Palo Alto Networks Prisma SASE stands out as a transformative solution, blending networking and security capabilities into a unified, cloud-delivered service. But, as with any significant IT investment, understanding its return on investment (ROI) is crucial, especially in a challenging business environment where every dollar counts.
Prisma SASE represents a seismic shift in how enterprises approach network security.

The TEI study reveals that the composite organization, an enterprise with 50,000 employees and $7 billion in annual revenue, achieved an ROI of 107% over 3 years with Prisma SASE, and a 50% decreased likelihood of a data breach. This figure is backed in addition to a net present value of $9.5 million over 3 years.
