Tigera: Identity-aware Microsegmentation for Containers, Kubernetes and Cloud
Cloud adoption is at an all-time high, and Calico’s cloud-native architecture takes full advantage of the distributed, scalable, flexible nature of the public cloud, abstracting away many layers of infrastructure – networks, servers, and operating systems – and enabling them to be defined in code.
Current application deployments generate a significantly greater percentage of east-west traffic than in the past. This shift has created a larger attack surface area and greater potential for free lateral movement within these application infrastructures. Calico’s common segmentation model and unified policy framework works across all environments, including any combination of cloud and hybrid providers, cloud instances, Kubernetes distributions, and containers.
Using Calico’s identity-aware microsegmentation, system administrators can create policies that limit network traffic between workloads based on a zero trust approach.
