    Being able to inject end-to-end security and tracing without introducing performance issues is huge for our customers. With Kong Mesh and Kong, we know that our customers will get a flexible, high-performance solution for all their needs, now and in the future.

    Aaron Weikle , CEO at MS3

    With Kong, we knew that we would get something that would work perfectly with our technology today and set us up for where we want to go. 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.

    Since all regional payment systems were previously monoliths exposing APIs separately, the API gateway was a greenfield project for Verifone. "In moving to microservices, we knew we needed an API gateway."

    Hans van Leeuwen , Lead Architect at Verifone

    As these integrations scaled up, the addition of a robust API Gateway solution like Kong to our technology stack was a no-brainer.

    Deploy multi-cluster service meshes

    With Kong Mesh, support for a distributed service mesh across multiple zones, including Kubernetes clusters and virtual machines, is native and automatic:

    • Native multi-zone, multi-cluster, multi-cloud
    • Built-in policy propagation and reconciliation
    • Multi-mesh support for every team
    • AWS Fargate, AWS ECS, Windows compatible
    • OpenShift, AKS, EKS, GKE and more

    1-Click identity, TLS management and OPA

    With Kong Mesh, we can setup modern infrastructure that is automatically secure and easy to use, to prevent modern threats to our applications:

    • Zero-trust security, identity and encryption in one click
    • Automated certificate rotation and expiration
    • Bundled OPA support with no additional sidecar
    • Integration with Hashicorp Vault
    • Traffic permissions by attributes and geography

    Maximize observability and debugging

    The more decoupled and distributed applications become, the more important it is to capture metrics and traces to always identify when and where problems happen, and fix them fast:

    • 70+ observability charts out of the box
    • Service topology map
    • Native tracing via Zipkin, Jaeger or Datadog
    • Logging and metrics collection to any 3rd party
