Not all threats originate from outside an organization. According to Gartner, nearly 75% of breaches are the result of insider behavior, people within the organization such as employees, former employees, contractors, or business associates who have inside information concerning the organization’s security practices, data, and computer systems. This level of exposure is unacceptable for organizations that have strict data protection and regulatory compliance requirements. Calico data-in-transit encryption provides category-leading performance and lower CPU utilization than legacy approaches like IPsec and OpenVPN tunneling protocols. No matter where a threat originates, data encrypted by Calico is unreadable to anyone except the legitimate keyholder, thus protecting sensitive data should a perimeter breach occur.
Enables compliance with corporate and regulatory data protection requirements that specify the use of encryption, including SOX, HIPAA, GDPR, and PCI.
Delivers better performance and lower CPU utilization than IPsec and OpenVPN tunneling protocols. Calico with encryption enabled is 6x faster than any other solution on the market.
Encryption is a foundational element for environments that must meet regulatory compliance requirements for data privacy and protection. Calico encryption combines superior performance and reduced CPU utilization with operational simplicity.
