Google Cloud and Palo Alto Networks Forge New Security Alliance

Published On: January 7, 2023Categories: Buzz, Uncategorized

Palo Alto Networks has announced an expanded partnership that brings together BeyondCorp Enterprise from Google Cloud and Prisma Access from Palo Alto Networks to boost security for hybrid workers.

The combination provides Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) 2.0 delivered over the Google Cloud network. Palo Alto Networks’ Prisma Access supports 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 (ML) 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. “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”

The Prisma Access platform promises deep and ongoing inspection of all application traffic to prevent a wide variety of attacks, including zero-day threats, for data centers, branch offices and mobile users. Prisma Access is purpose-built on Google’s global backbone to secure enterprises at cloud scale.
