Palo Alto Networks as introduced five key innovations that make it easier for customers to adopt Zero Trust across their network security stack, including the industry’s first Cloud Identity Engine. This allows customers to easily authenticate and authorize their users across enterprise networks, clouds and applications, irrespective of where their identity stores live.
"The productivity of a hybrid workforce lies in the ability for users to move freely on and off the campus network and still securely access any applications or data from any device in any location. Enabling this seamless experience securely is one of the many promises of a Zero Trust architecture," said Anand Oswal, senior vice president, Firewall as a Platform, Palo Alto Networks.
Introductions of SaaS Security, Advanced URL Filtering, DNS Security, Cloud Identity Engine, and new ML-Powered Firewalls allow organizations to easily and effectively implement Zero Trust Network Security with four key benefits:
Secure access to the right applications: The first integrated Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) that allows customers to proactively extend secure access to all SaaS applications, including those never seen before.
Secure access for the right users: The industry's first Cloud Identity Engine allows customers to easily authenticate and authorize their users across enterprise networks, clouds and applications, irrespective of where their identity stores live.
