and Services

Gain visibility and empower application teams to provide security, governance and compliance

    Do You Have Visibility Into Your Security and Compliance Risks?

    Increased Risk of Breaches

    Developers are writing custom code for authentication and authorization into services that may be vulnerable to attacks.

    Obfuscated Security Threats

    Slow Time to Resolution

    The large number of services makes it hard to identify configuration changes that cause compliance violations and service disruptions.

Kong allows us to deploy on-premise, easily integrates with all the technologies we use across the company and gives us the flexibility we want to avoid vendor lock-in.
