Your applications are highly distributed and constantly changing. What was earlier the complexity of code in monolithic applications is now translated to complexity of interactions amongst microservices. East-west traffic and constant flux during scale up and scale down scenarios makes these applications difficult to monitor and secure using traditional means. This lack of visibility is significantly amplified for containerized applications running in public or mixed cloud.
Perimeter based security solutions are completely blind to east-west traffic and application behavior including resource access patterns, changes in system and application behavior. Deepfence runs along with your services and monitors network activity, resource access patterns and overall application and system health.
In addition to east-west traffic, Deepfence also monitors integrity of host and container file systems, running processes, and flags anomalies in resource access patterns.
