Fireside chat: How Box moved into automated dependency mapping and policy generation with API v3
Box is an early adopter of Kubernetes and has thousands of services running in multiple clusters. Managing security policies for such large deployments is a challenge.
Adopting the GitOps model helped Box manage its security policies because this model provides centralized policy management, change artifacts for compliance, and consistent policy enforcement across multiple clusters in a hybrid cloud environments. As the number of services within its Kubernetes cluster grew, Box wanted to simplify policy generation and enforcement. Box was able to move away from building and maintaining security policies by creating an automated and dynamic policy generation model through understanding upstream and downstream service dependencies.
