CN-Series firewalls deliver all of the capabilities of our PA-Series and VM-Series firewalls, in a container form factor. You can deploy our cloud-delivered security services on top of the CN-Series firewalls, as well, just like our other firewall form factors. This gives you the ability to deploy layer 7 network security and threat protection in your Kubernetes clusters for advanced protection and compliance.

CN-Series has been deeply integrated with Kubernetes for complete visibility and context, and to ensure that the firewall is automatable and scalable to accommodate DevOps workflows. This session will explain the key functionality, use cases and benefits of CN-Series.
