What is Prisma Access?
Formerly GlobalProtect cloud service, Prisma Access by Palo Alto enables organizations to deliver consistent security to their remote networks and mobile users. Seen as a generational step forward in cloud security, it uses cloud-delivered architecture to connect all users to all applications.
What is ZTNA?
Zero trust network access (ZTNA) emerged as a necessary response to highly distributed networks and supply chains. It is a security model that assumes every entity trying to connect to a network is potentially hostile.
What is ZTNA 2.0?
Unveiled by Palo Alto, Zero Trust Network access 2.0 (ZTNA 2.0) addresses what it sees as the shortcomings of a ZTNA 1.0 approach. The company describes ZTNA 2.0 as “zero trust with zero exceptions”. It involves continuously reassessing user trust and network traffic.
What is SSE?
Security service edge (SSE) combines network security services delivered from a cloud platform. An SSE deployment typically consists of a secure web gateway (SWG), a cloud access security broker (CASB), and secure remote access via ZTNA.
Because of this blend of services, SSE is often considered part of a secure access service edge (SASE) framework.
What is SASE?
Secure access service edge (SASE), pronounced “sassy,” is a concept Gartner first described in 2019. Primarily delivered as a service, it provides various converged network and security capabilities, including ZTNA.
