We recently announced that Palo Alto Networks, Orange Business and Orange Cyberdefense are partnering to deliver a cloud-native managed Security Access Service Edge (SASE) solution to global enterprises. As organizations accelerate cloud adoption to accommodate hybrid work and deliver new products and services to their customers, their digital attack surface has expanded dramatically. Enterprises are looking to deploy complete SASE solutions including SD-WAN and Zero Trust security, which is where our new partnership with Orange can play a significant role.

Together, Palo Alto Networks, Orange Business and Orange Cyberdefense deliver a comprehensive managed SASE solution that can secure our joint customers in today’s digital era. By combining the Palo Alto Networks Prisma SASE solution (which includes Prisma SD-WAN and Prisma Access) with the services and management capabilities of Orange into a single platform, we are helping organisations in their transition to hybrid work, cloud and Zero Trust. We are providing an industry-leading security and SD-WAN solution that delivers consistent Zero Trust Security for the home user and the branch user, and delivers exceptional end-user performance. Users can easily and securely access applications and data while network and security admins have a delightful operational experience.

The new partnership provides the industry’s most complete AI-Powered SASE solution, advisory and consultant services, as well as global managed network, security and digital services. Organizations using this offering can maximize the return of investment (ROI) from their SASE transformation.

Ultimately, this managed SASE offering enables organizations to fully embrace the promise and power of cloud-based environments, surpassing any security or performance limitations:

  • Empowering users, wherever they are working from, with Zero Trust access. With an identity-based approach to security policies and controls, user access and data is always protected.
  • Enabling scalable connectivity designed for data centers and multicloud, with a software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) that removes complexity and cost, while extending across any underlay, so you can use the network topology that makes the most sense based on application and workflow.
  • Automating complex operations with AI Operations (AIOps) natively integrated into SASE with Autonomous Digital Experience Management (ADEM). Leveraging AI-based problem detection and predictive analytics to automate complex, manual IT operations, increase productivity, and reduce mean time to resolution (MTTR).
