Palo Alto Networks, the Santa Clara, Calif.-based global cybersecurity provider announced an expanded partnership that brings together BeyondCorp Enterprise from Google Cloud and Prisma Access from Palo Alto Networks to provide hybrid users secure and seamless access to applications — SaaS, cloud or on-premise — from managed or unmanaged devices.
Built on the backbone of the Google Cloud network, the cloud-delivered Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) 2.0 solution enables all users to work securely from anywhere regardless of device type. With Prisma Access, customers get ZTNA 2.0 security for all devices, branch offices and applications. BeyondCorp Enterprise Essentials enables secure access to applications and resources for unmanaged devices. Combined threat intelligence and machine learning automatically detects and remediates threats to users, applications or enterprise data.
“Legacy VPN and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) 1.0 solutions provide access to users that is too broad and lacks continuous security inspection, putting cloud-first and hybrid organizations at risk,” said Kumar Ramchandran, SVP, products for Palo Alto Networks, in a statement. “ZTNA 2.0 by Palo Alto Networks secures the modern hybrid enterprise. This partnership will allow organizations to benefit from the performance, scale and reliability offered by Google Cloud’s global network, coupled with the security expertise of Palo Alto Networks.”
Prisma Access from Palo Alto Networks
Palo Alto Networks Prisma Access platform helps transform networking and security to deliver a zero trust architecture that supports both managed and unmanaged devices while delivering consistent protections across the entire enterprise. According to Palo Alto Networks, as the industry’s only ZTNA 2.0 solution, it provides deep and ongoing inspection of all application traffic, even for allowed connections to prevent all threats, including zero-day threats, providing secure access for data centers, branch offices and mobile users. Prisma Access is built on Google’s global backbone to secure enterprises at cloud scale.
