Legacy firewalls and remote work call for cybersecurity upgrade
Palo Alto Networks was approached by this major service provider to provide ML-Powered Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) that would help to address their lack of Layer 7 visibility and protection, the strain on operational resources due to legacy firewalls, and deployment of point products.
Additionally, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this organisation had to shift to remote working or work from home (WFH). Their existing on-premises VPN solution was unable to cope with the sudden surge in remote traffic. The pandemic also made it glaringly obvious that the current solution utilised was in no way able to support the business, especially in times of
rapid change and uncertainty.
As such, this company needed a unified solution that would provide consolidation of security products, consistent, secure access, enhanced visibility and control, ensure business continuity and scale alongside the business needs.
