NetFoundry adds Zero Trust software into cloud metrics platform Prometheus

Edge security company NetFoundry incorporates its Zero Trust security software into event monitoring and alerting solution Prometheus to give additional scraping options and security.

Prometheus, which the Cloud Native Computing Forum says is used in 86 percent of all cloud projects, will now feature NetFoundry’s OpenZiti software. It gives developers and operators the functions for zero-trust networking in identity, authentication, authorization, encryption, policy, least-privileged access, and programmable, and app-embedded software-defined networking in apps and solutions. NetFoundry says scraping is possible without VPNs, bastions, and open inbound firewall ports.

Dave Hart, chief technology officer and co-founder of NetFoundry, says, “Using OpenZiti, we gave Prometheus the superpower to scrape any target regardless of where that target is or what network it is on. This helps ops teams get the agility, velocity and automation they need, while the security team gets the strongest security done the best way – by design and invisible to the operational teams.”

Companies such as as CI/CD automation provider Ozone use the solution to connect to their customer networks, eliminating the security vulnerabilities of open inbound ports and complex firewall rules.

“OpenZiti allowed us to innovate and drive new business with a competitive edge,” says Moteesh Reddy, Ozone technical lead. “Today, Ozone is the only CI/CD tool that automates private cluster deployments across any platform providing customers with zero trust, secured application delivery for private Kubernetes clusters.”

NetFoundry is also contributing Zero Trust branches of open-source tools such as Helm and Kubectl to Prometheus.

Other edge users of OpenZiti include private 5G edge for Microsoft and IoT devices for TOOQ. LiveView uses NetFoundry’s embedded Zero Trust networking for its video surveillance platform.
