The Runtime Application Protection Platform

Operant shields your applications with fine-grained enforcements across every interaction and every cloud.

All Runtime Protection isn't Equal

With zero instrumentation, your applications will be more secure

With a single-step install that takes less than 5 minutes, Operant provides unprecedented insights and fine-grained controls

Runtime Risk Scanning & Analysis

Get instant visibility of all APl-endpoints, service interactions, and security gaps, including real-time catalogs for all your APls, Kubernetes services, and RBACs.

  • Live insights available with a single-click install
  • Identify and prioritize risks across all application layers
  • View the entire application stack across any cloud and any cluster in dev, staging and production with no instrumentation or application code changes

Runtime Enforcement

Enforce fine-grained security measures across APls (native and 3rd party), Kubernetes clusters, data stores, and legacy endpoints.

  • Take action on risks directly within Operant's interface
  • Create security policies and automatically extend them across the entire cloud-native environment
  • Enforce security policies within application internals drilling down to the level of specific API calls and service identities

Vulnerability Scanning for APIs

Beyond static API testing, get real-time insights on vulnerabilities and runtime risks from internal, legacy and third party APIs

  • Dynamically protect against novel API attack patterns without the limitations of static tools
  • Identify and take control of undocumented and shadow APIs, which exist outside normal processes and controls
  • Identify and immediately remediate exploitable vulnerabilities in APIs directly through Operant's interface

Dynamic Microsegmentation

Stop lateral attacks within any application’s internals with L7+ identity-based microsegmentation controls.

  • View all the real-time information needed to create Zero Trust segments for APIs and Services
  • Dynamically enforce rulesets based on relevant cloud-native identities, not based on irrelevant networking layer IP identities
  • Extend dynamic microsegmentation policies, namespace and identity/RBAC controls drift-free across Kubernetes clusters and multi-cloud setups

Policy-as-Code at Scale

Create and enforce new security policies across multiple environments and clouds with policy-as-code outputs.

  • Export all of your Operant policies as policy-as-code for full control and extensibility in any cloud
  • Policy-as-code creates transparency and enables DevSecOps collaboration
  • Built-in GitHub integration fits with your GitOps workflows

DevSecOps Guardrails

Shift left with proactive security guardrails applied across dev, staging, and production.

  • Implement guardrails that specify acceptable application behaviors to achieve continuous security improvements
  • Bring reactive and proactive practices together into guardrails based on real-world data
  • Stay in control of what guardrails are applied to which environments, regardless of scale and speed

New vulnerabilities need new solutions

Cloud adoption has expanded attack surface while security enforcement still falls dangerously behind
Of data breaches in 2022 were caused by known vulnerabilities awaiting a patch
Of cloud-native companies experienced at least one security incident in their Kubernetes environment in the last 12 months
Of cloud engineering teams have delayed or slowed down application deployment due to security concerns

Operant's novel technology closes the control loop to truly protect applications in real-time

Real-world Example

A new shopping cart K8s deployment relying on third-party APIs was left open to the internet, where attackers used a machine identity to enter the company’s application internals and initiate a lateral attack. With instance scaling, new IP-addresses were dynamically assigned and the hard-coded network layer rules did not work. This breach in the shopping cart instance allowed the attacker to hop through the recommendation service and payment service instances, eventually stealing customer PII data
stored in their AWS S3 bucket.

How Operant Solves It

Only Operant is able to stop this kind of lateral attack because Operant understands all of the live application traffic flow across every layer of the application and has the ability to enforce security policies within your environment:

  • Operant identifies the open API instantly
  • Operant provides immediate remediation enforcement action through its SaaS control plane
  • Operant enables security and platform engineers to set up new zero trust policies governing access controls to prevent future lateral attacks
  • Operant enforces those policies at runtime without drift in any new K8s cluster that is assigned via rule logic
