A Swedish Managed Service Provider and Independent Software Vendor offers a modern, Kubernetes based container platform tailored for companies in regulated industries that want to be fast, innovative and enable a DevOps way of working while staying secure and compliant with regulations like GDPR, ISO-27001 and PCI-DSS. The company is looking for banking, fintech, regtech, medtech and biotech companies and cloud providers for commercial agreement with technical assistance.
Organisations across all industries are adopting containers for increased agility, developer productivity and increased availability and performance. To orchestrate and manage this dynamic, new environment of smaller microservices, Kubernetes has emerged as the de-facto standard.
A container is a standard unit of software that packages up code and all its dependencies, so the application runs quickly and reliably from one computing environment to another.
More and more industries like public sector, banking, fintech, regtech, iGaming, medtech and biotech are all facing increased regulatory pressure due their influence on society. Even companies not under industry regulations choose to adopt best practice controls like Critical Security Controls (CIS) or Service Organization Control 2 (SOC2).
Handling sensitive user data and adhering to regulations like GDPR, ISO-27001 or PCI-DSS can be hard in a dynamic, container-based environment due to multiple levels of abstraction and virtualization, which are hard to translate to regulatory requirements written with physical infrastructure and single-tenancy in mind. As such, proving to security teams that containers can be as secure, if not more, than traditional VMs have for the last few years been a challenge. Furthermore, with additional moving parts, attack surfaces increase.
Compliant Kubernetes (CK8s) is a highly secure, Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) certified Kubernetes distribution that allows organizations to enjoy the full benefits of Kubernetes while fulfilling regulatory requirements - not only when deploying new clusters but over the whole software development life cycle, through development, deployment as well as during operations and audits.
It its 100% open source and without lock-in, built on CNCF approved projects and compatible with upstream Kubernetes. CK8s helps fulfil regulatory standards like ISO-27001, GDPR and PCI-DSS.
CK8s also comes preconfigured with open source tools that makes life easier at audits and enforces compliance policies for your workloads. You can either base it on preconfigured templates (PCI-DSS, CIS etc) or modify it yourself.
As it's 100% open source customers are free to use, download and modify the code without cost. For customers wishing to operate CK8s themselves, the company offer both 8/5 and 24/7 support plans.
Due to Cloud Act and other forces that allow foreign entities to access user data, European companies are also more and more migrating their workloads to European providers. CK8s is also available as a complete managed service, hosted at European cloud provider partners.
