I'm carrying out some research work on NGINX because I am in academia. All my use cases relate to scaling from private to public cloud and vice versa. The other use case is for our perimeter security for cloud-based EDCs. We are customers of NGINX and I'm a technical product manager.

We use this solution to protect our entire set of web applications. This includes protecting against vulnerabilities as a result of programming errors.

We use WAF as part of our security solution, protecting applications such as internet banking. It is used both as a web application firewall and for load balancing.

We generally use NGINX with a combination of docker downstream so we have a container running which exposes multiple boards. And in terms on which we are running NGINX directory maps into the ports. So there is a major use case and sometimes we use it for security headers forwarding.
