Today’s enterprises continue to move to the cloud to power innovation and scale their businesses to heights never before thought possible. With this shift and rise in adoption of cloud services and cloud native architectures also comes risks and business challenges.
Security teams need to ensure that cloud environments are configured properly as any misconfiguration could leak data or provide a target for attackers. These teams also need to work with compliance and audit teams to achieve and maintain compliance, which is a challenge in highly dynamic cloud environments. Additionally, cloud environments and cloud native applications need to be protected, both at runtime and across the application lifecycle to address vulnerabilities and misconfigurations.
Palo Alto Networks commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Prisma Cloud. Forrester interviewed five customers with experience using Prisma Cloud to understand the benefits and value of their investment and use of our Cloud-Native Security Platform.
These customers shared that prior solutions “yielded limited success, leaving customers with little to no cloud security posture visibility, siloed developer and security processes and teams, and poor compliance and reporting.” With Prisma Cloud, the Forrester TEI study showed customers were able to dramatically change how they secured their cloud environments and cloud native applications.
By deploying Prisma Cloud, organizations were able to improve security outcomes, improve the ability to fix vulnerabilities and reduce time spent on managing compliance while lowering the likelihood of material data breaches. Overall, this led to 276% ROI over three years with $5.81M in net present value (NPV).
