It helps organisations securely connect applications in any environment using service identities and traditional networking practices.

Service networking challenges

To connect, secure, automate, and access services in any environment, we must answer these four questions: Where are my services? How do I ensure their communication? How do I automate networking tasks? How do I control access to my environments?

Secure Networking

Consul ensures that only authorised and trusted services can communicate with each other and encrypts their communication.

Automate Networking

Consul automates key networking tasks to reduce the operator workload.

Access Services
