November 30, 2018 Aporeto, the Zero Trust security solution for microservices, containers, and the cloud, allowing companies to achieve granular application segmentation, announced today that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Container Competency status. This designation recognizes that Aporeto offers a technology, product or solution on AWS that secures workloads on containers. The solution supports AWS services in a way that improves the AWS customers’ ability to run workloads on containers. These products help optimize orchestration & scheduling, infrastructure, application build/test and application deployment on containers, monitoring & logging, security, or networking of containers.
Achieving AWS Container Competency status differentiates Aporeto as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that provides specialized demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success with specific focus on workloads based on security. To receive the designation, APN Partners must possess deep AWS expertise and deliver solutions seamlessly on AWS.
AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.
Aporeto support for AWS is intended to help enterprises efficiently deploy, manage, and secure applications at scale on various platforms including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) Linux workloads, Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) containers, and Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) Kubernetes pods. To uniquely fingerprint each workload, Aporeto combines metadata from the orchestration layer, the container, the operating system, and the AWS instance identity document. By combining these information sources, along with dynamic attributes such as image scanner inputs, Aporeto creates a strong cryptographic identity for each workload to authenticate and authorize virtually all network communications within a virtual private cloud (VPC), across VPCs independent of their region or availability zone, and across hybrid-cloud environments.

Aporeto is a Zero Trust security solution for cloud, containers, and microservices, allowing companies to achieve granular segmentation. The Aporeto platform protects cloud applications from attack by authenticating and authorizing all communications with a cryptographically signed identity assigned to every workload. Aporeto alleviates reliance on unmanageable error-prone IP white-list policies. A distributed homogenous security policy is enforced per workload independent of network or infrastructure configuration, enabling uniform security orchestration across multi-cloud environments.
