Palo Alto Networks recently introduced to the Philippines Prisma, a new cloud security suite designed to help its customers lead a more secure digital life. Prisma builds on the success of Palo Alto Networks cloud security products and delivers new experiences only possible with the Prisma suite. With approximately 9,000 enterprise customers, Prisma has quickly become the largest cloud security business in the world.
“Our approach to cloud security is aimed at delivering the best security while embracing the unique needs of the cloud. We provide customers with complete visibility as well as recommended configurations across their entire cloud environment to ensure a strong security posture from the start and consistently prevent attacks,” said Lee Klarich, chief product officer at Palo Alto Networks. “With Prisma, organizations can securely connect office branches and mobile users to the cloud, confidently embrace the use of SaaS applications, and rapidly develop and deploy cloud applications.” The suite consists of four key components.
Prisma Access secures access to the cloud for branch offices and mobile users anywhere in the world with a scalable, cloud-native architecture, blending enterprise-grade security with a globally scalable network. Running soon on Google Cloud Platform (GCP), the service will extend to more than 100 locations for an even faster and more localized experience.
Prisma Public Cloud provides continuous visibility, security, and compliance monitoring across public multi-cloud deployments. Powered by machine learning, it correlates data and assesses risk across the cloud environment. Customers can further reduce their attack surface early in the development cycle through a “shift left” approach to security. With the ability to detect vulnerabilities and fix improper configurations in customers’ infrastructure-as-code templates, developers can reduce risk without sacrificing agility.
Prisma SaaS is a multi-mode cloud access security broker (CASB) service that safely enables SaaS application adoption. It provides advanced capabilities in risk discovery, adaptive access control, data loss prevention, compliance assurance, data governance, user behavior monitoring, and advanced threat prevention. New integrations will bring improved administration experience across IT-sanctioned and IT-unsanctioned SaaS applications with unified visibility and management.
VM-Series is the virtualized form factor of the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewall that can be deployed in private and public cloud computing environments, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), GCP, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud, Alibaba Cloud, and VMware NSX. The VM-Series is also enhanced through infrastructure-as-code automation for deployment and configuration, which reduces complexity for customers.
Prisma Access, Prisma Public Cloud, Prisma SaaS, and the VM-Series are all available now. For organizations interested in learning more about accelerating their cloud journey with Prisma, please visit www.paloaltonetworks.com/prisma.
