One of the main challenges enterprises currently face – whether they have an on-prem infrastructure or are running their workloads in the cloud – is application and network security. Data must be protected at all times, not just when it’s resting in a database or is placed in storage somewhere. Ensuring data protection while its moving means more than just encryption, it also means authentication and authorization.
A service mesh is a transparent infrastructure layer that sits between a network and microservices, as such it’s the perfect place to ensure data encryption, authentication and authorization.
