Overview

The Aqua Container Security Platform provides development-to-production lifecycle controls for securing containerized applications that run on-premises or in the cloud, on Windows or Linux, supporting multiple orchestration environments.

Even when you understand security, it is difficult to create secure applications, especially when working under the pressures so common in today’s enterprise. The NGINX Web Application Firewall (WAF) protects applications against sophisticated Layer 7 attacks that might otherwise lead to systems being taken over by attackers, loss of sensitive data, and downtime. The NGINX WAF is based on the widely used ModSecurity open source software.
