Governments and businesses must continuously assess the use of new applications and services that improve processes and operations. As such, they must weigh the business benefits from the adoption of newly sanctioned applications against potential risk to the business, its data and other resources. Applications themselves, such as remote access, can represent undue risk. In addition, if applications are not appropriately secured in the business network, today’s attackers can hide communications within the very communication mechanisms the applications use. Adoption of security that appropriately identifies, granularly controls and secures enterprise applications can be slow if those charged with such controls don’t understand the necessity, value or ease with which appropriate controls can be adopted.
Download our use case "Secure the Network through Application Visibility" for the benefits of this approach, along with some common concerns over adoption, and read about the experiences of several customers across different industries who made this transition.
Establishing, maintaining and demonstrating compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a necessity for all entities involved in payment card processing – including merchants, processors, acquirers, issuers, and service providers, as well as all other entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data (CHD) and/or sensitive authentication data (SAD). For all system components included in or connected to the Cardholder Data Environment (CDE), organizations must comply with more than three hundred requirements. It is in every organization’s best interest, therefore, to take advantage of network segmentation provisions stated in the PCI DSS to effectively isolate their CDE and thereby decrease the amount of infrastructure that is considered in scope.
Download our use case "Simplify PCI Compliance With Network Segmentation" to learn how Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform delivers maximum protection for an organization’s entire computing environment while greatly reducing the scope of PCI compliance.

In its 90-year history, Sielte SpA has evolved from a pioneering telephone and electrical systems company in Italy to an international cloud-based information and communication technology (ICT) service provider. Today, Sielte has annual revenue of over €400 million with cloud operations spanning Italy, Spain, Romania and Nigeria.
With 500 customers operating in its cloud, encompassing approximately 10,000 devices and a wide range of applications, Sielte must be constantly vigilant against cyberthreats. In fact, most of Sielte’s customers also struggle to contend with an ever more complex threat landscape and have begun demanding managed security services as part of the Sielte cloud offering. Increasing pressure from customers, combined with a breach to its previous Cisco firewall, prompted the company to immediately seek a new network security solution.
After evaluating the market, Sielte conducted a proof of concept (POC) to compare Juniper Networks with the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform, which consists of Next-Generation Firewalls, Threat Intelligence Cloud services, and Advanced Endpoint Protection. During the POC, the Palo Alto Networks platform detected an active cyberattack on Sielte’s network. This proved to be the deciding factor in the company’s final decision.
