Embed security in your application development workflow

Automate the protection of your apps and data

Palo Alto Networks makes it easy to automatically deploy and integrate advanced security capabilities into today’s dynamic multi-cloud environments, so you can eliminate security bottlenecks and better protect apps and data in the cloud.

A three-phased approach for maximum benefit

Security is a shared responsibility in today’s cloud environments. This means that you, not the vendor, are responsible for protecting your apps and data in the cloud. With the ability to automatically embed advanced security capabilities in the cloud environment, security teams can eliminate the bottlenecks development teams often encounter, enabling you to protect your apps and data.

Through our phased approach to automation, your organization can fulfill its role in the Shared Responsibility Model and improve its overall security posture in the cloud.
