  • Prisma Access protects all app traffic – Users can gain access to all apps with a Zero Trust Network Access approach, while organizations can ensure they are secure against all threats, not just web-based apps and threats. Palo Alto Networks analyzed the threat data from more than 500 enterprise customers and found that 53% of all remote workforce threats are for non-web apps, which web proxy-based solutions can’t prevent. In fact, Prisma Access helps decrease the likelihood of a data breach by 45%.* 
  • Prisma Access delivers complete best-in-class security – Integrated threat prevention, web filtering, secure web gateway (SWG), firewall as a service (FWaaS), cloud access security broker (CASB) and more converge into a single cloud-delivered platform with 4.3M security updates per day, allowing organizations to rest assured their users and data are secure.* 
  • And all these features, while ensuring exceptional user experience – With a massively scalable network with ultra-low latency, organizations can provide the best digital experience for their end users no matter where they are located globally. Prisma Access delivers 10x more network throughput per tunnel for a faster remote access connection, plus 10x better performance SLA than other security vendors.*
