The Palo Alto Networks Container Native Firewalls (CN-Series) are natively
integrated into kubernetes (k8s) to provide complete L7 visibility, application level
segmentation, DNS Security, and protection from advanced threats for traffic going
across trusted zones in public cloud or data center environments. It enables you to
isolate and protect workloads, application stacks, and services, even as individual
containers scale up, down, or across hosts and consistently apply security policies that
are based on kubernetes labels.
Application deployment in a kubernetes environment is dynamic and the following
teams are often involved in the container life cycle:
Platform (PAAS) Admin
Kubernetes clusters and other infrastructure components in public
cloud and data centers.
—Deploy their individual containerized and other applications in
kubernetes namespaces/projects provided by PAAS admin.
—Provisions security for the entire deployment including
kubernetes clusters and individual containerized applications.
In this dynamic scenario and interplay with multiple teams, security management and
monitoring pose a challenge. The
enables your security
administrator to provision security for the containerized applications across a wide
range of environments including Cloud Provider Managed k8s such as GKE, EKS, AKS,
AliCloud ACK, and Customer Managed k8s such as Openshift, and Native k8s on the public
cloud or on premises data centers. The
constructs and metadata driven policy so that the teams can automate the deployment and
efficiently enforce security policy to consistently protect from known and unknown
