THE CHALLENGE? SUPPORTING CONTAINERIZED APPLICATIONS SECURELY
Leveraging containers enables you to develop cloud-native apps with a “write once, run anywhere” methodology. That doesn’t happen in a vacuum, though. Containerized applications need native application delivery mechanisms to deliver optimal performance. Sticking with the traditionally static, IT-managed configuration is at odds with the agility you need to keep up with the spinning up and down of microservices containers that can happen on a minute-by-minute basis.
HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO
When you employ a micro-services-based solution, you need app security and performance solutions that are aligned with that dynamic architecture. You should be able to manage your app services as code and integrate them into the CI/CD workflow. You need reliable application delivery services integrated with the container platform management plane.
