Tigera recently announced active cloud-native application protection with Calico Cloud. Utpal Bhatt, Chief Marketing Officer at Tigera, explains how it works and why it’s needed. “We believe you need an active cloud protection platform, which not only detects vulnerabilities and threats, but it actively reduces the attack surface. So you’re limiting different ways in which you can get attacked with the Zero Trust principle,” says Bhatt.
