In this pandemic, users want to work remotely and that means we need centralized control of remote users, our branch offices, and the head office. Prisma Access collects everything together and provides us with centralized management, enabling us to manage all our locations and users globally. It manages on-premises networks, but it has its own infra in the cloud.

The use case for our clients is that they have branch office locations all over the world. Users can connect over the internet and inspection of their traffic will happen on the Prisma infrastructure. Remote users can also connect to the VPN through Prisma infrastructure, and they can connect their data center with the Prisma infrastructure as well. It's a cloud solution from Palo Alto Networks. Customers just need to establish an IPSec tunnel from their on-prem device with Palo Alto's closest location, which they have all over the world—100-plus locations.

I recently worked on a huge project for a new entity of a major semiconductor company. We had a greenfield deployment where we were building everything from scratch. The primary use case was to build a solution that meets the following requirements: * Provides Zero Trust Network Access for all remote users. * Provides seamless performance. * Avoids all bottlenecks that the traditional VPN concentrators have with regards to being a single point of failure by putting the entire global traffic to a particular VPN concentrator. On the secondary front, we did a couple of integrations with Cisco Viptela. It is an SD-WAN solution for ensuring traffic optimization, traffic steering, branch-to-branch connectivity, and branch cloud connectivity. We had to ensure adequate performance and zero trust and have metrics and security compliance with all standard regulatory frameworks such as GDPR for the European region. This was a huge deployment with a budget of close to 2 million dollars. The plugin version is 2.1.086 innovation, and the platform version is 2.1.

My customers are military and federal government agencies. They're really interested in Secure Access Service Edge technology for their endpoints. Palo Alto Prisma is one of the solutions we use to make the SASE solution work for endpoints. For our customers, we normally do SD-WAN, Zero Trust, SWG, and SWaaS. Nobody has really asked for ADEM yet.

We could write a book about our use cases. It provides best-of-breed optimization in CASB and SASE together. Our primary use case is enabling users from all walks of life, and all over the planet, to have remote access in the most optimized way. Prisma Access is a SASE-oriented solution, making it a hybrid and SaaS. Of course, it's built on Google's high-capacity backbone, but it is provider-neutral.

One of the main advantages we have found of Prisma Access is that it has gateways across multiple continents. Due to that, many users can connect from different parts of the world will be able to access everything very fast. Also, internet access through VPN has become much simpler in getting the traffic to our on-prem data center.

We use it to securely access cloud data centers or cloud platforms. If a customer has a lot of workload in the cloud, then from the Prisma Access cloud, they can create secure access to all cloud platforms.

We primarily use the solution for mobile users and mainly mobile laptops. In some cases, we use the solution for cloud tenant portals in Azure. We use it to connect those back into the network.

We are a system integrator and Prisma Access is one of the security products that we implement for our clients. We handle all products, from high-level to low-level, and we propose an end-to-end solution for each customer. I am a pre-sales architect and engineer. Prisma Access is the name of the GlobalProtect Cloud Service. Normally, it is sold to users who want to use a VPN agent.

We are a services organization at the diagnostic stage. We generally see what matches the customer's requirements. The primary use case of this solution mostly serves as remote access to the applications, and the secure access of applications both for the cloud and for their private data centers. They are mainly using the zero-trust platform, which is very commonly used right now.
