Palo Alto Prisma Access
Thanks to its purchase of SD-WAN specialist CloudGenix for $420 million in 2020, platform security vendor Palo Alto Networks is moving squarely into the SASE market. The vendor’s SASE offering is called Prisma Access 2.0.
Palo Alto Networks’ Prisma Access gives businesses a cloud-first approach to networking and security by connecting and securing mobile users, branch offices and retail locations. The Santa Clara, Calif.-based platform security vendor delivers protection from more than 100 locations in 76 countries around the world through a uniform, cloud-based infrastructure. The platform’s functions include firewall as a service, a cloud-based secure web gateway, zero trust network access with encrypted application access, authentication, and policy management and threat detection.
Prisma Access also offers security services, including advanced threat prevention, web filtering, sandboxing, DNS security, credential theft prevention, data loss prevention and next-generation firewall policies, according to Palo Alto Networks.
