SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Palo Alto Networks® (NYSE: PANW), the next-generation security company, today announced its Next-Generation Security Platform is available to customers of VMware Cloud™ on AWS®. Launched today with initial availability in AWS West (Oregon) region, VMware Cloud on AWS brings together VMware's enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) software and elastic, bare-metal infrastructure from Amazon® Web Services (AWS) to give organizations a consistent operating model and application mobility for private and public cloud. Combined with the power of Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform, the integrated offering delivers consistent and automated protection against cyberthreats to customers of VMware Cloud on AWS.
To keep pace with the global online world, virtualization technology allows an organization's applications and data to be deployed across public, private and hybrid cloud computing environments to more easily adapt and support business demands. However, consistent security across the enterprise footprint, automation and building scalable, resilient, cloud-centric security architectures are key challenges that must be addressed as organizations move to a hybrid cloud environment.
Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform allows customers to protect their on-premise, private and public cloud presence with next-generation security features that deliver superior visibility, control and threat prevention at the application level when compared to other cloud-oriented security offerings. This enables customers to securely migrate applications and data from their software-defined data center into VMware Cloud on AWS.
VMware Cloud on AWS technology partners enable customers to deploy the same proven solutions seamlessly in both the public and private cloud. VMware simplifies the deployment and eliminates the need for partners to refactor solutions for VMware Cloud on AWS. If a partner solution works on-premise in a VMware vSphere® environment, it will also work in VMware Cloud on AWS. VMware technology partners complement and enhance the native VMware Cloud on AWS service and enable customers to realize new capabilities.
