Distributed Architectures and Microservices: The Challenges. More than 40 percent of organizations have challenges with securing, scaling and/or ensuring performance for their APIs when connecting services. Ninety percent of technology leaders agree that securely connecting applications and ensuring performance at scale are one of the greatest technical challenges of the 21st century.


    In this roundtable discussion, Kal De of Mirantis, Marcelo da Cruz Pinto of McAfee and Marco Palladino of Kong will share their perspectives on the survey findings and discuss the real-world consequences of falling behind in digital innovation in 2020.

    Key takeaways:

    - Why microservices-based architectures can be a lynchpin for successful digital transformations

    - The challenges that organizations are facing in adopting microservices and how they are addressing these difficulties

    - The advantages of using open source as a way to launch new initiatives quickly
