New updates minimize false network alerts, detect data exfiltration and provide comprehensive coverage of IaaS/PaaS services
SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — New updates to Prisma® Cloud, Palo Alto Networks (NYSE: PANW) Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) solution, help eliminate dangerous cloud blind spots and free security teams from the burden of alert fatigue. These critical features are available to the 2,000+ enterprises that trust Prisma Cloud, as well as future customers.
Cloud environments are growing ever more complex as organizations add more cloud providers, users, applications and resources. Most security solutions are not designed for this new world and lack the end-to-end visibility needed to accurately assess risks and alert security teams of advanced attacks, leaving them to deal with both unsecured cloud resources and the cacophony of false-positive alerts. Today’s Prisma Cloud CSPM updates help security teams address these issues.
“Companies don’t want to slow down to secure the cloud, and they shouldn’t have to,” said Varun Badhwar, senior vice president, Prisma Cloud at Palo Alto Networks. “An ideal CSPM solution needs to offer coverage for all cloud resources, should stay up to date as new resources are introduced, and must effectively detect real attacks while minimizing unnecessary false positives. Prisma Cloud addresses these issues and allows organizations to move quickly while staying secure.”
The five new features of Prisma Cloud are:
Network Data Exfiltration Detection
Anomalous Compute Provisioning Detection
Customizable Object-Level Scanning for AWS S3
“Gaining visibility into misconfigurations and identifying cloud infrastructure threats across dynamic public cloud environments is a continued challenge for organizations,” says ESG Vice President and Group Director, Cybersecurity, Doug Cahill. “The new capabilities in Prisma Cloud allow security teams to do this with greater breadth than before and lessen the overall amount of alerts that must be addressed by security teams.”
More information is available in our blog post.
Anomalous Compute Provisioning Detection is available now. Visibility-as-Code for OCI is available now. True Network Exposure for AWS, Customizable Object-Level Scanning for AWS S3 and Network Data Exfiltration Detection will be available in the next two months. Availability of some features on additional clouds will follow.
