Read this brief to discover how Palo Alto Networks meets the security needs of higher education institutions by automatically preventing cyberthreats across cloud, network and endpoint devices at network speeds.
From pain medication to gene therapy, from clinical trials to regulatory approval, the modern pharmaceutical industry is built on research and information flow. Ensuring both the integrity of data in pharmaceutical operations as well as the protection of the resulting intellectual property are equally important to success. The safety and integrity of plant operations are equally vital to the company’s success. Effectively protecting the IT and OT networks in today’s broad-reaching pharmaceutical networks requires a modernized security approach. The Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform is the solution of choice for many modern pharmaceutical companies.
Palo Alto Networks® enterprise security platform is well suited for healthcare providers. Our ability to provide full visibility into all network traffic based on application (App-ID™), users (User-ID™) and content (Content-ID™) enables your security staff to rapidly assess the current state of your information and network security without any disruption to daily operations. You can discover where the organization is most at risk and make informed decisions about where to implement tighter controls. This Solution Brief available in Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish.
While organizations have gained operational flexibility and lowered data center costs by deploying virtualization solutions, the true promise of a secure, agile, extensible, and flexible private cloud continues to be elusive. One of the key barriers is the ability to deploy security services at the same pace as virtual machine deployments without compromising the level of protection needed. VMware and Palo Alto Networks have partnered to address these challenges.
Palo Alto Networks® strives to protect our way of life in the digital age by safely enabling applications and ensuring that customer data is secure, everywhere. As a leading cybersecurity company, we are focused on both the security and privacy of our customers, and we have developed our Next-Generation Security Platform from the ground up to support both.

To serve their citizens, federal/national, state and local governments must gather, create, or process sensitive information. As various high-profile breaches have demonstrated, this data is not sufficiently protected, particularly from the insiders whose actions are responsible for the majority of public sector security incidents. Traditional network security focuses on detecting outsiders attempting to steal data or disrupt network operations, but does little to monitor or limit the actions of legitimate users that make mistakes or deliberately misuse data. User and directory controls verify legitimate users, but they won't prevent accidental disclosure of sensitive data, exfiltration of sensitive data by legitimate users, or insiders with stolen credentials from accessing data. Preventing security incidents and protecting government information requires a comprehensive, organization-wide access approach that can accommodate the context of individual users, the data they need access to, and the limits on what they can do with that data. The Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform prevents security incidents while fully enabling user productivity by granting access contextually to those who need it, and denying it to all others. This, coupled with denying all applications that are not needed by the organization, immediately reduces a government organization’s threat posture.
When it comes to the use of software as a service (SaaS) applications within your organization, what you don’t know can hurt you. Like wolves in sheep’s clothing, unsanctioned or uncontrolled SaaS apps are probably sitting on your network right now, seemingly harmless and unobtrusive, enabling users to collaborate and do their jobs more productively. That is, until suddenly and without warning, they begin wreaking all sorts of havoc on your business, including data exposure, malware distribution and insertion, information leakage, and regulatory non-compliance.
The U.S. Government’s Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program “support(s) … government-wide and agency-specific efforts to provide adequate, risk-based, and cost-effective cybersecurity.” The CDM program is designed to roll out in three phases. This white paper describes how the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform, in combination with select technology and delivery partners, supports all three CDM phases and enables agencies to achieve the security objectives of the program.
