Wallarm can protect North-South API in the applications that use Envoy as an alternative Ingress controller at the front end of a Kubernetes cluster. Wallarm can also protect edge traffic and also East-West Envoy API for Service-Mesh and Istio.
Andrew Jenkins of Aspen Mesh identifies three deployment options with regards to how a Service Mesh delivers its services:
- As a sidecar that runs alongside your microservice container
- As a library that can be built into each of the microservices
- As an agent that sit in the container infrastructure and provide the service to all the containers on that node
