Kong: Service mesh + API gateway: your dynamic duo for resilience, security, and scalability
APIs and Microservices are as widely used as they’ve ever been and continue to grow as building modern applications is infused into every organization. Unfortunately, that popularity brings an equal level of attention from attackers trying to exploit the unknown vulnerabilities in the application stack. Sound security practices, processes, and tooling, are essential to mitigating risks.
- APIs and Microservices can be vulnerable vectors of attack if not secured.
- Sound security pillars apply equally as they do to other technologies.
- Applying those pillars with an API Gateway, ServiceMesh, and other tools is a prudent and necessary response.
