As global economies shift, and we face world-changing events, the focus on our customers becomes stronger. Palo Alto Networks is expanding its partnership with Wipro, a recognized global leader in deploying, managing, and operationalizing network infrastructure. With this expansion, Wipro now enhances their managed services offering by adding Prisma Access to their existing managed SD-WAN offering, Prisma SD-WAN, to deliver managed Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) security services to organizations around the world.

SASE converges software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) and security services— Firewall as a Service (FWaaS), Secure Web Gateway (SWG), Cloud Access Service Broker (CASB), and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) — into a single cloud-delivered service. SASE solves the challenge of delivering consistent, secure access no matter where users, applications or devices live. Because it is a single service, SASE dramatically reduces complexity and cost.

Through this partnership, organizations can take advantage of a managed service powered by the industry’s most comprehensive SASE platform, uniquely positioned to protect all application traffic. By converging industry-leading capabilities into a single cloud-delivered platform, this SASE solution offers complete best-in-class security at scale while ensuring optimal work from anywhere experience and exceptional digital experience.

Proven Success With A Managed SD-WAN Service

Palo Alto Networks acquired CloudGenix (now Prisma SD-WAN) in 2020, but the partnership between CloudGenix and Wipro was established in 2017, to offer a fully managed SD-WAN service. The partnership was based on a common goal: to allow enterprises to rapidly deploy cloud, software-as-a-service (SaaS) and data center applications over any combination of transport, enabling a rich user experience at lower IT infrastructure cost.

“Our partnership with Palo Alto Networks has continued to grow with their acquisition of CloudGenix. Evolving customer preferences for integrated security solutions will further strengthen this relationship. Our managed SASE offering helps enable organizations to embark on their digital transformation journeys in a comprehensive, secure manner while reaping the benefits of our foundational SD-WAN technology and aligning their IT landscape for future workforce and business,” said Apurba Dutta, General Manager and Business Head, Network and Infra Security for Cloud and Infrastructure Services, Wipro.

A Win-Win Combination for SASE: Best Solutions Paired With Best Services

Prisma SD-WAN delivers the industry’s first next-generation SD-WAN with the following unique characteristics: application-defined, autonomous and cloud-delivered branch. Powered by machine learning, it enables a secure cloud-delivered branch that is simple, high-performance, and cost-effective.

Prisma SD-WAN is integrated with Prisma Access, the industry’s most complete cloud-delivered security platform, to provide a comprehensive SASE solution. Together with Prisma SD-WAN and Prisma Access, customers gain security and app-SLAs for all applications, best-of-breed networking and security, and the power of data science-based automation of IT operations.

Wipro’s strong consulting and security operations center combined with the power of the most complete SASE solution by Palo Alto Networks presents a compelling proposition for organizations.

The result? Organizations can transform and secure their critical network infrastructure with best-in-class solutions without the complexity of deploying, integrating, and managing the entire security life-cycle. They can benefit from:

  • Best-of-breed networking and security solutions
  • Freedom to adopt cloud, unified communications as a service (UCaaS), SaaS, and other modern applications without compromising security, performance, or visibility
  • Cost savings by eliminating complex infrastructure
  • Best customer service with expertise on any use case
