Palo Alto Networks and OPSWAT Expand Partnership to Address Endpoint Security Compliance
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --Palo Alto Networks (NYSE: PANW), the global cybersecurity leader, and OPSWAT, the leader in critical infrastructure protection, have announced an expanded partnership to continue enhancing secure access solutions. The partnership started in 2011 with Palo Alto Networks integrating the OESIS Framework Device Compliance Module into GlobalProtect™ to implement simple and consistent security policy compliance checks for all network connections. This integration was subsequently added in GlobalProtect Cloud Service (now Prisma™ Access) in 2017. Palo Alto Networks and OPSWAT have extended the partnership to integrate support for new endpoint platforms and IoT devices in GlobalProtect and Prisma Access for branch offices, retail locations, and mobile users. The integration detects and assesses the endpoint state and the third-party security applications running on the endpoint. The Host Information Profile (HIP) collects information about the security status of the endpoints in the network, which is used for gateway policy enforcement.
Why Most Zero Trust Network Access Solutions Are Too Trusting
Many organizations have turned to Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) solutions to answer the challenges of providing secure access to data, apps and the network to users from any location. ZTNA can be roughly defined as a set of technologies that provide secure, remote and restricted access to applications. The phrases “just in time, and just enough” and “least privileged access” are often used to describe this technology. However, when evaluating ZTNA providers, it’s important to make sure they don’t implicitly trust users once they’ve connected.
Announcing IoT Security: No Organization Is Protected Without It
IoT has arrived in a big way because the potential benefits are immense. Whether it’s building and street light sensors, flow monitors, surveillance cameras, IP phones, point-of-sale systems, conference room technology or so much more, IoT is on the network and in the organization. IoT has become an essential piece of infrastructure for every enterprise and business. As I talk with IT organizations, they tell me they want an IoT security solution that lets them keep moving at full speed while alleviating their security concerns. We’ve developed an approach we believe can balance both of these needs.
How Palo Alto Networks and Okta Are Helping Enable Secure Remote Work
In the last few months, many people have had to learn how to work, absorb lessons, teach and collaborate effectively while physically distant. With all these changes, businesses, schools and governments have tried to keep other changes minimal, such as how we access the apps and data needed to do our work. So it’s no surprise that Okta’s most recent app usage report listed Palo Alto Networks GlobalProtect as the fastest-growing security app in Okta’s integration network for the month of March. The GlobalProtect subscription for Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls extends consistent security policies to remote workers and assists in eliminating remote access blindspots. Prisma Access is the industry’s most comprehensive secure access service edge (SASE) platform that offers the same security and remote access capabilities as GlobalProtect and Next-Generation Firewalls, but from the cloud and without having to deploy new infrastructure. A recent blog post explored how Prisma Access has scaled rapidly to help our customers power the new normal. Both Next-Generation Firewalls – and now, Prisma Access – integrate with Okta Identity Cloud to further simplify the remote worker experience.
Secure EUC Environments with Palo Alto Networks and Nutanix
A Zero Trust security model, or “never trust, always verify,” is the gold standard for reducing cyber risk. It assumes that any user, system or device is inherently untrustworthy. While traditional security architectures focused on identifying threats attempting to breach an organization’s network perimeter, a Zero Trust architecture makes no assumptions about the safety or validity of traffic, even in the data center.
Cortex XDR Managed Threat Hunting Is Available To All Customers
It’s no secret that security teams rarely have the time to proactively hunt threats. Between triaging alerts, managing security policies and responding to fire drills, teams often lack the time or resources for threat hunting. Plus, threat hunting is complex; doing it well requires a unique combination of security expertise and deep understanding of data sources across the enterprise. Even fully mature security operations centers need help. We’re happy to tell you that the help you need has arrived.
