Datawire Announces Ambassador Edge Stack Integration with Signal Sciences Next-Gen WAF
May 07, 2020

Datawire and Signal Sciences announced a partnership that allows engineering teams to protect against malicious attacks while enabling developers to deploy microservices securely and with confidence.

The Ambassador Edge Stack integration with Signal Sciences next-gen WAF empowers developers to adhere to an organization's security policies while supporting their ability to build and deploy services fast. Teams can feel confident that the right security measures are put in place to protect against malicious threats - such as authentication, rate-limiting, TLS encryption, and now WAF configuration - without impacting developer productivity.

This integration makes it easier for organizations to configure a next-gen WAF for all incoming traffic at the cluster edge. With the integration, a filter and plug-in enable teams to send the metadata of all incoming requests to Signal Sciences next-gen WAF from Ambassador. Depending on whether the WAF allows or denies the request, Ambassador will either allow or block traffic from entering the cluster.

"While security has become increasingly more complex with the shift from monolithic applications to a highly distributed microservices architecture, our integration with Ambassador drastically simplifies this process," said Jonathan DiVincenzo, VP of Product Management at Signal Sciences. "Both software development and security teams can now gain immediate visibility, secure their applications and scale their protection easily without the need for code changes or constant tuning."

"With this WAF integration, you and your executives can have peace of mind that you've got protection throughout the entire development life cycle," said Bjorn Freeman-Benson, SVP of Engineering at Datawire. "Developers can have confidence in a strong security footprint to protect their systems from malicious attacks, even as they rapidly deploy dozens (or hundreds) of services."

Ambassador Edge Stack integration with Signal Sciences next-gen WAF is the most recent technology partnership, reinforcing Datawire's commitment to helping organizations address the most pressing challenges in managing microservices on Kubernetes at the edge. Additional Ambassador Edge Stack integrations include authentication with popular IdPs (Keycloak, Azure Active Directory, Okta, etc.) through AuthO/OpenID Connect, observability with Prometheus, Grafana, distributed tracing with Zipkin, Lightstep, and service meshes (Istio, Consol, and LinkerD).
