While GitOps is known as a paradigm for managing cloud native applications, not many know it fits within platform management as well. Automating the provisioning and management of Kubernetes clusters abstracts away the issue of inconsistency that you get with cluster sprawl, all while shortening provisioning time by consistent automation.

But that’s not enough. A networking layer is a standard requirement when managing Kubernetes environments, yet traditional IT networking and security methods do not work. By default, Kubernetes environments allow any pod to connect to any other pod, creating security risks. Furthermore, legacy approaches to network security visibility do not allow for performance of threat detection, compliance monitoring, or incident investigations for Kubernetes workloads. Cilium is a zero-trust cloud-native networking layer providing the necessary security and observability of your Kubernetes environments.

What if you were to add your network and security operations into your GitOps workflows?

Join our webinar with Isovalent as we walk through how to easily add Cilium as a robust Container Network Interface solution using GitOps, and explore some of the Observability and Security features it provides.

You'll learn how:

  • GitOps helps you manage cloud native chaos
  • To save time creating secure, “user-ready” Kubernetes clusters
  • To apply Weave GitOps to Kubernetes platform management
  • To improve network security and network observability using Cilium
