GMO GlobalSign Introduces Kubernetes cert-manager Issuer for Improved Security in Kubernetes Workloads

New Issuer enables Kubernetes cert-manager users to quickly obtain trusted TLS certificates 

BOSTON, MA, February 28, 2024 -- GMO GlobalSign, Inc., a global Certificate Authority (CA) and leading provider of identity security, digital signing and IoT solutions, today announced the availability of an Issuer for Kubernetes cert-manager. Made from an integration from GMO GlobalSign's certificate management platform, Atlas, the new Issuer enables cert-manager users to quickly obtain trusted TLS (X.509) certificates, improving the security of Kubernetes workflows. With 5 million daily downloads, the popular open source enterprise tool simplifies the process of certificate issuance and management in Kubernetes.  

Kubernetes cert-manager issues certificates from a variety of sources such as GMO GlobalSign. The new integration solves the problem of Kubernetes workloads running with insecure capabilities in production environments. Many enterprises use Kubernetes for managing production workloads but they run with insecure certificates, such as self-signed certificates to secure communications within the clusters. But now with GMO GlobalSign's Issuer for cert-manager, enterprises can obtain trusted TLS certificates to authenticate and secure communications within Kubernetes clusters hassle-free. 

"Our Issuer for Kubernetes cert-manager helps enterprises secure their Kubernetes clusters, no matter the type of project that it involves. IT provides a trusted TLS certificate that is easily, and automatically, installed," said Yateesh Bhardwaj, product manager, GMO GlobalSign. "We are also pleased to be one of the few players in the CA marketplace to introduce a trusted Issuer for cert-manager - providing a seamless solution to secure your Kubernetes workflows."

GMO GlobalSign's Issuer for cert-manager will appeal to a variety of software professionals, including DevOps engineers, infrastructure engineers, Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) engineers and software engineers.

The cert-manager Issuer is free and available via GitHub.
