Aporeto Launches First Comprehensive Microservices Security Solution: Aporeto Enterprise 2.0 Introduces Application Identity as the new security control point for cloud-native applications

Aporeto is a Zero Trust security solution for microservices, containers and the cloud.

Fundamental to Aporeto’s approach is the principle that everything in an application is accessible to everyone and could be compromised at any time. Aporeto uses identity context, vulnerability data, threat monitoring and behavior analysis to build and enforce authentication, authorization and encryption policies for applications. With Aporeto, enterprises implement a uniform security policy decoupled from the underlying infrastructure, enabling workload isolation, API access control and application identity management across public, private or hybrid cloud.

"Aporeto is accelerating our expansion to the cloud. With Aporeto, we can secure our Linux workloads on any infrastructure with end-to-end encryption and have a path for modernizing with a security layer that is future-proofed."

Why Cloud Security Requires Strong Application Identity

Zero Trust security for microservices, containers and cloud works through the transparent generation of strong application identity. This identity is used for authenticating and authorizing application component interaction with themselves, user interfaces, and external services. Aporeto's approach, analogous to two-factor authentication for user interfaces, allows enterprises to securely continue their journey to the cloud and adopt more agile microservices while leveraging their existing, brownfield infrastructure without compromising them.
