Disrupt the kill chain by focusing on application egress, what goes out to other internal apps, and outside your perimeter. Get real-time alerts with relevant context stitched.

With egress locked, even if an adversary compromises an app they cannot move and get trapped.

This enables the security team to create a defense in depth where every app acts as a hurdle the adversary must pass to reach your crown jewel.

Use Cases

Applicable consistently across VMs, Containers and Kubernetes

Visibility

Deploying Araali agents enables an inventory view of applications and their attack surface, privileges, and vulnerability scores - akin to a real-time pentesting report that is always current. 

Incident Analysis

Araali allows security teams to contextualize network access logs with the application context. This is very powerful in investigating and understanding inter-app communications as well as attacks. Most of the SecOps team spend a lot of time combing and correlating data across EDR, IAM, CloudWatch, and Firewall logs, which is time-consuming and frustrating, especially when IPs are ephemeral and gets reassigned. With Araali, the SecOps team can get all that goodness out of the box with comprehensive, long-term audits and economies of storing these audits in Araali cloud.

Data Breaches

Araali creates and tracks adherence to a least-privilege environment even in read-only tap mode. We may not be able to enforce and take action, but we can detect data breaches and anomalous movements. Instead of focusing on what is allowed in, we are continually guarding what goes out. 

Compliance

As Enterprise adopts new technologies like Kubernetes and Containers, they end up with a kitty of mixed technologies across time - BMs, VMs, Containers, and Kubernetes. Araali can cover applications running across these technologies and provide the right security controls to get to PCI, HIPAA, and SOC2 compliance.

External Services

As enterprises leverage SaaS services and partnerships, the datacenter perimeter is getting porous. Araali allows only known whitelisted apps to talk outside based on their non-repudiable identity - no malware, no APT. This is akin to adding a 2nd factor to programmatic PaaS access and not worrying about credential theft and data leaks.

Infrastructure Integrity

Application admission control allows only whitelisted applications to run - no crypto miner, no unsanctioned app.

Data onPrem / Hybrid environment

Enterprises find it challenging to configure firewall rules between dynamic app workloads in cloud and Databases on prem. Even if specific IP or VPC are opened, anything from that IP will be able to access the DB, including malware. With Araali running on both App and Database, it ensures only Apps with the right identity and privileges can talk to the Database. 

Partner Access

Enterprises integrate with or access partner applications or APIs to provide digital service. Enterprises want the right security assurances that no malware or APT moves from your premise to theirs. In Araali’s world, this is achieved by ensuring only the proper application with verified identities can talk outside. This eliminates malware movement from your premise to theirs. 

Kubernetes Security

Kubernetes creates a cluster-wide operating system of pooled resources without providing any automatic segmentation or isolation of the applications launched within. The current K8s security story is built around pods. A Pod is an IP address and is not granular enough to distinguish a good process vs. a malware running behind the IP. Araali enables out of the box segmentation of K8s along app boundaries. If one app gets compromised, it doesn’t affect another app running in the cluster. This allows enterprises to run Kubernetes as a cluster-wide operating system and yet achieve security and segmentation as an overlay construct.
