Aporeto Application Identity-Powered Security

Aporeto provides critical security capabilities required for cloud applications including network security, runtime protection and access control. These security capabilities are powered by application identity, a distinctive approach to uniquely identify and protect application resources. Creating unique identities for each application resource allows Aporeto to automatically create custom protection policies and enforce security at a granular process level regardless of where the application runs. At runtime, the addition of behavioral and vulnerability data, enriches the resource identity to create dynamic security visibility and protection capability.
