Get More Packet Egress/Ingress Options with AWS Overlay Routing

Now you can allow packets in your AWS environment to enter the VM-Series firewall through one interface  – and exit through another. Overlay routing flexibility with VM-Series and AWS Gateway Load Balancer (GWLB) integration lets you use a two-zone policy to inspect traffic arriving and leaving through different interfaces. Find each step of the straightforward process here.


Find Expanded CN-Series Support

The industry’s first container NGFW keeps expanding its capabilities that are vital for securing containers. And that’s critical in light of news that Kubernetes is deprecating Docker as a container runtime after v1.20. The CN-Series Kubernetes 1.19 version qualification covers managed K8s services such as AKS (which defaults to containerD), EKS, GKE, Openshift, and self-managed K8s clusters. Plus, new topology enhancements can be found in the Openshift 4.6 qualification for existing automation and support of full end-to-end deployments.

The Azure Plugin 3.0.1 MR resolves issues such as regional deployment errors, load-balancing concerns, and deployment challenges.
