Our story: From Project Calico to Calico Cloud
Tigera’s story begins 6 years ago with Project Calico, an open-source networking and security project with an active development and user community. Calico Open Source was born out of this project and has grown to be the most widely adopted solution for networking and security for containers and Kubernetes, powering 2M+ nodes daily across 166 countries.
As adoption of containers and Kubernetes grew and organizations started using Kubernetes at scale, they began to encounter more advanced requirements for observability and security. Tigera responded to this need by building upon Calico Open Source to create the industry’s only active Cloud-Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) with full-stack observability, available as a fully managed SaaS (Calico Cloud) or a self-managed service (Calico Enterprise).
Tigera was founded by the original Project Calico engineering team. We are committed to maintaining Calico Open Source as the leading standard for container and Kuberentes networking and security, while also offering Kubernetes-native, full-stack security and observability capabilities to commercial users looking for a pay-as-you-go, managed cloud service or a self-managed, on-premises platform.
