Tigera launches enhancements to Calico Cloud to improve security

Tigera, the creator of Project Calico, the most adopted technology for container networking and security, today announced new features for Calico Cloud. These enhancements bolster the security posture of containerized applications.

Due to the transient, elastic and distributed nature of containerized applications running in Kubernetes clusters, most security teams do not have a comprehensive view of security risks. Comprehensive risk assessment requires visibility into vulnerabilities, misconfigurations and network exposure.

Calico Cloud has elevated its capabilities to address this, providing Security Score and Recommended Actions for cloud-native applications. This feature gives administrators and security teams the most comprehensive, quantified view of their application’s overall security posture, leveraging risks associated with vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, lack of egress access and application isolation controls, including preceding trends and context, to help understand how the security score is behaving over time.

Calico Cloud’s security posture dashboard is equipped to assess risks and calculate a security score for an organization’s workloads by quantifying and aggregating different types of risks. Calico Cloud goes beyond risk assessment, prioritizes actions that need to be taken and simultaneously recommends actions to improve the security posture. These latest enhancements will help proactively bolster the security posture of the cluster, significantly shorten remediation timelines, and alleviate the volume of manual resources required when securing such environments.
