Extend network firewalls to Kubernetes with Calico’s universal firewall integration

Most organizations that move to microservices and Kubernetes based applications still operate in a hybrid environment where legacy applications still reside on-prem or in cloud. These applications rely on perimeter-based NGFW such as Fortinet’s FortiGate with appropriate rules to govern traffic flows. Calico can integrate Kubernetes environments with these firewalls to enable similar workflows and security zones so that operators can use the firewalls in a Kubernetes environment. In this webinar, we will discuss the following:

  • How to map firewall rules to Calico security policies for Kubernetes 
  • Use firewalls to control egress access from Kubernetes pods without constantly updating IP addresses
  • Eliminate the need to open up large CIDR ranges to allow traffic to and from Kubernetes clusters
  • Working demo of the Fortinet-Calico integration
