Tigera is a Fortinet Fabric-Ready technology partner. With this partnership, Fortinet customers can extend their existing network security architecture to their containers and Kubernetes environments.



Fortinet and Tigera have partnered to deliver active security solution for containers and Kubernetes. As Kubernetes adoption in enterprises accelerates, organizations want to extend their existing perimeter based security architecture into the containerized workloads and Kubernetes environment. Instead of maintaining two disparate security platforms that introduces additional complexity and manual processes, Tigera and Fortinet provide Fortimanager and Fortigate better visibility into east-west traffic for workload-level security.


Calico allows you to maintain the same workload access controls in place by using the IP address of the microservices at a particular moment in time. These IPs are pushed to the FortiGate devices, which are then updated to ensure that the firewall rules stay valid
