Service networking to discover and securely connect all your services

HashiCorp Consul provides organizations with identity-based service networking for service discovery, secure communication, and network automation across multiple cloud and runtime environments.


Consul provides a dynamic service directory for multi-cloud, Kubernetes, VMs, and on-premises environments to enable service registration, discovery, and monitoring.


Consul's service mesh ensures secure and authorized service-to-service communication, offering encryption, observability, and resilience for application traffic.


Consul automates complex networking tasks like load balancers, firewalls, gateways, VPNs, and more to streamline application deployment and Day 2 operations.


Consul enables scalable service networking solutions for organizations dealing with challenges of networking across multiple datacenters while ensuring global visibility and control.

  • From securing the perimeter to authenticating identity

    With the shift to cloud and hybrid infrastructure, companies no longer manage static IT estates with clear perimeters. Instead, networks and IPs can’t be trusted, and each application and user could pose a threat. That’s why organizations are adopting identity-based security architectures built on the foundation of zero trust. With Consul, organizations reduce risk with:

    • Identity-based access for uniform service networking policies 

    • Encrypted and authorized service-to-service communication

    • Centralized and granular access control

    • Consistent security across multiple clouds and runtime environments

  • Build your identity-based security toolkit

    HashiCorp’s suite of products for security and networking help organizations adopt best practices for zero trust security: 

    • Manage secrets and sensitive data with Vault

    • Manage secure remote user access with Boundary

    • Discover and securely connect services with Consul

Extend Consul across your IT environment

Consul provides a single control plane to enable a broad ecosystem for service networking.
