The downside of the ever-decreasing cost of computing power is that it gives cyber criminals the ability to launch automated and sophisticated attacks at increasingly lower cost. It is now cheaper than ever to conduct successful cyberattacks, which has led to an onslaught of malicious activity against organizations, threatening the foundations of trust in digital systems.
The end goal of security is to enable operations to flourish and keep your organisation out of the headlines associated with cyber breaches. This means reducing the likelihood of a successful attack. By focusing on prevention, the Palo Alto Networks next-generation security platform reduces cybersecurity risk to a manageable degree, allowing organisations to compartmentalise their most serious threats and focus on business operations.
Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls classify all traffic (including encrypted traffic) based on application, application function, user and content. Users can create comprehensive and precise security policies, resulting in safe enablement of applications. This lets only authorised users run sanctioned applications, greatly reducing the surface area of cyber attacks across the organisation.
WildFire cloud-based threat analysis service is the industry’s most advanced analysis and prevention engine for highly evasive zero-day exploits and malware. The cloud-based service employs a unique multi-technique approach combining dynamic and static analysis, innovative machine learning techniques, and a ground-breaking bare metal analysis environment to detect and prevent even the most evasive threats.
Palo Alto Networks Aperture provides complete visibility across all user, folder and file activity, providing detailed analysis that helps users transition from a position of speculation to one of knowing exactly what is happening at any given point in time.
This provides the ability to view deep analytics into day-to-day usage, which enables you to quickly determine if there are any data risk or compliance-related policy violations.
Palo Alto Networks security platform allows for the consistent enforcement of security policy, including threat detection and advanced intelligence analytics, in both physical and virtual environments. It does this by classifying all traffic by application, user and content, regardless of where it lives. With these measures in place, the platform enables the secure adoption of new productivity-enhancing technologies, such as public and private cloud and SaaS applications.
