Traditional network perimeter tools are no longer adequate in a hybrid cloud environment. With thousands of microservices and containers deployed across a hybrid infrastructure that includes one or more public cloud providers, the “perimeter” tends to disappear.
In addition, highly distributed application architectures and complex infrastructure deployments have significantly increased the attack surface that needs to be protected. Similarly, the exceedingly decentralized data management that is typical of today’s cloud-native applications makes it very difficult for organizations to know where all of their assets reside and whether they are protected and being handled in a compliant manner.
This is where Alcide’s cloud-native security platform fits in. Alcide provides Ops teams with visibility into the infrastructures and applications they are charged with managing, regardless of the network or compute they are using.
