NGINX, Inc., the engine delivering sites and applications for the modern web, today announced the availability of NGINX Plus Certified Modules. Certified modules are partner-developed solutions that extend the power of NGINX Plus by providing advanced functionality to customers in areas such as security, identity and access management (IAM), device detection, application serving, and more. NGINX Plus Certified Modules provide the assurance that the partner solution has undergone NGINX's development and review process, and comes with business-level support available from the partner.
At launch, NGINX has already added a number of partners that have achieved NGINX Plus certification for their modules, including: DeviceAtlas, ForgeRock, Phusion, Ping Identity, Stealth Security, and Wallarm.
An NGINX Plus Certified Module has been built, tested, and verified by the partner -- passing through a rigorous test suite and other certifications required by NGINX -- to be fully functioning and ready to be deployed in any environment, whether on-premise or in the cloud. Additionally each certified module comes with direct support available from the partner to complement the support provided by NGINX, giving customers added confidence when deploying modules into production. In addition to passing the NGINX Plus validation suite, certified modules will be updated to properly support each new NGINX Plus release, ensuring customers are always able to take advantage of the latest features and functionality.
"NGINX Plus has quickly become the standard platform for enterprises to deliver high performing and scalable applications. Given the growth of adoption, it's natural that partners are building solutions on top of the platform and want to demonstrate that their solution is tested and certified to work with NGINX Plus," said Paul Oh, Head of Business Development at NGINX, Inc. "We look forward to growing the certified module ecosystem and delivering the highest quality solutions through the availability of the NGINX Plus Certified Module program."
To assist developers in creating high quality, commercially supported modules, NGINX has also announced the NGINX Plus Certified Module Program. The NGINX Plus Certified Module Program gives partners a confident path to build and deliver new capabilities on the NGINX Plus application delivery platform. By integrating their solution through the dynamic module capability first announced in NGINX Plus R11 they gain increased performance and flexibility with a standard interface to NGINX Plus across bare metal, cloud, virtual machines, and containers. NGINX provides design assistance, review, and support to developers to ensure that their module conforms to NGINX best practices. Customers can easily browse certified modules from partners, NGINX, Inc., and the developer community on the Certified Module Listing page.
