In recent years, REST-based microservices have gained broad adoption in organizations seeking to take advantage of distributed architectures. As new use cases such as IoT continue to gain traction, however, organizations are increasingly adopting advanced protocols such as GraphQL, gRPC, and Kafka to compliment their REST microservices. The addition of these emerging protocols creates new challenges for organi- zations in how they connect, secure, and manage services with different protocols across varying environ- ments, platforms and patterns.
