Cloud infrastructures force organizations to re-architect how they do security. Traditionally, security is part of the network (e.g., firewalls, web application firewalls, intrusion prevention systems), and any cloud comes with its own built-in security. The customer´s security has to go into the one thing they own — the app.

tCell enables customers to deploy self-defending apps – giving organizations application visibility and protection, with a simple deployment that embraces DevOps and is completely agnostic to infrastructure — whether it be virtualized, public/private cloud, containers, or anything else.

tCell moves application security out of the network for cloud-first organizations. Using in-application instrumentation and cloud-based analytics, tCell secures production applications, enabling organizations to assess, monitor, and defend their application — without code or network changes. Whether an organizations´ applications are on-premises or cloud-based, tCell´s unique approach makes application security easy.
