Open Policy Agent Featured by Styra Team and OPA End Users in 10 Events at Virtual KubeCon | CloudNativeCon Europe 2020

Sessions show how open source project Open Policy Agent enables teams to secure and accelerate Kubernetes and microservices deployments with cloud-native authorization

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. — Aug. 12, 2020

Styra, Inc., the founders of Open Policy Agent (OPA) and leaders in cloud-native authorization, announced today that company executives, founders, maintainers, as well as OPA end users and contributors will deliver 10 separate sessions at KubeCon | CloudNativeCon Europe 2020 Virtual on OPA best practices for cloud app authorization, policy and security. OPA is a general-purpose policy engine that solves a number of policy-related use cases for cloud-native environments. 

As enterprises move containerized/cloud-native applications into production, workloads need to be secure and compliant with relevant regulations before they reach runtime. During the sessions, Styra and members of the OPA community will show how OPA authorization provides solutions to these issues and will present real-world use cases for OPA, all proven in production by the open source project’s community of users.

The Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s flagship conference will gather adopters and technologists from leading open source and cloud native communities virtually from Aug. 17 – 20. Join the community for four days to further the education and advancement of cloud native computing.
