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

Simple, Secure, On-Demand Application Networking

Simply connect applications, services, and microservices located anywhere
Connecting applications and services across clusters, container systems, and clouds doesn't need to be so complicated

Most organizations using Kubernetes and service mesh have been unable to see the expected ROI.

Organizations with multi-cloud environments experience high difficulty in managing workload identities across multiple clouds.

67% of respondents in a recent IT survey reported delaying or slowing down deployment due to Kubernetes security concerns.

Complexity and Identity Silos Inhibit Application Networking

Complex and costly implementation

Connecting workloads in different cloud environments with federation mechanisms is time-consuming and complex.

Hopr's Solution

Provide application and service workloads with their own Identity Manager and a trusted identity credential that is verified each time workloads connect.

Centralized Identity services impede connectivity

Centralized and automated "cert-based" identity services create trust boundaries and this inhibits connectivity to applications outside the boundary.

Hopr's Solution

Eliminate trust boundaries with a decentralized identity management system where application workloads manage and rotate their own identities without boundaries.

Lack of workload identity chain-of-trust

Automated certificates are issued without vetting a workload's trust. Trust is only implicit. And each new cert is a completely new workload identity with no prior history.

Hopr's Solution

Provide a Machine Alias ID (MAID) to trusted workloads at deployment and rotate it frequently with a mechanism to verify trust at each connection.

Learn about AMTD with high identity trust

An Automated Moving Target Defense prevents attacks. But Hopr's AMTD goes further and ensures that workloads are trusted whenever they connect and data-in-transit is fully encrypted everywhere.

Valuable Benefits

Lower cyber risk
Applications achieve high trust ultra-secure connections by default.
True Zero Trust
The 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

SECURE NETWORKING. Only trusted applications or services can connect (at either layer 4 or layer 7); all untrusted connections are prevented.
Application connections are permitted based on authentication of static keys, which may be stolen and used by bad actors.
UNCONSTRAINED NETWORKING. Trusted applications can connect on demand across all cloud environments without constraint.
Applications can only connect easily within their identity silos. Connections across silos is complex and costly.
GREATER COST EFFICIENCY. Cost of implementation and operation is several factors less than centralized cloud services.
Central cloud services for identity federation, certificates management, key management are costly for implementation and operations.
