Aporeto Collaborates with Red Hat to Deliver Certified Security Capabilities for Red Hat’s OpenShift Container Platform

San Francisco, Calif., May 7, 2018– Aporeto, a Zero Trust security solution for microservices, containers and the cloud, today announced its collaboration with Red Hat, the world’s leading provider of open source solutions. Aporeto has completed Red Hat Container Certification and the resulting container has been published in the Red Hat Container Catalog.

With testing and certification complete, Aporeto containers are ready for production use on Red Hat OpenShift, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Atomic Host. Deploying fast to the cloud via cloud-native applications can require the rethinking of static, perimeter-centric security and moving to a Zero Trust security model. Aporeto aims to secure cloud-native applications orchestrated by Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform in private, public, hybrid and multi-cloud settings.

“As enterprises accelerate their migration to the cloud and adopt microservices and containers, security becomes a bigger concern,” said Amir Sharif, Co-Founder and VP of Business Development, Aporeto. “We are pleased to be working closely with Red Hat to provide enterprises with reliable and supported solutions with strong security features for the enterprise cloud.”

Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is an enterprise-grade platform to deploy and manage cloud-native applications built on industry standards, including Linux containers, Kubernetes and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. In addition to certifying for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, as an OpenShift Commons Member, Aporeto is committed to this community in which users, partners, customers and contributors come together to collaborate on OpenShift.

“Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is an enterprise Kubernetes platform designed to bridge the needs of developers and IT operations teams, and provide a consistent application and service experience across hybrid cloud infrastructures,” said Chris Morgan, global technical director, OpenShift Partner Ecosystem at Red Hat. “With its certification complete and as part of the Red Hat Container Catalog, customers now have even more choice in the ecosystem of solutions that work with OpenShift and can have more confidence knowing the container is supported by Red Hat, and partners like Aporeto.”

Aporeto is proud to be a partner in the Red Hat partner ecosystem. The Red Hat Connect partner program provides the foundational elements necessary for independent software vendors (ISVs) to learn, build, certify and software distribute their products. Most recently, Aporeto launched the first comprehensive microservices security solution, Aporeto Enterprise 2.0.

Key Features of Aporeto’s Core Capabilities:

Microservices & API Security:Aporeto offers zero touch service authentication, authorization and encryption. Users also have uniform API access control policy across services in public or private cloud, and composite user and app identity policy enforcement.
Network Security:Aporeto provides application micro-segmentation and workload isolation independent of network configuration, reducing compliance scope. The company also supplies protection against malicious application discovery, automated flow for telemetry logging and transparent encryption offload.
Identity Management:Aporeto enables automated application and service identity creation, validation, attestation and assignment with user identity and single sign-on integration. The platform includes a complete out-of-the-box PKI infrastructure for microservices and certificate issuance, verification, rotation, revocation and secrets management.
Threat & Vulnerability Management:Aporeto now includes continuous vulnerability analysis of container images and runtime threat detection and protection based on behavioral analysis. This security data makes possible advanced analytics and correlation of identity, network and application context for high-fidelity, cloud-native security alerting to external SecOps workflows (SIEM, SOAR, ITSM).

About Aporeto

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.
