Palo Alto Networks K2-Series Primary Use Case

Network Security & Virtualization at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees

The primary use for this solution depends on the preference of a customer and to some extent their existing environment.  

We have to establish things like:  

  • what are the business requirements  
  • how we can utilize what is existing or if the client needs to upgrade equipment  
  • what kind of servers do we put in  
  • what kind of servers does he have on cloud  
  • what kind of servers do we have on-premises  

So it all depends on the customer's requirements. If a query comes up with a client, I am happy to answer that and provide a resolution but the situation needs to consider specific needs.

Until recently, most of my time was spent implementing this product and our company still does that. As a security solutions architect, I'm now more focused on the architecture and that side of things. We're partners with Palo Alto.

The solution was a firewall that bridged the internal systems with their DMC equipment and/or restricted systems access that wasn't generally available to anyone outside of the organization.

We have eight VFDs. We have the bigger firewalls. I forget the model number but they're the bigger ones. We have smaller ones—the 220s— so we have a pretty good range of Palo Alto firewalls that we use in our company.

We are a system integrator and the Palo Alto K2-Series is one of the network solutions that we implement for our clients.

Many of the implementations that I am part of are for the banking sector in Egypt and generally, they are not interested in cloud-based solutions. The K2-Series is well-suited for this use case.
