Cequence partners with Tetrate to Embed Security on Cloud-Native Apps

Cequence Security | January 27, 2022

Cequence partners
Market leader in API security, Cequence Security, has partnered with an enterprise service mesh company that manages the complexity of modern, hybrid cloud application infrastructure called Tetrate. This partnership will integrate API discovery and security into modern cloud-native microservices applications. Using the Cequence API security platform, this new partnership will expand the single pane of glass offered by Tetrate to encompass API discovery, detection of security risks and threats, and native inline protection against threats. This will enable API development and SecOps teams to discover, manage and continuously monitor their multi-cluster, multi-cloud microservices deployments from a centralized location.

Integrating Tetrate Service Bridge (TSB) and Cequence API Sentinel will produce a simpler, faster, and more scalable solution for our customers. Combining our ability to simplify infrastructure and operations with Cequence’s state-of-the-art API monitoring and governance capabilities was a no-brainer. It’s a win-win for both companies,”

 Varun Talwar, CEO, and Co-Founder of Tetrate

Service mesh plays a crucial role in implementing zero-trust design and DevSecOps concepts by enabling security and reliability to join microservices across infrastructures without using any additional code. With the rapid pace of development and the naturally scattered structure of these apps, discovering and protecting all of the API endpoints exposed by microservices is complex. This can lead to apps being made available to the public without adequate discovery, security, or monitoring by security and operations personnel.

President and CEO of Cequence Security, Larry Link, stated, “Cequence has a long history of meeting the application security needs of organizations by using leading edge technologies like containers and service meshes, and we’re thrilled to be partnering with Tetrate to take that commitment to the next level.”

The integration of Tetrate and Cequence Security shortens the time and effort required to add discovery, security, and monitoring to cloud-native apps. In addition, it enables security to scale with the application using the same underlying orchestration layer.
