Palo Alto Networks’ Prisma Access achieves FedRAMP authorization
Prisma Access offers enhanced security for the US government's distributed workforce
The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) has accredited Palo Alto Networks’ cloud-based security platform, Prisma Access.
Having this authorization makes Palo Alto Networks uniquely qualified to assist the US government in securing its distributed workforce.
The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted work patterns at the federal level, increasing demand for reliable, secure connectivity at US government agencies and branch offices.
Prisma Access offers a suite of security features, including URL filtering and sandboxing, to safeguard users and applications against threats. Trusted internet connection (TIC)-compliant, the platform provides contextual controls to determine access levels for sensitive information.
As an added benefit, Palo Alto Networks’ cloud-based services work together to offer consistent, round-the-clock security to teams, regardless of their location.
"We've witnessed the pandemic accelerate cloud adoption and abruptly shift government organizations to remote work. Now, we are seeing an evolution towards a permanent hybrid workforce, calling for the increased need to adopt a Zero Trust security approach," said Dana Barnes, senior vice president of public sector at Palo Alto Networks.
Barnes continued, "Prisma Access provides agencies with the tools they need to securely enable their teams to work from anywhere with the high performance they demand to be successful. By developing best-in-class security, Palo Alto Networks is providing leading solutions to protect the U.S. government and its federal agencies from all security threats.”
