Zero-trust security and compliance across your entire network

Linkerd Enterprise provides a complete zero-trust layer of network security and access control built on industry standards such as mutual TLS, the Gateway API, and the memory-safe Rust language. Say goodbye to IP-based access control, perimeter firewalls, and buffer overflow exploits. Say hello to workload identity, end-to-end encryption for all customer data, and ultra-fine-grained security boundaries.


Global traffic management and control

Linkerd Enterprise gives you unparalleled control over all application traffic, including dynamic L7-aware routing; cross-cluster communication; automated failover across clusters, regions, and zones; and cost-optimizing load balancing that can significantly reduce your cloud spend. Linkerd Enterprise delivers a fully distributed, Rust-based dataplane capable of handling everything from HTTP/2 and gRPC traffic down to raw TCP streams while withstanding network partitions, machine outages, failures of clusters, zones, and regions, and anything else you can throw its way.


Full L7 application observability

Linkerd Enterprise provides immediate L7 traffic metrics such as success rates, request latency distributions, and full service topologies, all in a single dashboard designed for enterprise platform owners and operators. No changes to the application are necessary. Move from byte flows between IP addresses to a modern, workload-based view of your complete application topology, even across cluster, zone, and region boundaries.
