What the company does: Nirmata’s Kyverno is a unified management system for deploying and managing Kubernetes clusters for cloud-based application containerization, providing governance, compliance, security and automation for production Kubernetes workloads and clusters.
CEO Quote: “Kubernetes gives a lot of flexibility in the way that workloads are deployed. Yet developers may not know 80 percent of what needs to be configured, nor should they. Kyverno gives users the ability to focus on what matters—their workloads and applications—by aiding the adoption of Kubernetes policies rather than requiring users to learn and adopt new ones.”
