Presented by

Vinay Venkataraghavan - Senior Solution Architect, Technical Business Development

About this talk

In some organizations, the theme of “can’t we all just get along” accurately describes the relationship between DevOps and network security. DevOps operates at a rapid and dynamic pace, leveraging the cloud to create and deploy; security teams exercise industry best practices of policy change control to eliminate potential security holes. Inevitably, deployment challenges arise. The ideal solution is one where security becomes part of the DevOps fabric. In this session our Cloud Automation Experts will discuss and demonstrate how customers can automate the deployment of the deployment of VM-Series next generation firewall to protect DevOps environments on AWS and Azure. Based on current customer examples, the topics covered in this session will include: • “Touchless” deployment of a fully configured firewall utilizing a combination of native and 3rd party automation tools such as Terraform and Ansible • Consuming Tags to execute commit-less policy updates The session will wrap up with a discussion of sample templates and scripts to get started and a video demonstration of a fully automated VM-Series deployment.
