Benefits and features of Palo Alto Networks products and solutions

NEC has a deep understanding of all Palo Alto products and solutions and our auditing and consultancy services mean we can get a full understanding of your business requirements and provide the best solutions tailored to your business needs.

Here are some of the benefits and features of Palo Alto Networks products and solutions:

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 cyber attacks to reduce the increased risks and costs associated with detection and remediation.
Securing innovation
Security should not be an impediment to the 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 organisation should enjoy the same protection against cyber attacks regardless of how or where your applications and data reside.
Natively integrated
Palo Alto solutions feature technologies that leverage a single-pass prevention architecture to exert positive control based on applications, users, and content to reduce organisational attack surface, that support open communication, orchestration, and visibility, and enable consistent security posture from the network, to the cloud, to the endpoint.
Automated solutions
Creation and delivery of protection mechanisms against new threats to network, cloud, and endpoint environments.
Extensibility and flexibility
Allows for protection of customers as they expand, move off their physical network, or adopt new technologies.
Threat intelligence sharing
Provides protection by taking advantage of the network effects of a community of comprehensive global threat data to minimise the spread of attacks.
