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

Machine Identities You Can Trust

Cloud Native Decentralized Machine Identity
Because identities based on centralized and automated legacy identity services do not meet Zero Trust principles
Alert and warning icon

More than 80% of organizations have reported an identity-related breach.

Machine identities make up more than 40% of all identities in the average enterprise today. This number is expected to grow each year.

By 2026, it’s estimated that new devices will connect to the Internet at a rate of 5,000 per minute.

Significant Machine Identity Challenges

No identity chain of trust

The chain-of-trust for legacy automated identity services ends with a certificate authority and not the machine. Every cert issued to a machine is an entirely different identity.

Hopr's Solution

Give machines their own identity and secret credential system (Like a global passport). They operate and manage the system to build a chain of trust in the machine identity as it is used.

No identity trust verification

Legacy automated identity services do not meet ‘zero trust’ principles that require explicit trust verification. Machine identity certs are issued without trust verification.

Hopr's Solution

Establish workload identity and trust on deployment and verify it frequently. Rotate the identity frequently, too, to prevent identity theft attacks.

Complex connections across identity domains

Connecting machines (workloads) across identity domains is complex, costly, and challenging. The inability to determine identity trust across cloud environments increases risk, complexity and costs.

Hopr's Solution

A decentralized identity management system with mutually verifiable workload identity credentials and cloud native protocols produces high-trust, on-demand connections between workloads across all cloud environments.

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
Decentralized machine identity with frequent rotation prevents identity theft attacks.
True Zero Trust
Verification of the machine identity at every connection with another workload assures high trust.
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

BUILT FOR THE CLOUD AND FUTURE PROOFScalable “cert-free” decentralized identity and secrets management eliminates quantum computing risk.
DIFFICULT TO SCALE AND NOT FUTURE PROOF Complexity scales with centralized cert-based identity and secrets and keys are not quantum proof.
Fast time-to-value with DevOps only config and deployment into any Kubernetes environment.
Every new machine/container and every domain boundary adds secrets and key storage costs.
Storage of cryptographic secrets and keys is not needed for workload identities and secrets
Highly skilled and proficient devs needed to configure, deploy and test across domain ‘silos’.
