Aporeto is an identity-based security solution. Not only user identity, but also workload identity. That is, when using Aporeto, workloads can only talk to each other when their identity is authenticated by fingerprint and authorized by policy. Aporeto decouples the network infrastructure from security, adding a whole new dimension to microsegmentation strategies.
