Palo Alto Networks Delivers the Industry’s Most Comprehensive Secure Access Service Edge

We’re pleased to announce new cloud-delivered software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) and data loss prevention (DLP) capabilities in Prisma™ Access, the industry’s most comprehensive secure access service edge (SASE) platform.

As a complete SASE solution, Prisma Access delivers end-to-end networking and security services from a globally distributed cloud platform.

Watch founder and CTO Nir Zuk and chief product officer Lee Klarich at the Ignite Europe conference on Nov. 13 in Barcelona. They explain why organizations employ so many cybersecurity vendors today, how stepping back to find the right solution to the right problem can help, and how Prisma Access is the industry's most comprehensive SASE platform.

With the introduction of new SD-WAN features and a DLP service, Palo Alto Networks is both enhancing the Prisma Access platform and extending its industry-leading SASE capabilities:

    • New Prisma Access SD-WAN service: Traditional approaches to SD-WAN expose organizations to security risks, deliver unreliable end-to-end performance and increase network complexity. With this release, Palo Alto Networks is delivering a simple, reliable and secure end-to-end SD-WAN infrastructure, with Prisma Access operating as the cloud-based SD-WAN hub and next-generation firewalls operating as the SD-WAN appliances in the branch. 
    • New cloud-based management user interface: Existing Palo Alto Networks customers have enjoyed the ability to manage Prisma Access from their familiar Panorama™ management console, which enables consistent security policy to be applied across physical and virtual firewalls, as well as the cloud. For customers born in the cloud, Palo Alto Networks is introducing a reimagined workflow-based interface, delivered as a service from the cloud, to simplify the process of configuring and managing SASE.
    • New SaaS service-level agreements: As organizations adopt cloud-based services, service-level agreements are essential in defining a service provider’s commitment to critical areas like performance, availability, security and more. Prisma Access is the only cloud-delivered SASE offering that guarantees the performance of SaaS application access, extending the existing uptime and security processing performance SLAs. 
  • New advanced DLP service: Ensuring comprehensive data protection and governance is an essential capability of any SASE solution. The new advanced DLP service for Prisma Access helps mitigate the risk of data exfiltration and non-compliance by discovering, monitoring and protecting sensitive data. The new DLP engine will initially support Prisma Access and Prisma SaaS to detect data in motion over the network and at rest in public cloud storage locations. The service will become available across all Palo Alto Networks products in the future, enabling consistent data protection across the enterprise.
