Palo Alto Networks announced Prisma Cloud 2.0 which includes four new cloud security modules. The company states that it is the industry’s only comprehensive Cloud Native Security Platform, which is designed to secure multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud environments and cloud-native applications.
Prisma Cloud modules include:
- Data Security delivers data loss prevention capabilities, offering discovery, classification, and malware detection for AWS S3. Enterprises operating in regulated industries can leverage Data Security when adopting the cloud to help meet various compliance requirements. When used in conjunction with Cloud Security Posture Management capabilities, Data Security provides customers an important context about their true cloud risks around data exposure.
- Web Application and API Security helps protect web applications against Layer 7 and OWASP Top 10 threats, integrated with the unified agent framework that enterprises already use today for Cloud Workload Protection Platforms.
- Identity-Based Microsegmentation integrates powerful Cloud Network Security capabilities, following the acquisition of Aporeto, to provide end-to-end visibility of network communications, along with comprehensive security policy control and management.
- Identity and Access Management Security gives customers Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management capabilities and allows them to gain visibility into who has access to specific cloud resources and secure those resources by establishing automated least-privileged identity access.
Varun Badhwar, Senior Vice President for Product, Prisma Cloud, Palo Alto Networks said,
“Today, organizations are using multiple clouds in many different ways. This has brought many benefits such as quick deployment, increased agility and rapid feature rollout, but also has brought the potential for many different kinds of risk. Prisma Cloud 2.0 addresses these challenges with a unified solution that helps companies detect threats to their cloud resources, maintain compliance, secure cloud-native applications, protect cloud networks and application communications, and enforce permissions and secure identities across workloads, a true comprehensive cloud security solution.”
