Palo Alto NetworksWith the acceleration of digital initiatives, cloud adoption, and workforce mobility, the business environment has changed dramatically. Users, applications, data, and workloads are now everywhere. These changes make the traditional hardware-based approach of enabling access and backhauling traffic to one single data center location obsolete as it can no longer meet the fast-changing business needs of today’s digital world.

To optimize business continuity and address evolving security challenges, organizations need to transform their networking and security architecture with a converged, cloud-based approach. This will enable secure access and optimal connectivity for all users, devices, and applications to effectively support hybrid work requirements and cloud migration strategies. These capabilities can be found in a Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) architecture, a disruption of the status quo in the networking and security industry.

SASE helps organizations transform their networking and security architecture and reduce or eliminate their dependence on traditional WAN and appliance-based security solutions, enabling a lower total cost of ownership (TCO), better performance, and improved user experience.

Palo Alto Networks is a leading US-based cybersecurity company that is known for its comprehensive security portfolio comprising a flagship next-generation firewall (NGFW), cloud-native security platform, extended detection and response (XDR), security operation platform (SOAR), and its Prisma SASE solutions. Its security solutions provide holistic protection across clouds, networks, endpoints, and Internet of Things devices.

Palo Alto Networks’ Prisma SASE is one of the market’s few cloud-delivered SASE solutions that can help customers digitalize their business securely with a cloud-first approach and address specific use cases related to legacy systems. Unlike other network security competitors that are redesigning existing hardware security solutions to adapt to a SASE architecture and then offering it with disjointed solutions, Palo Alto Networks has built Prisma SASE with a cloud-delivered vision that capitalizes on its strong cloud-delivered security services.

Prima SASE combines the company’s comprehensive security capabilities with next-generation SD-WAN and digital experience management (DEM). With natively integrated SD-WAN and networking and security capabilities, user and application access is secure no matter where they are located. Prisma SASE consolidates multiple point products, including zero trust network access (ZTNA) 2.0, cloud SWG, next-generation cloud access security broker (NG CASB), FWaaS, SD-WAN, and autonomous digital experience management (ADEM), into a single integrated cloud solution to reduce network and security complexity while increasing organizational agility. This integrated, cloud-delivered platform enables companies to address operation challenges to networking and security services by offering simple management and consistent policies across security services.

With organizations putting more attention to user experience and ROI, these efforts will give the company even greater traction with large organizations globally. In short, Palo Alto Networks offers a robust SASE platform that combines networking and security capabilities to improve organizational agility while mitigating network and security complexity. The comprehensiveness of Palo Alto Networks’ cloud-delivered security services and native SD-WAN solution integration makes the company stand out among SASE competitors. With its comprehensive, integrated, cloud-delivered SASE solution, organizations can improve agility and increase security protection for users, applications, and data without sacrificing security effectiveness and network functionality or creating maintenance issues when working in hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
