Secure, containerized deployment

Containerized applications can be hard to integrate with high-assurance hardware security modules. When the time from staging to production is critical, you need a proven deployment model and scripts that reduce the overall dev cycle. nCOP makes it easy to build HSM support into containerized solutions and provides a template deployment model without the worry of HSM integration.
