Learn how to succeed at security, observability, and traffic management initiatives using Istio.
Enabling Defense-in-Depth for Enterprise Applications
With the inter-service and inter-node communication within microservices, security schemas need to function with a zero trust mindset. A key vulnerability is communication between services. Encrypting all communications with mTLS is important for security and compliance. Istio automates mTLS everywhere.
Increasing Kubernetes deployment and management efficiency
Microservices, such as on Kubernetes, create traffic and management challenges. Istio is designed to enable fast, efficient deployment and management. See how it is accomplished in an example Kubernetes implementation.
Instituting Observability and SRE Best Practices
As a tool for service and reliability engineering, Istio provides insightful metrics at the service and proxy level as well as standardized dashboards. Configure them for key uses across the organization such as identifying problems and designing for reliability.
