Our client, Mesh7, is a Silicon Valley-based start-up founded by IT industry veterans and backed by venture capital funds. Mesh7 has recently released its cloud-native Application Observability. This solution examines communication between microservices, visualizes the connections between them, shows potential threats and automatically applies security policies. With this product, Mesh7’s ultimate goal is to protect your microservices effectively while giving the user a clear overview of all the traffic between them from a security perspective.
As the application complexity resulting from interconnected ephemeral, heterogeneous and distributed workloads grows exponentially, so too do concerns about the security of such applications. Using cloud and 3rd party services, exchanging sensitive information at Layer 7 over a network - all these have created dangerous blind spots:
of the interactions between various workloads, cloud and 3rd party services
over the flow of sensitive data both internally and externally
anomalous behavior and unsanctioned changes in applications
of lateral threats and vulnerabilities at run time
Mesh7 decided to tackle these challenges by creating a complex platform to monitor communication between different workloads and apply automated security rules. The platform works on top of the customer’s infrastructure and ensures that no potential threat remains undetected.
CodiLime was chosen as an external technology partner to help Mesh7 build the product and keep the promises it has made to its clients and investors. Together we have succeeded in creating a product we believe will become the first-in-class solution for ensuring the security of microservices.
From the outset of our cooperation with Mesh7, CodiLime cooperated closely in defining project requirements, researching new ideas and testing possible technologies to deliver a truly market-defining product. We were responsible for backend, frontend, testing and project management. The development team consisted of three streams: one focusing on the backend functionality executed on the client’s side, another dealing with the controller cluster side collecting, enriching and managing data, and the last one focusing on data visualization and the user interface.
The reasons why Mesh7 chose CodiLime as a technology partner:
Our engineers have won prizes in international hacking competitions
for global industry leaders
that complements Mesh7’s
DevOps, backend, frontend and quality assurance
The Application Observability is the response to security challenges related to distributed applications with increasing data in motion. It correlates distributed data collection of East-West, Egress and Cloud Services with Cloud and Host monitoring data. The Application Observability provides four distinct values:
Thanks to SaaS model installation, it takes mere minutes to onboard the customer. The product can be used in any type of workload, cloud or environment. The modern user interface clearly visualizes all the necessary information. If you’d like to know more about the product, visit Mesh7’s website.
