In today’s rapidly evolving world of microservices and Kubernetes-based deployments, ensuring robust security and access control within your application architecture is paramount. As your application grows in complexity, managing authorization policies with Istio can become a daunting task, introducing potential errors and vulnerabilities.

This video explains how Gloo Mesh and Gloo Gateway, as a platform, simplifiy the process and provides a more granular and efficient approach to enforcing authorization policies in a zero trust environment.

Workspaces create natural boundaries within your application’s namespace sets. By defining workspaces, you can easily specify zero trust requirements for a specific set of services. This feature eliminates the need to manually configure numerous authorization policies for each service, streamlining the process and reducing the risk of errors.
