New Project (6)


Modern enterprises are moving to containerized computing environments to gain business agility and speed. Container infrastructures are a key component of digital transformation. However, containers, and orchestration tools like Kubernetes, introduce new security and compliance issues.

How can organizations maintain application delivery velocity while ensuring data integrity? Automation is the key.

At this virtual meet-up hosted by NeuVector, Rancher and Sonatype, our experts will share the secrets to securing applications and data from build to pipeline to production. You will learn tips and best practices that help development, operations and security teams implement security with development velocity as you expand container deployments.

And lunch (or snack) is on us!

In this 2 hour interactive session, including live demos and Q&A, you will learn:

  • How developers can accelerate application delivery without sacrificing security, even when using the open source software popular with DevOps cultures
  • How operations can deploy any application securely with automation
  • How security can create automated policy as code through behavioral learning and provide 360 degree visibility and actionable, accurate information about the entire container environment


All participants will receive a voucher for a meal or snack to enjoy during the meeting. At the end of the session we’ll reward your attendance with prize giveaways. And bring your Kubernetes and container security questions. We’ll answer as many as we can.

Who should attend?

- Developers, Software Developers
- DevSecOps and DevOps
- Lead, Security and Applications Architects
- Network and Application Security
- Kubernetes and Platform Architects
- Project Management
