What is Prisma SaaS by Palo Alto Networks?

Since software as a service is so easy, use of SaaS applications is exploding. Because of that simplicity, though, the security risks of SaaS are also on the rise. Unsanctioned SaaS apps can expose sensitive data and propagate malware, and even sanctioned SaaS adoption can increase the risk of data exposure, breaches and noncompliance. By offering advanced data protection and consistency across applications, Prisma SaaS reins in the risks. It addresses your cloud access security broker needs and provides advanced capabilities in risk discovery, data loss prevention, compliance assurance, data governance, user behavior monitoring and advanced threat prevention. Now you can maintain compliance while preventing data leaks and business disruption through a fully cloud-delivered CASB deployment.

Prisma SaaS by Palo Alto Networks is also known as Palo Alto Networks Prisma SaaS, Prisma SaaS, Palo Alto Networks Aperture, Aperture.

Protects cloud data at rest and sends valuable notifications in a timely manner

What is our primary use case?

This is a CASB product that we use to protect data that is in the cloud. We work with our client to protect them from unknown threats, as well as known threats such as the inadvertent sharing of files. An example of this is the uploading of a file by an admin that contains sensitive data that was not intended to be shared with anyone who is external to the organization, such as a Gmail address. This solution offers protection from these kinds of problems.

Pros and Cons

  • "This solution provides a DLP on the cloud and very few people have a scanning device for data at rest."
  • "I would like to see support for custom applications."

What other advice do I have?

This is a fairly good product if you are looking for something to protect data at rest. There are alternatives, like Oracle and McAfee, that also provide similar solutions, but you should do a POC with them first. In fact, you should always start with a POC because everyone has different needs. If you take the training that is available then you will be able to handle the maintenance yourself. There can be challenges when there are compliance issues, like somebody putting a file into quarantine. It will have to be taken out manually, and if the user is untrained then they will require…

Hands-off security that we don't have to maintain

What is our primary use case?

The company I work for mainly uses Palo Alto Networks Prisma SaaS to secure our network.

Pros and Cons

  • "Its hands-off security and the fact that we don't have to maintain it are the most valuable features."
  • "They automatically update and they should give us time to fully understand what they're updating so that we can make sure it doesn't impact production."

What other advice do I have?

They're unique in that they're watching our network. They're just constantly updating and patching, watching for potential threats. As long as they keep on doing that but allow us time to understand what they're updating before they do it, it would help out. You get what you pay for. They're the best in class. I would rate it a nine out of ten.

Enables us to easily monitor everything coming over the network and work accordingly

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution to secure the network. We block unwanted traffic.

Pros and Cons

  • "Monitoring is the most valuable feature because we can easily monitor all kinds of stuff coming over the network. We can check the dashboard and work accordingly."
  • "One thing that would help is if we could get a guide. With Cisco, for example, you can just type the problem regarding your Cisco product and you will easily get your solution. In Palo Alto, however, it's not easy to find the solutions."

What other advice do I have?

Ultimately, Palo Alto is a very advanced firewall. The firewall uses activation awareness. This firewall can easily identify what applications are running behind the network. This is a good solution to use. I would rate this solution as eight out of ten.

We are a solution provider and we work with our customers to provide them with cloud-based solutions.

One of the primary use cases is to create a more secure tunnel between home and office, allowing people to more securely work remotely from home.

Pros and Cons

  • "The performance is good."
  • "The price can be reduced to make it more competitive."

What other advice do I have?

This is the best product that I have looked at, out of all of the competitors. We are still testing it, but from what I have seen, it is really good compared to the others. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.
