Cloudera and Docker have partnered to develop and offer an integrated platform for government customers to share data through cryptographically secure containers.
Palo Alto, California-based Cloudera said Monday the joint offering will work to protect code and data in containerized workloads while in transit, at rest and at runtime.
The platform is based on Cloudera’s Navigator Encrypt data encryption tool that runs on Docker’s Commercially Supported Docker Engines.
Navigator Encrypt works to transparently encrypt and secure data at rest without imposing changes to applications.
The Cloudera platform has achieved compliance with the Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2, which is used to validate the security of cryptographic modules.
Cloudera said the joint offering is currently available to U.S. government agencies and is designed to work with any operating system and cloud platform.
