Hopr named as AMTD leader in Gartner's "Hype Cycle for Endpoint Security, 2023"

Container Workload and Endpoint Protection

How to prevent attacks on workload endpoints using a cloud native AMTD
Effective attack prevention differentiates trusted workload connection from untrusted connections.

68% of organizations have experienced one or more endpoint attacks that successfully compromised data and/or their IT infrastructure.

Application programming interface (API) attacks are now the most-frequent attack vector used against enterprise web applications.

Threat actors look for endpoint security misconfigurations; they take advantage of configuration complexity to gain endpoint access.

Three Reasons Applications Often Invite Attacks

Application Endpoints Use Static Credentials

Static identity and secret credentials are stolen and misused by threat actors. There is no way to know if credentials are misused until it is too late. And there is no way to assure a user is protecting their credentials.

Hopr's Solution

Rotate the identity and secret credential at a high frequency to disable threat actors. Enable applications to manage their own IAM system.

Authentication is Failing to Protect Endpoints

A recent survey revealed 78% of API attacks occurred on authenticated APIs. Authentication is no longer a safeguard for application access. Threat actors with stolen credentials gain unauthorized access.

Hopr's Solution

Identity trust verification and encryption of messages verify trusted endpoint access. API keys may be passed, but if stolen they won't pass decryption.

Malware Evades Detection

TLS encryption hides malware in messages sent to an application endpoint. Removing encryption and scanning for malware is challenging at the speed and scale of the cloud.

Hopr's Solution

Malware, even if TLS encrypted, fails SEE™ decryption when it arrives at an application endpoint. It is automatically logged and immediately discarded.

Valuable Benefits

Lower cyber risk
Verified identity trust and AMTD reduce the attack threat.
True Zero Trust
Identity of Applications is frequently verified.
Fast time-to-value
Onboarding, configuration and deployment of Hopr Connect by an average-skilled DevOps can be achieved in about 5 days.
Lower costs
Consumption-based pricing and the elimination of multiple centralized cloud services reduces costs.
Simple deployment
Configuration of a DevOps YAML file in automated CD production is all that is needed.
No code changes
Modification of existing services, application, and API endpoint code is not needed.

Compelling Advantages

Synchronous Ephemeral Encryption protects data in transit over the entire route between applications.
TLS or mTL encryption is not supported everywhere in the cloud and can be broken by threat actors and responsible organizations.
High trust in the identity of applications is assured before applications connect to interoperate.
Automated PKI identity certs do not vet the identity trust of receiving parties. Replace certs are entirely new and different identities for Apps.
High frequency rotation of endpoint access credentials prevents untrusted connections from reaching an endpoint.
Authentication of static access credentials does not prevent threat actors from using static credentials for unauthorized endpoint access.
