Safely Enables BYOD Initiative,
Increases End-User Productivity, and Accelerates Rollout of New Digital Banking Services
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – July 14 , 2017 – Palo Alto Networks® (NYSE: PANW), the next-generation security company, today announced that Bank OCBC NISP — one of the oldest and largest banks in Indonesia — selected the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform to strengthen security as the bank pursues a mobile, digital-first business strategy.
With more than 3,000 mobile users operating in an increasingly digital industry, Bank OCBC NISP faced a mounting challenge to prevent cyberthreats from infiltrating its business network. The bank initiated a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policy; however, traditional firewalls and antivirus software could not keep up with the onslaught of persistent and zero-day attacks able to find openings through these end-user devices.
By deploying the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform, the bank now has advanced threat prevention that automatically inspects traffic and blocks cyberattacks. The Palo Alto Networks platform also provides the bank’s security team with deep visibility and control to safely enable legitimate applications through its internet gateways and into the core data centers.
"Compared to other offerings we evaluated, the threat identification and prevention capabilities of the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform are of a different standard and allow our staff to work securely from anywhere. It has transformed our productivity."
