The Mesh7 Cloud-Native Application Behavior Security solution is a SaaS-based offering specifically designed to address the complicacy inherent in securing modern cloud-deployed applications with ephemeral and heterogeneous workloads.

FREMONT, CA: Mesh7, the leader in cloud-native application security, declared the instant availability of their second generation Cloud-Native Application Behavior Security solution for enterprise clients. Supported by Splunk & Juniper Networks, Mesh7 is the first company to offer an end-to-end cloud-native application security product utilizing a distinctive approach of modeling application behavior that collects and correlates contextual data from APIs, public cloud data-event logs, host processes, user identities, and threat intelligence.

Fortune 100 CIO, Karl Gouverneur stated, "The increased complexity of native cloud deployments creates application blind spots that lead to inefficiencies, magnify risk, and make it more difficult to manage and troubleshoot threats and compliance issues. The Mesh7 Cloud-Native Application Behavior Security solution addresses these concerns with a distinctive, effective approach that helps safeguard the stability and resiliency of today's cloud deployments."

The Mesh7 Cloud-Native Application Behavior Security solution is a SaaS-based offering particularly designed to address the complicacy inherent in securing modern cloud-deployed applications with ephemeral and heterogeneous workloads.

"The problem that inspired Mesh7 was how do you take the inherent complexity of running highly distributed cloud applications and simplify it enough so DevSecOps teams can quickly innovate and deploy new capabilities, yet do it in the safest way possible. The challenge was how do you incorporate deep layer 7 insights like, API, schema, payload and even service-level discovery, with cloud and third-party reputation telemetry in one place? The answer was to create a contextually aware, multi-telemetry AI/ML based modeling engine purpose-built for natively deployed cloud applications," said Amit Jain, co-founder of Mesh7.

Mesh7 is highly different from traditional approaches for cybersecurity by its groundbreaking application behavior security architecture, including:

• Auto-discovery and host processes and Mapping of services, API payload & schema, PII data flow and access to shared public cloud services and external/3rd party egress domains

• API vulnerabilities, Continuous Baselining, Alerting and Mitigation of application behavioral changes, Anomaly Detection, threats and data leaks

• Deep Forensics on the basis of intelligent data collection and correlation across network traffic, APIs, PII data flows and services with contextual telemetry data from public cloud logs, payload, and third-party threat-intelligence and reputation systems
