Let’s face it, you’re a busy person. You have an abundance of tasks on a day to day basis. It’s hard to be all places at all times keeping track of every move being made and every download being done. As a business, you’re under a ton of pressure to deliver services, and FAST—but it can take weeks or even months to administer a new environment.

These approaches have given way to a more modular architecture, commonly referred to as “micro services.” Despite the name, some of these services aren’t actually micro at all. Isolating an app’s services into interoperable containers has revolutionized the way developers are able to update, add to, or expand parts of an app. While micro services have freed us from many of the constraints of the monolith, these benefits come with increased complexity, vulnerabilities, and risks that need to be mitigated with a tailored security strategy. It’s important to adhere to the same security standards while designing your MuleSoft integrations.
