Aporeto’s Partnership with Red Hat

Aporeto’s partnership with Red Hat is focused on security for cloud applications with network security, runtime protection, and access control powered by application identity.

Aporeto Enterprise seamlessly integrates into Red Hat OpenShift to enable Zero Trust security for microservices, containers, and the cloud. Aporeto secures OpenShift applications by building and enforcing authentication, authorization and encryption policies for application resources using vulnerability data, identity context, threat monitoring, and behavior analysis. OpenShift workloads may be deployed anywhere, including private, public, hybrid and multi-cloud settings. Aporeto centrally manages policies for OpenShift without requiring any application modification.

“As enterprises accelerate their migration to the cloud and adopt microservices and containers, security becomes a bigger concern. Aporeto provides an easy-to-deploy, centrally-managed Zero Trust security solutions for microservices, containers, and the cloud,” said Amir Sharif, Co-Founder and VP of Business Development, Aporeto. “We are very pleased to be working closely with Red Hat to provide enterprises with reliable, supported, and secure solutions for the enterprise cloud journey.”

“Customers are looking to migrate their applications to the cloud leveraging containers as the deployment model,” said Mike Werner, Sr. Director, Global Technology Partners, Red Hat. “Red Hat container certification assures a supportable platform for all types of customer deployment models. Red Hat is thrilled to work with software partners like Aporeto, resulting in the world’s largest commercial ecosystem for containers.”

Aporeto automatically generates security policies for all application resources based on their unique application identity and transparently orchestrates authentication, authorization, and encryption when those resources interact. System-level run-time protection and visibility are achieved through inspection of all communication.
