We are excited to announce a new capability – Istio awareness. 

Istio allows organizations to secure, connect and monitor traffic to your microservices. Starting today, Upwind will identify Istio sidecars and proxies and use this information as context for our threat detection and risk prioritization engine. Upwind can now understand entire network flows, all the way from the endpoint (source) through virtual network devices such as Load Balancers, Istio Proxies and more. 

Understanding what resources do and how they behave helps to secure them and spot threats early, providing pivotal insights for forensic analysis to trace network flows and pinpoint vulnerabilities.
