Businesses embrace digital technologies that modernize their operations and enable innovation. Yet these same technologies introduce new security vulnerabilities and new data that must be secured. The result is a costly cybersecurity arms race, in which businesses introduce new security products to counter new attack vectors. Individually-managed or standalone security products add complexity, reduce visibility, and strain under-resourced security teams.
Temple University was founded in 1884 and is a R1 research institution with over 39,000 students. On a normal day Temple University has over 75,000 devices connected to their network. As a higher-ed institution, Temple needs to operate using an open network environment while protecting and securing their student’s data and research information. Temple University moved from their existing solution to the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform. A Palo Alto Networks Service Account Manager worked directly with the Temple team to ensure that the implementation went quick and smooth without any issues. Since implementing the Palo Alto Networks platform, Temple has experienced better stability and have been able to focus on securing their network versus continually maintaining their firewalls.
Palo Alto Networks® Security Operating Platform with high-capacity Next-Generation Firewalls deployed in a high-availability configuration, enabled with threat prevention and integrated cloud-based threat analysis
Seymour Public Schools was looking to replace their legacy Cisco firewalls, they checked the vulnerability of their existing system using a Security Lifecycle Review. The SLR report showed that more than 43,000 vulnerabilities were slipping past the legacy firewall. Because of this discovery they purchased the Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform.
This paper highlights an innovative security approach that eliminates the wide range of cloud risks that can cause breaches, while enabling organizations to achieve consistent and frictionless cloud protections for multi-cloud environments..
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, as well as keeping sensitive data safe by administering granular security policies based on users, applications and content.
Cybersecurity refers to a set of techniques used to protect the integrity of networks, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. According to Forbes, the global cybersecurity market is expected to reach 170 billion by 2020, fueled by an array of technology trends. This article identifies these trends and discusses why cybersecurity is a requirement to protect our digital way of life, as well as how to maintain effective cybersecurity to prevent successful breaches.
Join Rick Howard, CSO at Palo Alto Networks to learn about must-read books for all cybersecurity practitioners – be they from industry, government or academia — where the content is timeless, genuinely represents an aspect of the community that is true and precise, reflects the highest quality and, if not read, will leave a hole in the cybersecurity professional’s education that will make the practitioner incomplete.
Creating a culture of cybersecurity is critical for all organizations. Join the conversation with our own security pros to learn how they keep employees ahead of phishing attacks, share best practices for phishing education and explain how to use innovative technologies to strengthen cyber resilience.
