We recently interviewed Michał Kasprzak, SecOps/SysOps Administrator of TraceRoute42. We asked him about his company’s customers’ secure access to the Kubernetes cluster.
PIA: What does your company do?
Michał Kasprzak: TraceRoute42 is a technology consultancy firm with a vast expertise in infrastructure architecture, design & maintenance. We help startups and enterprises create bulletproof architectures and choose an optimal solution during the concept phase or implementation of major functional changes. We advise on how to prepare for changing factors and parameters of system load, security breaches, unexpected emergency situations, and their impact on project resources.
