Isovalent was founded by the creators of Cilium

Since its inception, open source has been at the heart of everything we do at Isovalent. Isovalent was founded by the creators and maintainers of Cilium and eBPF




eBPF enables users to dynamically program the kernel for efficient networking, observability, tracing, and security. Many of the engineers involved in the creation of eBPF founded Isovalent.




Isovalent, the creator of Cilium, is committed to growing and maintaining Cilium in collaboration with the cloud native community. Cilium is powered by eBPF and provides a secure and observable connectivity layer.




Hubble is a fully distributed observability and security observability platform for cloud native workloads, created by Isovalent. It is built on top of Cilium and eBPF to enable deep visibility into the communication.




Tetragon, a project created by Isovalent, provides eBPF-based transparent security observability combined with real-time runtime enforcement. The deep visibility is achieved without requiring application changes.
