The modern enterprise’s cloud operations consist of many workloads running different services — some under the jurisdiction and purview of DevOps, while others are owned by dev alone. In such a complex and ever-changing landscape, well-structured tier-based monitoring and management are essential. Properly handled, the different moving parts have well-defined, intent-based communications patterns that reveal a great deal about how they ought to be approached from a security perspective.
Alcide lets you seamlessly collect and bake this information (from any number of environments) into your centrally orchestrated cloud security policies. This level of granular and hierarchical approach makes it easy to structure and enforce smart, application-aware and label-based policies. Alcide microservices firewall combined with rich policy language allows Developers, DevOps and Security teams to define network policies based on not only IP ranges, but also internal services and even external domain names.
