The realities of today’s hybrid workforce introduce new remote access challenges for organizations. With the ubiquity of the cloud, data accessed and stored outside corporate offices, as well as users located everywhere, organizations are increasingly moving to a secure access service edge (SASE) model to connect and secure users to the applications, data and services they need.

Forrester New Wave Leader 2021, Zero Trust Network Access

At Palo Alto Networks, our approach to SASE starts with the convergence of best-of-breed networking and security into a purpose-built platform that combines native digital experience management. Cloud-delivered services connect and secure all apps used by your hybrid workforce, regardless of whether users are remote, mobile or working from a branch office, all while ensuring the best possible experience for enhanced employee productivity.

The cornerstone to any SASE solution is ensuring consistent security protections can be applied everywhere users and applications now reside. The identity-based authentication and granular access control capabilities of Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) are essential components to securing today’s hybrid workforces. ZTNA offers organizations scalable remote access, consistent identity-based access control and continuous trust assessment wherever data or users are.

That’s why we’re excited to announce that Palo Alto Networks Prisma Access has been recognized as a leader in the inaugural report, The Forrester New Wave™: Zero Trust Network Access, Q3 2021. We believe the position as a leader of Palo Alto Networks reflects our strong commitment to customer security by delivering industry leading innovation.

The Forrester New Wave evaluates ZTNA vendor offerings across a range of criteria.
