What Is Application Dependency Mapping?
Application dependency mapping (ADM) enables you to create a comprehensive map of the entire ecosystem. It helps avoid blind spots that allow mistakes or breaches to occur. ADM solutions can identify and map all instances, applications, and communication channels across the ecosystem, including ports and services.
There are various ADM solutions, including vendor native, open source, and commercial vendor-agnostic tools. A vendor-agnostic solution can quickly and easily identify subnets, VPCs, and security groups on several cloud providers like Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
