A More Comprehensive Cloud
Palo Alto Networks continues to lead the way in the Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) space with innovations that better safeguard infrastructure, data, applications, networks and identities in the cloud. Much of the investment has been focused on moving security as close to the developers as possible so that problems can be identified earlier in the software development life cycle.
“A decade’s worth of digital transformation happened just in the last two years,” said Ankur Shah, Palo Alto Networks’ senior vice president of products. “And because of that, the bad actors are getting more sophisticated. They‘ve got more tools in their tool bag as our customers go digital. And we’ve got to stay ahead of the bad actor. We’ve got to out-innovate them.”
Some 26,000 partners and customers are expected to virtually attend Palo Alto Networks’ Ignite ’21 conference this week, where the company will debut Prisma Cloud 3.0, a next-generation CASB and the Cortex XMDR partner specialization. From spotting overpermissioned Microsoft Azure cloud accounts and reducing the time needed to remediate misconfigurations, here are some of the top innovations.
