Who We Are

Among Palo Alto Networks® 30,000+ customers, the Financial Services industry has significant representation. The Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform is used to maintain trust and confidence in financial transactions and to protect Personally Identifiable Information (PII) by preventing successful cyberattacks.

The attack surface continues to grow as the financial services industry evolves to:

  • Meet demands for more customer access over more devices and mediums
  • Leverage data assets to generate more tailored and engaging customer interactions
  • Innovate to deliver new financial products and offerings (with new alliances, as necessary)

Consequently, financial transactions, customer records, and intellectual property must be secured, but with more flexible use cases to enable the business.  

What We Do

This is accomplished with Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform, which provides:

  • SandboxingIDS/IPSfirewallURL filteringanti-malware and anti-exploit protection in a single platform.
  • Threat mitigation – detect, analyze and prevent threats, both known and unknown, including APTs.
  • Visibility into encrypted communications, which can hide threat communications.
  • Same cybersecurity protection in both physical appliances and virtual machines.
  • How We Are Different

  • Platform approach to ensure multi-layer defenses, with better visibility and correlation across security capabilities.
  • Application and user visibility at the firewall – automatically identify over 2000 applications and integrate with your enterprise directory.
  • Create “Zero Trust” network segments and allow access for approved applications and users rather than only ports and IP addresses.
  • Excellent detection rates of malware, viruses and APTs, powered by the community-driven nature of the platform. Efficiently process your traffic once across all security functions in a single pass with our purpose-built, single-pass processing architecture at speeds of up to 200 Gbps.
  • Seamless integration with some of the best technology providers in the industry to deliver a more holistic security approach.

    Simplify PCI Compliance with Network Segmentation PDF

    Establishing, maintaining and demonstrating compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a necessity for all entities involved in payment card processing – including merchants, processors, acquirers, issuers, and service providers, as well as all other entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data (CHD) and/or sensitive authentication data (SAD). For all system components included in or connected to the Cardholder Data Environment (CDE), organizations must comply with more than three hundred requirements. It is in every organization’s best interest, therefore, to take advantage of network segmentation provisions stated in the PCI DSS to effectively isolate their CDE and thereby decrease the amount of infrastructure that is considered in scope. Download our use case "Simplify PCI Compliance With Network Segmentation" to learn how Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform delivers maximum protection for an organization’s entire computing environment while greatly reducing the scope of PCI compliance.
