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.
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.
Manufacturers are employing the industrial internet of things and other innovative technologies to produce quality goods efficiently. Read this platform brief for a summary of how Palo Alto Networks helps manufacturers compete in the global marketplace while streamlining security operations, protecting valuable data, and preventing new and known threats from impacting operations or uptime of corporate and ICS/SCADA networks.
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.
CAME Group (CAME) provides automation systems for residential and industrial entrances, parking lots, and access control points. With 50 branches in 40 countries all networked with its corporate headquarters in Italy, CAME was uniquely challenged to provide a network architecture that ensured both secure network access and secure endpoints. Targeted attacks by malware, such as CryptoLocker, were frequently infiltrating servers and PCs, disrupting productivity and creating unpredictable remediation costs. Traditional antivirus software was ineffective in stopping such attacks.
By deploying the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform with Next-Generation Firewalls, Threat Intelligence Cloud services, and Advanced Endpoint Protection, CAME successfully prevents cyberthreats from infiltrating endpoint devices and its network. Through consolidation, CAME is saving $2.5 million over three years, with an additional $250,000 in savings by eliminating remediation costs on endpoint devices. Moreover, the company now has uniform security policies enterprise-wide, with increased visibility and control over network traffic for improved bandwidth and application performance.
SANTA CLARA, CA – April 29, 2015 – Palo Alto Networks® (NYSE: PANW), the leader in enterprise security, today announced that OSRAM has selected, deployed, and standardized its security infrastructure on the Palo Alto Networks Enterprise Security Platform.
OSRAM is one of the two leading light manufacturers in the world. The company’s portfolio covers the entire value chain from components—including lamps, electronic control gear, and opto semiconductors such as light-emitting diodes (LED)—as well as luminaires, light management systems, and lighting solutions.
