The rise of microservices, powered by Kubernetes and service mesh, enables companies to rapidly deploy distributed, scalable apps. Distributed applications bring about a significant security challenge: the need to inspect the network traffic that microservices generate and block malicious requests.
Istio, a Kubernetes service mesh provider, offers a varied feature set including a wide array of traffic management controls. Envoy Proxy is an open-source edge and service network proxy which helps organizations achieve greater scale by moving from monolithic to microservices-based architectures. But moving fast to iterate your codebase increases security risk.
In this webinar, Doug Coburn, Director of Professional Services, will walk you through how a next-gen WAF like Signal Sciences can protect containerized apps that leverage cloud-native frameworks. He’ll also show how security teams can gain the visibility required to inspect east-west traffic between the services that power distributed modern applications.
