The purpose of this white paper is to clarify how Networks Aperture™ SaaS security service can be used in compliance with EU data protection requirements, including the upcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation.
Prevention-oriented architecture is transforming the way we operate, maintain and defend cyber environments. This document explains the methodology and capabilities Palo Alto Networks delivers to prevent successful attacks and protect our digital way of life.
Most organizations deploy a number of security products to protect their endpoints, including one or more traditional antivirus solutions. Nevertheless, cyber breaches continue to increase in frequency, variety and sophistication. Faced with the rapidly changing threat landscape, current endpoint security solutions and antivirus can no longer prevent security breaches on the endpoint. Palo Alto Networks® Traps™ advanced endpoint protection replaces traditional antivirus with a unique combination of the most effective, purpose-built, malware and exploit prevention methods that pre-emptively block known and unknown threats from compromising a system.
SCADA and Industrial Control Systems experience unprecedented levels of agility, speed, and cost savings with the adoption of information technology and increased connectivity to supporting networks.
However, with this modernization have also come undesired IT vulnerabilities and other threat vectors which are increasingly being exploited by malicious actors.
The need for improved security in ICS has never been higher and has become a board-level issue for many organizations.
In this paper Mario Chiock, Cybersecurity & Disruptive Technology Executive Adviser and Del Rodillas Senior Manager, SCADA and Industrial Controls Cybersecurity go through the nine core capabilities that define this 21st century security platform for industrial control systems.
Panorama reduces network complexity with logical, functional device groups, simplifies
network management with easy, global policy control, and reduces the time that threats linger
on your network with actionable data highlighting critical information for response prioritization.
Organizations are adopting Google® Cloud Platform to take advantage of the same technologies that drive common Google services. Many business initiatives, such as big data, analytics and machine learning, deployed on GCP allow you to leverage contextual data collected from billions of search engine data points. The power behind GCP, combined with agility and a global footprint, help you quickly deploy enterprise-class applications and services.
This paper explains why combining two best-in-class solutions—the Citrix NetScaler
application delivery controller (ADC) and the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation
Firewall (NGFW)—is the best approach for today’s enterprises to build a network
capable of fully addressing cloud requirements for secure application delivery.
In today’s growing data center threat landscape, an effective cybersecurity strategy is imperative for software-defined data centers. VMware® and Palo Alto Networks® have partnered on a solution that leverages NSX™ to enable provisioning and seamless insertion of VM-Series next-generation firewall and advanced threat prevention in your software-defined data centers.

This paper examines the attacker’s mindset, first providing insights into the motivations and high-level methods shaping today’s threat landscape and accelerating the need for endpoint security technologies capable of preventing – not just detecting – both known and unknown threats.
With the VM-Series and GlobalProtect™ now available on AWS®, you can protect your mobile workforce and your network from Internet-borne threats while dramatically reducing administrative effort and associated costs with an appliance-based, mobile-security and remote-access solution.
Overworked security staff, manual processes , and uncoordinated security tools can hamper security operations and tilt the odds in favor of cyber attackers . To address these common challeng es, organizations should consider advanced analytics solutions , which can accelerate threat detection and response and thus increase the efficiency and productivity of cybersecurity staff. Palo Alto Networks recently introduced its Magnifier behavioral analytics application to help its customers automate attack detection and streamline response. Given the global and unabating cybersecurity skills shortage, this type of advanced analytics solution may be just what CISOs need
It seems that nearly every day a major trusted brand is reporting a breach. The loss and impact felt by companies and individuals alike are significant, and IDC expects that lost business will be more tangible over time. A recent IDC survey of 2,500 consumers found that over three-quarters of respondents would be willing to switch providers if their data was lost to criminals. The size and scope of breaches is mind numbing, and CEOs, board members, and everyday citizens continue to ask, "How do we get better?"
With the VM-Series and GlobalProtect™ now available on AWS®, you can protect your mobile workforce and your network from internet-borne threats while dramatically reducing administrative effort and associated costs with an appliance-based, mobile-security and remote-access solution.
An overview of the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security platform for the financial sector
The financial services industry remains a favorite target for cyberattacks. The lure of sensitive data and funds is quite strong to malicious actors. Additional challenges in securing financial institutions include their complex IT environments, continued use of legacy technology, and preference for defense in depth (which is often equated with vendor diversity). Regulators continue to impose new obligations to strengthen controls and better protect the industry.
Top threats to the industry over the past two years include various families of ransomware, remote access Trojans, and information stealers. All of these target the endpoint as this is the path to the valuable data held by the financial institution.
The traditional approach of point products for specific security functions and network perimeter-centric protection has proven to be ineffective. Reports of data breaches in the financial services industry have become commonplace. A different, and better option is a multi-layered approach based on natively integrated, security enforcement points that share threat information and revise protections accordingly. This results in automated prevention and next-generation security for the network, endpoints (servers, desktops, laptops), and the cloud.
Moreover, the use of cloud-based, dynamic malware analysis and threat intelligence enables updated preventions in as little as five minutes - across our entire customer base after the initial discovery anywhere. This applies to the local network, endpoint devices, or even the public cloud.
