[FTW012] Calico and Fortinet: The Best of Breed for Kubernetes Networking & Network Security

Kubernetes, an open source container management system, has surged in popularity in the past several years and has been adopted by the largest enterprises in a wide range of industries. As organisations are increasingly deploying Kubernetes clusters in production environments, Kubernetes network security has become of paramount importance. Calico is an open source networking and network security solution for a broad range of platforms including Kubernetes, OpenShift, and Docker EE. It is trusted and running in production at large enterprises including SaaS providers, financial services companies, and manufacturers. The largest public cloud providers have selected Calico to provide network security for their hosted Kubernetes services (Amazon EKS, Azure AKS, Google GKE, and IBM IKS) running across tens of thousands of clusters. The Tigera (the company behind project Calico) and Fortinet joint solution extends firewalls to Kubernetes clusters. It will enable customers to enforce network security policies for traffic into and out of the Kubernetes cluster (North/South traffic) as well as traffic between pods within the cluster (East/West traffic). Attend this hands-on workshop to gain experience with basic and advanced networking and network security for Kubernetes. Additionally, you will gain hands-on experience deploying FortiManager and Calico Enterprise to protect Kubernetes clusters.
