About Tigera

Tigera provides Zero Trust network security and continuous compliance for Kubernetes platforms.

Tigera Secure Enterprise Edition extends enterprise security and compliance controls to Kubernetes environments with support for on-premises, multi-cloud, and legacy environments. Tigera Secure Cloud Edition is available on the AWS marketplace and enables fine-grained security and compliance controls for Kubernetes on AWS and Amazon EKS.

Tigera powers all of the major hosted Kubernetes environments including Amazon EKS, Azure AKS, Google GKE, and IBM Container Service. Tigera is also integrated with the major on-premises Kubernetes deployments and is shipped “batteries included” in Docker EE and fully integrated with Red Hat OpenShift.

Tigera Secure builds on leading open source projects Kubernetes, Calico, and Istio, which Tigera engineers maintain and contribute to as active members of the cloud-native community. Our employees are experts in securing Kubernetes, and our technology is deployed in the largest SaaS, financial services, gaming, and retail companies where security and compliance are critical to the business.

Why Join Us

Tigera is on track to be the next greatest enterprise software company. We are funded by top-tier VCs, with an amazing product and brilliant team.

We are in a very exciting, dynamic, bleeding-edge market. Kubernetes is one of the most-popular open source projects in history, and is being evaluated or adopted by every major enterprise on the planet.

Our technology has been OEMed by every major cloud provider for their managed Kubernetes services, as well as integrated into the most-popular commercial distributions like Docker, OpenShift, Mesosphere, and Canonical. Our rapidly growing customer base is all household names that rely on us to secure their revenue-generating applications.

The first step towards this vision of the future is to drive the broadest possible adoption of a truly cloud-native approach to application connectivity, networking, and network security, which we believe dictates an open-source-first strategy, with packaged enterprise solutions built on open source. Hence our initial focus on open source Project Calico, Istio and related open technologies including Kubernetes.
