Now, hundreds of millions of dollars are flowing into the growing market for protecting Kubernetes from cyber threats.Published 7:44 pm EDT, Monday, June 24, 2019. It's a market that is likely to continue to accelerate in the months ahead as organizations increasingly rely on Kubernetes for day-to-day operations, and asthe risks of potential security exploits grow. Kubernetes is also widely used by organizations large and small including Tesla, Spotify, CERN, eBay, IBM, Oracle and both Uber and Lyft, among others. Even Apple is getting in on the game, announcing on June 11 that it has joined the CNCF as a platinum end user member. Kubernetes integrates a container engine, and provides a way for companies to run and deploy large volumes of containers in a coordinated and resilient way. As companies big and small use containers to deploy and run applications that are part of business operations, there is a need to make sure they stay secure.

Amazon, Google and Facebook Warrant Antitrust Scrutiny for Many Reasons – Not Just Because They’re Large

GOOG AMZN +2 more GOOG AMZN GOOGL FB

Amazon, Google and Facebook Warrant Antitrust Scrutiny for Many Reasons – Not Just Because They’re Large. There's a growing chorus of U.S. politicians, antitrust scholars and consumer watchdogs calling for stricter antitrust treatment of Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN), Google(NASDAQ: GOOG)(NASDAQ: GOOGL), Facebook(NASDAQ: FB) and other tech giants. Some even say they should be broken up. Most recently, U.S. lawmakers launched a sweeping review to determine if these companies have become so big and powerful that they are stifling competition and harming consumers, while federal regulators are also gearing up to take action. But, when it comes to whether Silicon Valley giants are abusing their market power, size is only part of the problem. Consumers don't have to pay a dime to chat with friends on Facebook, search for the best route using Google Maps, exchange emails, comb the internet for facts and figures or engage in countless other activities. So an antitrust policy that focuses on consumer price doesn't see a problem. But the data about what consumers do, where they go, who they know and what they buy has great value to companies like Google and Facebook. And we're required to give up that data in exchange for "free" use of their products. What's more, this data gives these companies an extraordinary market advantage.
