Our approach to Cloud Security Posture Management

Visibility, Compliance and Governance

Prisma Cloud delivers comprehensive visibility and control over the security posture of every deployed resource. While some solutions simply aggregate asset data, Prisma Cloud analyzes and normalizes disparate data sources to provide unmatched risk clarity.

  • Cloud asset inventory

    Gain continuous visibility across all deployed assets from a single, unified console with more than 2.5 billion assets monitored across customers. Leverage automated workload and application classification across more than 100 services as well as full lifecycle asset change attribution.

  • Configuration assessment

    Immediately enforce configuration guardrails with more than 700 policies built in across more than 120 cloud services. Automatically fix common misconfigurations before they lead to security incidents. Build custom policies once that span across multicloud environments.

  • Compliance management

    Take advantage of continuous compliance posture monitoring and one-click reporting with comprehensive coverage (CIS, GDPR, HIPAA, ISO-27001, NIST-800, PCI-DSS, SOC 2, etc.) and support for custom reporting. Easily investigate and auto-remediate compliance violations.

  • Easy-to-use query language

    Gain security and operational insights about your deployments in public cloud environments. Perform configuration checks on resources and query network events across different cloud platforms. Turn queries into custom cloud-agnostic policies and define remediation steps and compliance implications.

  • Automated remediation

    Automatically resolve policy violations, such as misconfigured security groups within the Prisma Cloud console. Send alert notification to 14 third-party tools, including email, AWS Lambda, Security Hub, PagerDuty®, ServiceNow® and Slack®. Integrate with SOAR tools including Cortex® XSOAR for multi-step remediation playbooks.

Threat Detection

Static, positive/negative or rule-based policies are an essential foundation for effective cloud security, but alone do not adequately cover the entire threat landscape. Anomaly-based policies that leverage machine learning to monitor and report on suspicious or unusual activities complement traditional policy libraries for a comprehensive threat detection strategy.

  • Network threat detection

    Leverage intel on more than 500 billion flow logs ingested weekly to pinpoint unusual network activities such as port scans and port sweeps and DNS-based threats such as domain generation algorithms (DGA) and cryptomining.

  • User entity behavior analytics (UEBA)

    Monitor cloud environments for unusual user activities. Discover insider threats and potential account compromises. Leverage industry-leading ML capabilities with more than 5 billion audit logs ingested weekly.

  • Integrated threat detection dashboards

    Use powerful dashboards that highlight alerts and compromises within our console, helping you easily understand suspicious network communication and user activity.

Data Security

Prisma Cloud Data Security is purpose-built to address the challenges of discovering and protecting data at the scale and velocity common in public cloud environments. By combining the power of Palo Alto Networks Enterprise Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and WildFire® malware prevention service, only Prisma Cloud Data Security offers a comprehensive, integrated cloud native solution.

  • Multicloud Data visibility and classification

    Multicloud Data Visibility and Classification: With comprehensive visibility into the security and privacy posture of the data stored in AWS S3 and Azure Storage Blob, users immediately gain insight into any exposed or publicly accessible storage resources.

  • Data governance

    Use pre-built and customizable policies to detect data such as PII in publicly exposed objects. Enable or disable data compliance profiles for types such as PII, healthcare, financial and intellectual property based on mandates.

  • Malware detection

    By leveraging WildFire, Prisma Cloud identifies and helps protect against known and unknown file-based threats that may have infiltrated storage accounts.

  • Alerting

    View alerts for each object based on data classification, data exposure and file types. Forward alerts to AWS SQS, Splunk and Webhooks to notify other teams for investigation and remediation.
