ESG Recognizes Apcera As The Most Secure and Trustworthy Container Management Platform

With a Focus on Security and Policy, Apcera Delivers the Only Enterprise-Grade Platform for Managing Containers in Production, at Scale

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 25, 2016) -   Apcera, the leader in enterprise container management, today announced that Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) has published a new report titled, "Apcera: A Container Management Platform Built for Secure and Trustworthy Operations." ESG describes the Apcera Platform as a "container management platform that is designed for legacy and modern applications with security and trustworthy operations in mind," and details Apcera's suitability for production as well as its use of policy and governance, differentiating it from other solutions on the market. 

The report, authored by Daniel Conde, analyst at ESG, states, "Apcera has understood from the beginning that running applications with trust is critical for production environments. It also addresses key modern trends such as loosely coupled, micro-service-based applications, use of on- or off-premises platforms, and the need to run legacy Linux-based workloads. However, trust delivered by security, compliance, and performance is at the heart of the platform and that makes it a pragmatic approach."

The report goes on to say "Apcera realizes that the focus of attention is at the application framework level, so it can deliver a platform with a focus on policy without re-creating a low-level infrastructure platform, which are provided by third parties such as Linux or public cloud platforms. This combination creates a distinctive offering. Even if major public cloud providers introduce policy capabilities into their platforms, enterprises will seek either a multi-cloud solution or a hybrid (on-premises and off-premises) cloud solution, and a common platform such as Apcera will provide for flexibility in choosing several underlying platforms without a significant redeployment cost."

"Apcera has taken an enterprise-first approach to container management, embracing both cloud-native and legacy applications," said Mark Thiele, chief strategy officer at Apcera. "The ESG report is a strong validation of our strategy and underscores our commitment to delivering a secure and production-ready solution for container management that truly addresses the needs of enterprise IT."

The Apcera Platform is the market leading enterprise-grade container management platform -- driven by security and policy -- that gives IT leaders the confidence and control to drive innovation and go faster, securely. Apcera is unique in that it allows for not just the containerization of cloud-native applications, but legacy Linux-based, x86 applications as well. By embracing a range of enterprise applications, Apcera is the only true enterprise-grade container management platform on the market today.
