Palo Alto Networks (NYSE: PANW), the global cybersecurity leader, announced today that it has completed its acquisition of PureSec, a leader in serverless security, to extend its Prisma™ cloud security strategy.
There are no flawless software systems or applications. When flaws result in security vulnerabilities, threat actors exploit them to compromise those systems and applications and, by extension, the endpoints on which they reside. Although software vendors issue patches to remediate flaws, many financial institutions do not apply all available patches to their production environments. In addition, when systems or applications reach their end-of-support, they no longer receive vulnerability patches from their vendors. These two scenarios describe the conditions under which a system or application is considered "unpatchable." When patching or upgrading is no longer feasible, security professionals need to identify alternative ways to secure the unpatchable systems and applications to support their ongoing use in the environment.
Through network security consolidation, government agencies can achieve tighter
integration between previously disparate systems while automating and simplifying
the process for responding to and preventing malicious activity.
As Governments adopt digital technologies – employee remote access, citizen self-service, SaaS, cloud, and more – these same technologies introduce new points where the network can be infiltrated, and new valuable data that must be secured. The result was a cyber security arms race where new threats were countered with new security point products.
Today, governments are consolidating security appliances and functions to gain better visibility and use scarce cybersecurity professionals wisely.

A prominent Fortune 1000 company with more than 10,000 workloads across 100 AWS® accounts achieved several important goals by implementing Prisma Public Cloud. This use case provides an overview of the immediate benefits Prisma Public Cloud provided, including the ability to enable forensics, achieve visibility into risk posture, and automate DevSecOps.
The dynamic nature of public cloud environments requires security operations teams to adapt and embrace a new approach to securing the cloud. Threat assessment and mitigation are significantly impacted due to ephemeral cloud environments, decentralized management models, and distributed data across multi-cloud deployments. Threat prevention for the cloud needs to be built around the principles of attack surface reduction through segmentation and prevention controls, advanced threat detection measures built around user, network and host activity monitoring and behavioral baselines, and rapid response through automated remediation.
Prisma Public Cloud for Google Cloud dynamically discovers cloud resource changes and continuously correlates raw, siloed data sources including user activity, resource configurations, network traffic, threat intelligence, and vulnerability feeds to provide a complete view of public cloud risk.
The journey to the cloud is not a linear one, and organizations choose to migrate to the cloud in a multitude of ways and approaches. The resulting complexity is the enemy of security. In fact, according to ESG, “36% of organizations use between 24 to 49 different security products while 19% use more than 50 different products from an assortment of vendors.” All this noise only makes way for more security concerns such as integration issues, misconfigurations, and access control.
To overcome this complexity and succeed in the cloud, organizations must demand security solutions that can quickly and effectively scale with changing business needs. Prisma by Palo Alto Networks is the industry’s most complete cloud security offering for today and tomorrow, providing unprecedented visibility into data, assets, and risks across the cloud and delivered with radical simplicity.
This e-book provides a framework for developing a security-first approach to monitoring the state of your cloud environment, applying rapid fixes, and gaining control over all your operations in the cloud.
The way your business leverages cloud and SaaS technologies evolves each and every day -- including where they access systems and data from. As a result, many security and technology executives find it a challenge to strike the right balance between speed and risk. If you’re looking for ideas and best practices to ensure consistent, comprehensive security without adding additional complexity, check out our Prisma resource center for tips and best practices to inform how your next step in your cloud security journey.
