Cilium vs Tinfoil Security: What are the differences?
What is Cilium? API-aware networking and security for containers. Open source software for providing and transparently securing network connectivity and loadbalancing between application workloads such as application containers or processes.
What is Tinfoil Security? Routine scans of your website’s security health and vulnerabilities. Our automated scan checks for vulnerabilities in every nook and cranny of your website. Using the same techniques as malicious hackers, we systematically test all the access points, giving you step-by-step instructions on how to eliminate any threat.
Cilium and Tinfoil Security can be categorized as "Security" tools.
Some of the features offered by Cilium are:
- Identity Based Security - Cilium visibility and security policies are based on the container orchestrator identity (e.g., Kubernetes labels). Never again worry about network subnets or container IP addresses when writing security policies, auditing, or troubleshooting.
- Blazing Performance - BPF is the underlying Linux superpower to do the heavy lifting on the datapath by providing sandboxed programmability of the Linux kernel with incredible performance.
- API-Protocol Visibility + Security - Traditional firewalls only see and filter packets based on network headers like IP address and ports. Cilium can do this as well, but also understands and filters the individual HTTP, gRPC, and Kafka requests that stitch microservices together.
On the other hand, Tinfoil Security provides the following key features:
- Actionable Results
- Recurring Scans
- Digestible Data
