Generative AI's acceleration of software delivery is straining current approaches to cloud security, making scaling nearly impossible because, as Gartner points out, organizations don’t have the skilled resources to take it all on. For those counting on AI to drive innovation, this is a problem. How do you keep safe? Here’s where Palo Alto Networks Precision AITM comes in — a proprietary AI system that helps power Prisma Cloud Copilot.

A Simple, Intuitive Way to Reduce Cloud Security Risk

A seamless component of the Code to CloudTM platform, Prisma Cloud Copilot empowers users to resolve cloud risk as easily as asking a question.

  • Want to know what your top risks are? Copilot can tell you.
  • Need to find out where your sensitive data is secure and who has access to it? Copilot has that answer.
  • Not sure what to ask? That’s OK too. Copilot is contextually aware and can suggest questions and actions based on where you are in the Prisma Cloud platform.

Identify Complex Attack Paths, Understand the Broader Impact

Copilot leverages the advanced algorithms in Prisma Cloud to continuously analyze your cloud stack, precisely connecting insights from across your environment to identify the vulnerabilities and misconfigurations that pose the greatest business risk. It details the code to cloud impact and provides additional context, such as why the risk is critical and how an attacker could exploit it.

Copilot also discovers the broader blast radius so you can understand the impact to your crown jewels. It graphs models the possible pathways an attacker could take from the initial asset so you can easily understand how extensively a risk could spread. By combining path exploitability and crown jewel significance, the overall risk impact is precisely calculated.

With both risk reachability and impact context, Copilot can then recommend the best remediation workflow, whether to open a pull request, to a corrected IaC template or to create a ticket.

Replace Query Building with Natural Language Questions

With Prisma Cloud Copilot, you’ll never have to go through the arduous task of building a custom query to analyze specific cloud risks. The system understands natural language, so whether you're looking for insights into specific resources or a broader view into your security posture, you can simply ask Copilot.
