Docker announced a collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to simplify the lives of developers by allowing them to focus on application development, streamlining the process of deploying and managing containers in AWS from their local development environment.
Apolicy launched the public beta of its cloud-native policy orchestration platform.
Launching with initial support for Kubernetes, Apolicy is the first solution that automates risk assessment, policy management and remediation across any stage of the development process, at scale. The company is also announcing they have raised $3.5 million in seed funding from StageOne Ventures with participation from a number of notable angel investors.
Enterprises today are in a race to build new products faster to meet customer demand. This has fueled the adoption of container-based platforms like Kubernetes by companies looking to deliver scalable, flexible, and distributed applications. But Kubernetes is highly complex with many moving parts and configuration points, making managing, deploying and enforcing policies a Herculean task for DevOps and security teams. Apolicy overcomes these challenges by automating and simplifying risk to policy to remediation processes at any stage of the development lifecycle.
"Companies have become reliant on industry standards and benchmarks to secure their Kubernetes environments, but a one-size-fits-all approach to setting and enforcing policies or guardrails is simply not enough," said Maor Goldberg, CEO, Apolicy. "That's why we created Apolicy: to provide prescriptive and accurate risk analysis, policy orchestration and remediation in a unified platform."
The key benefits and capabilities of Apolicy's policy orchestration platform include:
- Accurate risk analysis and complete visibility of clusters and workloads.
- Declarative policies (as code) based on research and industry practices with automatic suggestions based on the organization's workloads and services.
- Customizable remediation playbooks and prioritized remediation tasks.
- Orchestrated policy authoring and remediation processes, which reliably drive clusters to their desired state.
The public beta is available today.
