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, using 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, Ivan Bojer, automation specialist, and Jaime Franklin, cloud architect, both of Palo Alto Networks, discuss and demonstrate how AWS customers can automate the deployment of the VM-Series next generation firewall to protect DevOps environments on AWS. The topics in this session are based on current customer examples. They include: “touchless” deployment of a fully configured firewall utilizing automation tools, such as AWS CloudFormation templates, Terraform, and Ansible; consuming AWS tags to execute commitless policy updates; using Amazon CloudWatch and Elastic Load Balancing to deliver scalability and resiliency. This session wraps up with a discussion of sample templates and scripts to get started and a video demonstration of a fully automated VM-Series deployment.
