Hopr has developed a cloud native form of AMTD. This form has been designed and engineered for the cloud. It protects cloud applications and services that interconnect to share data. It also protects the data the applications share while it is in transit between the "workloads" that contain the app or service.Cloud Native AMTD protects containerized workloads located in any cloud environment: on-premises, commercial cloud, industry cloud, edge cloud, and any others.
In addition to rotating the workload identity and secret at a high frequency, Hopr's Cloud Native AMTD also prevents untrusted connections to a trusted workload, and prevents compromised API keys from reaching an API endpoint. Only API keys from trusted workloads reach the API endpoint.
Automated Moving Target Defense (AMTD) has been described by Gartner as the Future of Cyber. In the second webinar of our 5 episode series on AMTD, Hopr Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) Dr. Bill Lawrence examines the current threat landscape for a representative cloud network architecture and discusses a variety of existing applications security solutions and explains the gaps and shortcomings that lead to a continuing growth in API attacks. He further explains why AMTD is needed now to close the gaps and efficiently improve security. Dr. Lawrence also answers questions submitted by the webinar audience.
Tom McNamara, Founder and CEO of Hopr, discusses Automated Moving Target Defense (AMTD) and the importance of decentralized identity and security to the Future Creators community. Future Creators is a visionary community of technology and business innovators that consider strategic opportunities to monetize the global digital economy in the "zettabyte era" when there are billions of very small devices that interconnect and share data.
