Palo Alto – Network Security
As concern over cyberattacks continues to grow, you need to secure your network while continuing to enable your business. Blue Secure offers Palo Alto’s next-generation firewall delivers comprehensive visibility into network traffic based on applications, users and content, while allowing you to embrace and address your business needs.
Whether your focus is the data center, remote offices, highly regulated industry-specific processes or risk management, we enable you to gain full visibility and control over your network.
Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls offer a flexible security platform that can be deployed to address your unique business initiatives. Whether your IT initiatives range from addressing mobility and BYOD issues, to enabling security for your dynamic virtualized data center, we can help solve your needs. We understand the challenges you face, and can provide a security offering that empowers your users and aligns with your core business objectives.
• Threat Prevention
Use our next-generation firewall for a systematic approach to protection against modern malware
• Internet Gateway
Safely enable access to Internet applications with reduced risk by preventing inappropriate usage and dangerous content.
• Wireless Infrastructure
Secure your wireless corporate and guest network and enable BYOD for safe access to applications.
Enable enterprise mobility with security by protecting your traffic and data and ensuring that the device is okay.
• Server Virtualization and Cloud
Implement your data center virtualization initiatives with the appropriate security for both “north-south” and “east-west” traffic.
• Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure
Deliver access to virtual desktops while maintaining consistent enforcement of policy for application traffic
• Network Segmentation
Improve the overall security of your network and meet compliance requirements by splitting network traffic into separate segments
Safely Enable Applications
Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls identify, control, and safely enable applications, while also inspecting all content for threats. Identifying and controlling your data center traffic – physical or virtual reduces the scope of attacks by:
• Validating data center applications are in use on standard ports
• Blocking rogue or non-compliant applications
• Blocking known and unknown threats without degrading performance
• Systematically managing unknown traffic
Isolation and Segmentation of Mission-Critical Applications
Security best-practices dictate that your mission-critical applications and data should be isolated in secure segments using Zero Trust (never trust, always verify) principles at each segmentation point. The VM-Series can be deployed throughout your virtualized environment, residing as a gateway within your virtual network or in between the different VMs (applications), exerting control based on application, and user identity. This allows you to control the applications traversing your virtualized environment, while blocking potentially rogue or misconfigured applications and controlling access based on user identity. The exact same segmentation capabilities are available in the physical and virtual form factors, providing you with a consistently strong security posture.
Eliminating the VM Change-Security Update Lag
The speed of change in your cloud computing environment often times will outpace security, leaving you with the option of delay or weak security, neither of which is acceptable. To eliminate that security lag, the VM-Series includes automation features such as VM monitoring, dynamic address groups and a REST-based API to proactively monitor VM changes and dynamically feed those context changes into security policies, thereby eliminating the policy lag that may occur when your VMs change.
The solution allows you to manage your VM-Series deployments along with your physical security appliances, thereby ensuring policy consistency and cohesiveness. Rich, centralized logging and reporting capabilities provide visibility into virtualized applications, users and content.
