Beginning a digital transformation to the cloud is like a marathon: You've got to be prepared for the long haul. And like athletic training, it matters who you run with. That's why we're glad to be running with Google Cloud – and to have been named Technology Partner of the Year for 2020.
“We’re proud to recognize Palo Alto Networks as our Technology Partner of the Year,” said Kevin Ichhpurani, corporate vice president, global ecosystem at Google Cloud. “Our partnership with Palo Alto Networks enables organizations to simplify cloud security across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments, and we look forward to continuing our partnership to help customers run their most critical workloads in the cloud, confidently and securely.”
This is the fourth year running in which Palo Alto Networks has been named a Partner of the Year. And while this status is a milestone for the Prisma Cloud team, it reaffirms for our customers that they can rely on us to be among the best possible resources for technical expertise and to be at the forefront of innovations that simplify cloud security. It means we combine the expertise of each company in cloud computing and cybersecurity, focused on making our customer's lives easier.
And we should know. Not only are we a Google Cloud Partner, we're also a Google Cloud customer like many other organizations.
In the world of hybrid and multi-cloud deployments, organizations can no longer "lift and shift" their applications and infrastructure. Likewise, legacy on-premises security controls can't simply extend into these new environments. Prisma for Google Cloud allows enterprises to accelerate their digital transformation marathon by simplifying cloud security with unmatched visibility, features that help streamline security compliance and automated threat detection.
Prisma for Google Cloud secures any Google Cloud workload, like GKE, Cloud Run and Cloud Functions. We also integrate with CI pipelines and Google Cloud security tools such as Security Command Center. Our solution provides full visibility into your Google Cloud assets and helps you meet compliance standards. It allows you to defend containers, hosts, serverless and applications in realtime and integrate security early in the development lifecycle.
Palo Alto Networks is one of the first cybersecurity partners to meet the specialized security solutions requirements for Google Cloud and to demonstrate customer success across key areas including network security with the VM-Series and endpoint security with Cortex XDR.
Our partnership on Prisma Access allows us to deliver secure access for customers to their cloud applications from more locations. And through our partnership on Cortex, we are empowering enterprises with detection, investigation, automation and response capabilities for their security operations.
