The Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform protects our digital way of life by safely enabling applications and preventing known and unknown threats across the network, cloud, and endpoints. The native integration of the platform delivers a prevention architecture that can provide superior security at lower total cost of ownership.
Our platform has four major components that enable the prevention of successful cyberattacks:
- Natively integrated technologies that leverage a single-pass prevention architecture to exert positive control based on applications, users, and content to reduce organizational attack surface, that support open communication, orchestration, and visibility, and enable consistent security posture from the network, to the cloud, to the endpoint
- Automated creation and delivery of protection mechanisms against new threats to network, cloud, and endpoint environments
- Extensibility and flexibility that allows for protection of customers as they expand, move off their physical network, or adopt new technologies
- Threat intelligence sharing that provides protection by taking advantage of the network effects of a community of comprehensive global threat data to minimize the spread of attacks
Preventing successful cyberattacks
The end goal of security is to enable your operations to flourish and keep your organization out of the headlines associated with cyber breaches. This means reducing the likelihood of a successful attack. By focusing on preventing successful attacks, the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform reduces cybersecurity risk so that it is manageable and quantifiable, allowing organizations to compartmentalize their biggest threats and focus on business operations.
Security should not be an impediment to adoption of new mobility, SaaS, public or private cloud technologies that enable productivity. Only a natively integrated security platform, with components across these rapidly evolving enterprise technology environments, can keep pace with modern attackers, who draw no distinction as to the location of their target. Your organization should enjoy the same protection against cyberattacks regardless of how or where your applications and data reside.
Improving security and efficiency
Building security that simply detects threats and requires a manual response is too little, too late, as once your data goes out the door, your risks and costs increase exponentially. Manual remediation does little to reduce risk, is expensive in terms of time and money, and distracts from the identification of true threats. The Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform is designed to enable automated prevention of cyberattacks to reduce the increased risks and costs associated with detection and remediation.
