The conference presentation discusses the importance of policy-based governance and automation in improving security and operational efficiency in Kubernetes.
- Customers need a policy management system that is multi-cluster and oriented towards splitting clusters into different application teams.
- Existing IT operational processes and tools should be combined with policy-based governance to achieve automated governance.
- Policy-based operations are becoming increasingly important in Kubernetes, especially for securing it and achieving compliance.
- Policy management is a configuration management problem that can help achieve desired configuration state for every control at every layer of the software stack.
- Customers are starting to convert homegrown scripts into policies and apply policy management techniques to automate security controls.
Customers are driven by enterprise security requirements and regulatory compliance requirements, which can be a pain point when dealing with audits. Policy management is becoming a way to manage configuration and achieve continuous security readiness and audit readiness. Customers are starting to convert homegrown scripts into policies and apply policy management techniques to automate security controls.
