Two integration Options for Palo Alto Prisma Access Cloud-delivered Security Service
Many Silver Peak SD-WAN customers have adopted Palo Alto Prisma Access cloud-delivered security services. You might be wondering how you can make Silver Peak and Palo Alto work together to take advantage of secure local internet breakout from your branch or remotes sites to maintain both the performance and security of your business applications.
The Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN edge platform integration with Palo Alto Networks’ Prisma Access cloud-delivered security enables enterprises to shift a secure access service edge (SASE) solution. The joint solution can be deployed via two different integration methods, both centrally managed within the Silver Peak Unity Orchestrator management console. Either will work, but each is meant to enable a different type of deployment.
When adopting SaaS applications such as Office365, Salesforce, Box, Atlassian and others, it’s important that users connect directly to the nearest point of presence for the SaaS provider. This delivers the highest quality of experience to application users. It’s also important to ensure the application traffic directed to the internet from the branch location(s) is secure.
The integration of the Silver Peak EdgeConnect platform with the Palo Alto Prisma Access cloud-delivered security service enables secure local internet breakout from branch or remote locations and eliminates the need to backhaul cloud-destined traffic to the data center. An instance of Palo Alto Prisma Access located as close to the user as possible inspects and secures application traffic before forwarding it on to the SaaS provider.
The Silver Peak integration with Palo Alto Prisma Access simplifies the deployment process for a modern cloud-delivered security service, significantly reducing the time and resources required to configure the tunnels.
