WHY YOU NEED CLOUDENTITY
APIs are running wild with 80 percent of traffic taking place within the datacenter (East/West) and it’s largely unprotected. Cloudentity allows you to include the latest security measures for ALL traffic, providing authentication and authorization for EVERY user, service, and thing.
Tame Your API Wildlife
Wild APIs mean that when a hacker makes it into your network, they can jump across systems with little to no friction and extract data as they go. Cloudentity’s fine-grained security policies support authentication and authorization, securing traffic originating from all services, users, and devices down to the microservice level.
Classic Security Is Not Stopping Data Loss
Classic security devices are too far from the application layer to secure APIs in real time. The Cloudentity MicroPerimeter™ allows you to establish rules and policies for individual services or a small set of containerized services, allowing only authorized connections and denying everything else in a simple and scalable manner. We protect the datacenter from the inside out.
The claim of zero trust being made today refers to authentication and authorization for users and devices, yet services are equally important. Cloudentity offers the world’s only solution that supports authentication, authorization, and a complete audit trail for everything and EVERY transaction. It’s the first adaptive engine for all users, services, and things.
WHAT DOES CLOUDENTITY DO?
Through a zero trust approach, Cloudentity ensures that the right people, services, and things have the right access to the right resources in the right ways. With Cloudentity, you also have the ability to prove all those “rights” to the people who need to know.
Unified Security Policy
Cloudentity allows you to execute a unified security strategy from the first step of software development, integrating seamlessly with your CI/CD deployment strategies while supporting legacy infrastructure and even SaaS-based, third-party systems.
Dynamic authorization is available for every transaction, from the initial user authentication to every application to application transaction, and maintains user context. Cloudentity provides security and visibility to the inter-service transactions that make up 80 percent of transactions today.
TrUST Authorization Engine™
The TrUST Authorization Engine™ measures real-time transactional risk between users, services, and things. The solution can assess and evaluate risk on a transactional basis and provide dynamic authorization flows to mitigate the risk.
Each transaction creates a comprehensive, digitally signed audit trail from authentication to data access via unique individual transaction IDs and verified claims. It’s available to applications, microservices, APIs, containers, and server-less functions for frictionless fulfillment of governance and compliance requirements.
Choose a fine-grained security policy that supports authentication and authorization for all users, services, and things — the Cloudentity MicroPerimeter™. It can be deployed for individual services whether they are in the cloud or a hybrid environment.
The MicroPerimeter™ protects a small domain or a single microservice, operating unlike a centralized API gateway.
With a pluggable architecture, the MicroPerimeter™ can subject each request – incoming or outgoing – to custom transformation via configurable plugins.
Utility security requirements are no problem for the MicroPerimeter™. It can handle strong authentication, dynamic coarse- and fine-grained authorization, OAuth, SAML, OIDC, and so much more.
Small Yet Powerful
We’ve created the scalable solution you need. The tiny size of our MicroPerimeter™ means it can be used as a sidecar or deployed with every service instance, and it won’t cause code bloat.
Protect your cloud-native applications with Cloudentity services that have been prebuilt, pretested, and security reviewed.

BUILD ON WHAT YOU HAVE
If you already have security and identity platforms in use, don’t worry. Cloudentity’s microservice architecture works well with what you have.
Your existing platforms can’t participate effectively in microservice environments if they are still monoliths themselves, but having users change to a new authentication workflow or create a new identity may not be the right solution. With Cloudentity, you can choose the microservices you need.
Customize your solution with our MicroPerimeter™. You can offload transactional security through authentication and authorization, as well as leverage an existing identity platform for user management.
Cloud-first security spans multiple domains, which is why Cloudentity has prioritized simple integration. We have partnered with several major industry leaders and ensured that we can integrate our tools with a wide variety of security and identity technologies.
