Why you should join Anjuna

Anjuna creates a software perimeter around applications that provides hardware-grade security for the applications, completely removing the need to secure or patch the host, VM, or container. This is ideal for running applications in environments where there is no control over the host, like the public cloud, or when running alongside untrusted applications. We use novel technologies such as Intel SGX to make it happen.
