Tigera, a global provider of Kubernetes security and observability solutions, has announced the introduction of a global partner program to satisfy the rising demand for containers, Kubernetes, and microservices.
Calico Cloud and Calico Enterprise from Tigera provide automated tools for securing, monitoring, and swiftly resolving performance issues and troubleshooting microservices. The partner program would allow managed solutions and services providers to strengthen relationships with their customers, expand their portfolios, and increase margins. Partners would be enabled to build their expertise and ability to offer security and observability solutions for containers, Kubernetes, and microservices deployments.
The program is targeted at solution provider resellers, systems integrators, consultants, and distributors that have expertise in AWS, Azure, GKE, Red Hat Openshift, and Suse Rancher Kubernetes, as well as DevOps, microservices, networking, and security standards.
Tigera will provide partners with sales leads, incentives, technical support, and product education. Partners may also register deals and earn commissions on referral sales as well.
Egress Access Controls
Calico is an open-source project with a vibrant user and developer community. Calico Open Source sprang out of this initiative and is now one of the most frequently used networking and security solutions for Kubernetes, with 1.5 million nodes running on a daily basis in 166 countries.
Calico provides automated tools for delivering an easy-to-understand and action-oriented view of Kubernetes networking, security, and application layer performance hotspots and connection problems. It provides a single pane of glass for deploying a common set of egress access controls, enforcing security policies for compliance, and monitoring and troubleshooting applications across multi-cluster and multi-cloud Kubernetes systems.
“We want to help partners evolve their offerings to capitalize on the growth of containers, Kubernetes, and microservices opportunities in order to grow their business and expand their value to customers,” said Amit Gupta, vice president of business development and product management, Tigera. “Now, we’re formalizing what has been an ad hoc network of partners as we see increasing inbound activity from partners of all types. This builds on our existing relationships with partners in North America and Europe that include AWS, Azure, Fortinet, Red Hat, and Suse Rancher, where we’re already working together on customer engagements.”
