containers and Kubernetes

Plug-and-play security platform that actively prevents, detects, and mitigates breaches

Why Tigera?

Containers and Kubernetes demand a prevention-centric security approach

Reduce attack surface

We scan each image to ensure that workloads have the fewest possible vulnerabilities. We layer on configuration security with KSPM, egress controls, and microsegmentation. Finally, we protect workloads at runtime with workload-based IDS/IPS, WAF, and malware detection using process hash.

Detect container and network-based attacks

We provide out-of-the-box eBPF-based detectors to detect any container or network-based attack. Our plug-and-play detectors do the heavy lifting so security teams can spend more time on preventing and detecting attacks.

Mitigate the risk of exposure

Our defense-in-depth approach assumes breach and provides mitigating controls to prevent breaches from turning into disasters. Through contextual alerts, policy recommendations, and rapid policy deployment, you can neutralize threats upon discovery.
