Tigera | November 07, 2023
Tigera, a provider of an active security platform for containers and Kubernetes, has announced significant upgrades to its Calico Open Source and Calico Cloud. These improvements focus on enhancing the security, scalability, and performance of Kubernetes deployments for enterprises, providing a comprehensive solution for containerized environments.
Given the increased utilization of Windows containers in production, Tigera has introduced the Calico Open Source Windows HostProcess Container feature. It streamlines node pool deployment, eliminating the need for manual node initialization and enhancing Kubernetes administrators' ability to manage Windows container-based applications efficiently. Calico Cloud now introduces a Security Score and Recommended Actions feature, addressing the paramount importance of security in Kubernetes clusters. This feature offers administrators an at-a-glance view of their organization's security posture by monitoring historical trends and risks by namespace. Moreover, it provides actionable recommendations tailored to each workload, fortifying the security of individual workloads and the entire cluster.
It supports IPv6 for the eBPF dataplane, meeting the demands of enterprise-class applications by providing scalable, high-performance networking. This innovation ensures optimal performance for latency-sensitive applications and addresses IP shortages. Multi-cluster Kubernetes deployments over VxLAN are on the rise, requiring enhanced application layer observability and security. Calico introduces Kubernetes Cluster Mesh for VxLAN, offering a scalable solution for workload communication and security policy enforcement across Kubernetes clusters. This simplifies complex multi-cluster environments and ensures enterprise infrastructure can run efficiently, securely, and compliantly.
These Calico enhancements redefine container networking and security, enabling enterprises to secure, scale, and optimize their Kubernetes clusters with unparalleled confidence. Tigera's Chief Product Officer, Amit Gupta, emphasized the importance of these updates, stating that Calico provides the industry's most complete solution for securing and observing Kubernetes environments.
Tigera provides the industry's sole active security platform, complemented by comprehensive observability capabilities tailored for containers and Kubernetes. The company's platform operates on a multifaceted front, effectively thwarting, identifying, troubleshooting, and autonomously mitigating potential security breach risks. It offers its platform through two distinct avenues: a fully managed SaaS solution, Calico Cloud, or a self-managed service, Calico Enterprise. Its open-source offering, Calico Open Source, is the most widely adopted solution for container networking and security, shaping the landscape of secure container environments.

Data Theorem, Inc., a leading provider of modern application security, today introduced an industry-first attack path analysis of APIs and software supply chain exploits to its Cloud-Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) called Cloud Secure. The new release includes machine learning (ML)-based hacker toolkits and improved visualizations that boost discovery of potential data breaches in first-party APIs and third-party software supply chain assets hosted in multi-cloud environments.
As a result of today’s launch, organizations can now leverage an advanced ML-based CNAPP solution to best secure their cloud-native apps and discover weaknesses which could lead to data breaches. Previously, organizations had to rely on cloud security posture management (CSPM) and agent-based cloud workload protection platforms (CWPP) that lack the ability to accurately detect attack surfaces such as first- and third-party APIs that lead to the critical path hackers utilize to successfully exploit vulnerabilities and extract sensitive data.
Data Theorem’s new release of Cloud Secure now delivers Cloud Hacker Toolkits powered by a new set of visualization features and ML enhancements for exploit prioritization, helping organizations focus on the most critical vulnerabilities that hackers can take advantage of for a cyberattack to extract data from cloud-native apps. In addition, Cloud Secure now offers ML-powered optimized Cloud Assets inventory with new visualizations for organizations to better understand the relationships between applications (mobile and web), APIs (first and third party), and the myriad of cloud resources. As a result, organizations for the first time can have an accurate inventory of their cloud-native and cloud-hosted applications, and visualize the growing attack surfaces including APIs they develop themselves and APIs that come from leveraging open-source software, third-party software development kits (SDKs), and public cloud services within their software supply chains.
As we have seen, machine learning, and particularly generative language learning model (LLM), offers a new set of innovations and creativity for both security practitioners and attackers, said Doug Dooley, Data Theorem COO. Data Theorem is pleased to offer the industry’s first CNAPP solution which leverages some of the more useful elements of machine learning combined with run-time analysis, observability, and active protection. Cloud Secure continues to lead the industry as the most application-centric CNAPP offering helping organizations uncover new attack vectors in cloud-native applications and APIs that ultimately prevent large-scale data breaches. ML-powered Hacker Tool Kits and Optimized Cloud Assets, in addition to Cloud Secure’s other advancements in this new release, uniquely protect organizations’ cloud applications in multi-cloud environments.
Cloud Secure now also offers a new UI design that improves the end-to-end CNAPP workflow for organizations with new dashboard, inventory, security testing, and cloud-native protection sections. For example, the Cloud-Native Protection visualization graph with Cloud Abuse highlights priority events, actors, and attack path analysis that uniquely helps organizations diagnose near real-time data breaches and attempts at exfiltration attacks. In addition, Cloud Secure’s Enhanced Compliance Summary section with status and on-demand reporting downloads automates the audit processes to help organizations prove compliance.
Cloud Secure, powered by Data Theorem’s award-winning Analyzer Engine, helps organizations secure their cloud-native applications and address regulatory compliance for cloud monitoring and reporting. It is the industry’s first solution delivering full-stack attack path analysis for cloud-native applications that starts at the client layer (mobile and web), protects the network layer (APIs), and extends down through the underlying infrastructure (cloud services). Its combination of attack path analysis and run-time active protections enables both offensive and defensive security capabilities to best prevent data breaches of cloud-native applications, embedded APIs, and serverless cloud functions.
Data Theorem’s broad AppSec portfolio protects organizations from data breaches with application security testing and protection for modern web frameworks, API-driven microservices and cloud resources. Its solutions are powered by its award-winning Analyzer Engine which leverages a new type of dynamic and runtime analysis that is fully integrated into the CI/CD process, and enables organizations to conduct continuous, automated security inspection and remediation. Data Theorem is one of the first vendors to provide a full stack application security analyzer that connects attack surfaces of applications starting at the client layers found in mobile and web, the network layers found in APIs, and the infrastructure layers found in cloud services.
