In this operations-focused course, you’ll deep dive into all the features of the Docker Enterprise platform, and discover how it enables a secure software supply chain from development to production. We’ll discuss managing and enhancing your Kubernetes and Swarm applications through Universal Control Plane, how to harden image security by building pipelines in Docker Trusted Registry, and how to enhance the security of the Docker Enterprise platform via operational best practices.
