Cloud-enabled organizations require cloud-delivered security

Your organization’s cloud transformation is changing the way that your users access applications and the way that you deliver security protection. You need to enable secure access, protect users and applications, and control data – from anywhere. Multiple point products have been the standard approach, but they add cost and complexity, and leave gaps in your security posture. Now there’s a better way – the secure access service edge (SASE). Palo Alto Networks is paving the way with Prisma Access.

What is SASE

Designed for SASE

Prisma Access delivers the networking and security that organizations need in a purpose-built cloud-delivered infrastructure.

Designed in the cloud

Prisma Access uses a common cloud-based infrastructure that delivers protection from over 100+ locations around the world in 76 countries. Customers manage their own security policies with their own dedicated cloud instances, which provides isolation of traffic for privacy.

Provides multiple security services

Use the security capabilities that you need, including advanced threat prevention, web filtering, sandboxing, DNS security, credential theft prevention, DLP and next-generation firewall policies based on user-to-application and host information profile.

Provides consistent networking and security

Unlike conventional software-defined perimeter or proxy solutions, Prisma Access provides networking for all applications and consistent security that makes sure the same policies are enforced at all times.

Use cases: Build your digital transformation on a SASE framework

Firewall as a Service (FWaaS)

Prisma Access acts as a firewall service that protects branch offices from threats while also providing the security services expected from a next-generation firewall. The full spectrum of security services of FWaaS includes threat prevention, URL filtering, sandboxing and more.

DNS security

Prisma Access delivers a DNS Security solution that provides a combination of predictive analytics, machine learning and automation, to combat threats in DNS traffic. Organizations can block bad domains, predict new malicious domains and stop DNS tunneling.

Threat prevention

Using Prisma Access for threat prevention combines the proven technologies in the Palo Alto Networks platform, together with global sources of threat intelligence and automation to stop previously known or unknown attacks.

Cloud Secure Web Gateway (SWG)

Prisma Access for secure web gateway functionality is designed to maintain visibility into all types of traffic, while stopping evasions that can mask threats. Our web filtering capabilities also drive our credential theft prevention technology, which can stop corporate credentials from being sent to previously unknown sites.

Data Loss Prevention (DLP)

Prisma Access combines integration with DLP controls that are API-driven (through Prisma SaaS) as well as inline (through Prisma Access). These DLP policies allow organizations to categorize data and establish policies that prevent data loss.

Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)

Prisma Access and Prisma SaaS implement security controls that combine inline security API security and contextual controls that determine access to sensitive information. These controls are implemented together in an integrated manner and applied throughout all cloud application policies.
