In the dynamic landscape of network security, organizations grapple with the challenge of fortifying their digital infrastructure while staying ahead of the innovations. The synergy between NTT's Managed Networks and Palo Alto Networks' Prisma SASE results in a solution that enhances security and integrates cutting-edge advancements delivered as a comprehensive managed service.

SASE with NTT DATA: Strengthening Security Posture

A growing modern hybrid workforce and diverse branch locations expand the enterprise attack surface, requiring the implementation of sophisticated security measures.

SASE seamlessly integrates software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN), Zero Trust network access (ZTNA), and application security features into a single cloud-delivered service, reducing the burden on IT teams to manage multiple solutions and ultimately limiting gaps in security posture. Working with a global system integrator (GSI) like NTT DATA helps enterprises assess their security posture and implement a fully managed Prisma SASE solution.

Key Benefits of Prisma SASE

Combining networking and security as a service into a single cloud-delivered service can make management much simpler and reduce complexity. Prisma SASE offers several significant benefits, including:

1. Anywhere access enables secure connectivity from any location, making remote work more efficient.

2. Branch office connectivity replaces MPLS connections with SD-WAN, thereby reducing costs and improving branch office agility.

3. Zero Trust security enhances your alignment with Zero Trust principles, providing identity-centric access and robust security policies.

4. Data protection enables easy integration into security services such as data loss prevention and content inspection.

5. Internet-bound traffic management simplifies IT and security operations, ensuring consistent protection for all traffic.

Managed Services Elevate SASE Implementation
