Palo Alto Networks Cloud Services Overview
Our customer-deployed products, such as physical or VM-Series virtualized firewalls, Panorama™ appliances, the Terminal Services Agent, Traps™ agents, and the WildFire® appliance require that hardware and/or software is deployed and managed locally within your organization’s IT infrastructure.
By contrast, cloud services are hosted in the cloud by either Palo Alto Networks or a partner, and lie outside the control of your organization’s IT environment. The common theme among cloud services is that you derive the value by consuming the software and its functionality from a managed service without the burdens of deployment and operation that exist for additional software within your own IT infrastructure.
Another key aspect of online services is that the service provider is responsible for managing the operation, upkeep and maintenance of the software on these systems. Examples of Palo Alto Networks cloud services include URL Filtering with PAN-DB, WildFire and GlobalProtect™ cloud service as well as the AutoFocus™ threat intelligence service, Evident, Magnifier™ behavioral analytics, Traps management service and all other applications on the Application Framework.
Palo Alto Networks Corporate Infrastructure Overview
