Throw Away Your Firewalls and Make Your Applications More Secure - Casey Davenport, Project Calico

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Count the number of data breaches in 2015 and it's clear that enterprise security is splitting at the seams. The old model of trying to secure large applications using firewall appliances between each application “tier” just isn't working. As we move into the cloud-native era and break applications into smaller more easily understandable micro-services, there is a huge opportunity to revolutionize security by rendering developer intent directly into the network fabric to create networks that are more secure and more dynamic than ever before. Casey will discuss how evolving micro-services architectures allow you to throw away your traditional firewalls, and transition data center networks from statically configured, application-specific monoliths to highly dynamic, scalable, and secure systems.
