Identity is a Game Changing Model for Cloud Security - So What is it?

About this talk

Migrating workloads to the cloud can be a daunting task for many enterprise organizations. This is especially challenging when trying to combine an on-prem static environment that relies on IP addresses for security with the dynamic nature of the cloud, where IP addresses are ephemeral by design and any unsecured endpoint can leave your business exposed. Have you been thinking, if only there was an easier way to make security uniform across my entire cloud/hybrid environment, is backward compatible, future built, easily scales, infrastructure agnostic and provides end-to-end visibility all within a single tool? The answer is YES! The solution is Identity!
 Aporeto uses rich identity (not IP addresses) to eliminate the constraints from traditional Firewalls, VPNs, Cloud Security Groups, SDNs, and virtual appliances. Aporeto fingerprints servers, services, and workloads to generate actual application identity. Application identity enables stronger security because it only allows sanctioned whitelist communications. Security policies remain portable and persistent. Aporeto enables distributed workload protection with centralized visibility and control. In this webinar you will learn: •How Aporeto uses identity context, vulnerability data, threat monitoring and behavior analysis to build and enforce authentication, authorization and encryption policies for applications.
 •How Aporeto auto-generates a unique workload “fingerprint” by combining workload metadata from any available system and user identity data from OIDC-compliant providers.
 •How Aporeto allows you to microsegment and secures your network across heterogeneous infrastructures that include: containers, Kubernetes, serverless, service mesh, and VM architectures for a Zero Trust security posture. Presenter: Mark Jimenez, Technical Marketing Engineer, Aporeto
