Kubernetes is an open-source container orchestration platform that provides an efficient and scalable way to manage containerized workloads and services. The platform is based on a distributed architecture that enables it to manage and scale containerized applications across multiple nodes in a cluster. It plays a vital role in ensuring data security in containerized environments, providing "multiple layers of security measures" to protect the data.
