Prisma 2.0 Access (SASE)

Prisma 2.0 Access is the only complete cloud-delivered security platform that protects all apps with best-in-class security while delivering an exceptional user experience with new cloud-delivered management experience, ML-powered (machine learning-powered) security, Cloud SWG, Autonomous DEM, CloudBlades capabilities that enable Remote Browser Isolation support via partnerships, plus industry-leading scale and performance enhancements.

Prisma Cloud 2.0

Prisma Cloud 2.0 is the Industry's only comprehensive cloud native security platform for cyber attack prevention, which includes:

Data Security: Delivers data loss prevention (DLP) 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 (CSPM) capabilities, Data Security provides customers 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 (CWPP).

Identity-Based Microsegmentation: Integrates powerful Cloud Network Security (CNS) 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 (IAM): Security gives customers Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM) 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.

Prisma SaaS

SaaS addresses your cloud access security broker needs and provides advanced capabilities in risk discovery, data loss prevention, and data governance. Use Prisma SaaS to manage and secure the sanctioned SaaS application usage on your network and reduce the risks of malware propagation or exposure.

Prisma SD-WAN

Prisma SD-WAN is the industry's first next-generation SD-WAN solution that enables the cloud-delivered branch. As you adopt the cloud for scalability and collaboration, use the app defined and autonomous Prisma SD-WAN solution for enabling the cloud-delivered branch, and reducing enterprise WAN costs.


VM-Series is the virtualized form factor of the Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewall. To meet the growing need for inline security across diverse cloud and virtualization use cases, you can deploy the VM-Series firewall on a wide range of private and public cloud computing environments.


Help your network security teams secure Kubernetes environments with the CN-Series firewall. CN-Series is the industry’s first ML-powered firewall that helps enforce enterprise-level network security and threat protection in container traffic across Kubernetes namespace boundaries.




Strata is an industry-leading network security suite. Prevent attacks and manage network transformation while consistently securing users, applications, and data, wherever they reside.


Next-generation firewalls

Detect known and unknown threats, including in encrypted traffic, using intelligence generated across many thousands of customer deployments. That means they reduce risks and prevent a broad range of attacks. For example, they enable users to access data and applications based on business requirements as well as stop credential theft and an attacker’s ability to use stolen credentials.


Manage all your firewalls irrespective of where they are: at the perimeter, in a data center or in the cloud.

IoT Security

The industry’s most comprehensive IoT Security solution delivering ML-Powered visibility, prevention, and enforcement in a single platform. 
The IoT Security solution works with next-generation firewalls to dynamically discover and maintain a real-time inventory of the IoT devices on your network. Through AI and machine-learning algorithms, the IoT Security solution achieves a high level of accuracy, even classifying IoT device types encountered for the first time.  IoT Security also provides the automatic generation of policy recommendations to control IoT device traffic, as well as the automatic creation of IoT device attributes for use in firewall policies.


Includes a native SD-WAN subscription to provide intelligent and dynamic path selection on top of the industry-leading security that PAN-OS software already delivers. Key features of the SD-WAN implementation include centralized configuration management, automatic VPN topology creation, traffic distribution, monitoring, and troubleshooting.
Threat Prevention
Threat Prevention defends your network against both commodity threats—which are pervasive but not sophisticated—and targeted, advanced threats perpetuated by organized cyber adversaries. Threat Prevention includes comprehensive exploit, malware, and command-and-control protection, and Palo Alto Networks frequently publishes updates that equip the firewall with the very latest threat intelligence. You can use the Threat Vault to research the latest threats that Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls can detect and prevent.

DNS Security
Automatically secure your DNS traffic by using Palo Alto Networks DNS Security service, a cloud-based analytics platform providing your firewall with access to DNS signatures generated using advanced predictive analysis and machine learning, with malicious domain data from a growing threat intelligence sharing community.
The cloud-delivered WildFire® malware analysis service uses data and threat intelligence from the industry’s largest global community, and applies advanced analysis to automatically identify unknown threats and stop attackers in their tracks.
URL Filtering
URL Filtering gives you a way to control not only web access, but how users interact with online content. PAN-DB—the URL Filtering cloud— classifies sites based on content, features, and safety, and you can enforce your security policy based on these URL categories. You can also prevent credential phishing theft by tightly controlling the types of sites to which users can enter their corporate credentials.
