eXate Achieves Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification

eXate Achieves Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification and Automates Software Installation and Maintenance Across the Hybrid Cloud. Red Hat OpenShift Certified Operator brings portability and scalability benefits of containers across environments on the industry’s leading enterprise Kubernetes platform.

London, England - April 26th, 2023 - eXate, today announced that APIgator has achieved Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification. As a part of this partner ecosystem, OpenShift Operator Certification offers customers and independent software vendors (ISVs) greater confidence when building their next-generation software projects on Red Hat OpenShift, the industry’s leading enterprise Kubernetes, and containers application platform. As a Red Hat OpenShift Certified Operator, eXate aims to help protect data with added security measures instantly with just a flick of a switch.

eXate is a platform for enforcing data security policies and dynamic attribute-based access controls for data in motion and data at rest. It implements and applies data privacy by default, helping organizations access their data faster, while reducing the risk of leakage, misuse, and non-compliance. eXate has achieved Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification for APIgator to make it simpler for Red Hat OpenShift customers to enforce secure data exchanges that are visible and monitored in a low or no code implementation.

Red Hat OpenShift is a consistent foundation to deliver Kubernetes applications, especially benefiting hybrid cloud management models. Kubernetes is the engine that powers container orchestration in Red Hat OpenShift. Kubernetes Operators are a way to package an application with key human operational knowledge and best practices to automate management and deployment on top of Kubernetes. They help businesses to increase the overall manageability of production environments by reducing manual intervention and human error. To make it easier to build Kubernetes applications, Red Hat and the community created and maintain the Operator Framework, an open-source toolkit to build and manage Operators in an automated way without extensive Kubernetes knowledge.

A Red Hat Certified OpenShift Operator is continuously monitored to reduce interoperability or security risks and is backed up by collaborative support between Red Hat and its partners.

eXate participated in Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification, an offering in Red Hat Partner Connect, Red Hat’s technology partner program, by which partners can certify their Operators for use on Red Hat OpenShift. Red Hat OpenShift Certified Operators have been additionally validated beyond the basic tests performed for the community Operators from APIgator passed Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification and will be listed in the OperatorHub embedded in Red Hat OpenShift and the Red Hat Ecosystem Catalog.

Red Hat Certified Operators in the OpenShift ecosystem provide a simplified path for software partners to deliver tested Kubernetes applications on the industry’s most comprehensive enterprise Kubernetes platform. Customers and partners using custom-developed or third-party ISV Operators certified for Red Hat OpenShift can have greater confidence that these applications will increase operational efficiency of business application management when using them across a public, private or hybrid cloud architecture.

The Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification designation is awarded to Red Hat partners following validation by Red Hat. Each provider must meet testing and certification requirements to demonstrate that they can deliver a scalable, supported, and consistent Operator designed for enterprise cloud deployments. The global program provides customers, ISVs, and partners with the confidence that Red Hat product experts have validated a solution so that they can achieve portability and operational efficiency across hybrid and multi cloud environments.

About eXate

eXate is a distributed software platform for enforcing data privacy, data protection, and dynamic attribute-based access controls on data in motion and data at rest. With fine-grained access controls, and the ability to apply the Principles of Least Privilege, eXate can automatically enforce data policies and control the flow of sensitive data within a firm and across geographic borders.

With more than 2/3rd of the world's population being covered under data protection regulation, the demand for data privacy by consumers is at an all-time high. 87% of consumers have indicated that they will not do business with a company who does not protect their personal data. As a result, 94% of companies now share privacy metrics with their Boards, and it is getting exponentially harder for organisations to stay on top of current data privacy demands.

Securing data is hard. eXate makes it easy.
