Calico provides visibility and zero-trust security controls for eHealth on Amazon EKS

Calico makes it extremely easy to author, review, and enforce custom security policy. This is helpful as it allows us to have full control over the communications between microservices in our environment.

eHealth is an online health insurance marketplace offering information for user-friendly comparison and research of private plans. The healthcare industry is tightly regulated, making in-depth understanding of eHealth’s risk profile essential for the organization’s compliance.

As eHealth grew and began using containers and Kubernetes on Amazon EKS, eHealth encountered three significant challenges with its previous security tool in the EKS environment: poor visibility, lack of security controls, and limited ROI.

Read the case study to learn how Calico solved these problems for eHealth and delivered a strong security posture out of the box.
