Among the many story lines to emerge from Ignite ’22 in Las Vegas this week was the continued evolution of Palo Alto Network Inc.’s partnership with Google LLC.
The security platform provider announced plans to combine Security Service Edge functionality from its Prisma Cloud with Google’s BeyondCorp Enterprise offering to provide hybrid users with Zero Trust Network Access 2.0 for securing applications. The announcement followed the news last year when Google released Cloud IDS, an intrusion detection system jointly developed with Palo Alto Networks.
“We bring together BeyondCorp and Prisma Access to take a look at how we can make sure any device, any user, any application is secure throughout,” said Joshua Haslett (pictured), strategic technology partner manager at Google. “We need to make sure that the content that’s being accessed or loaded into the environment is inspected. You can’t just create a perimeter anymore, you need to strategize with zero trust.”
Haslett spoke with theCUBE industry analysts Dave Vellante and Lisa Martin at Ignite ’22, during an exclusive broadcast on theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s livestreaming studio. They discussed how Google and Palo Alto Networks are collaborating to address enterprise security. (* Disclosure below.)
Shared security approach
For Google, a key element in its partnership with Palo Alto Networks has been access to the significant amount of global threat intelligence the company gathers to keep its clients protected.
“They’ve been able to leverage the intelligence of what they ingest from all of their existing customers,” Haslett said. “We get this shared intelligence from the way that Palo Alto Networks leverages that capability and we’ve brought that natively into Google Cloud with Cloud Intrusion Detection. Not only do we work on how we secure our own platform, we work with trusted partners to make sure that customers have the shared security model.”
This shared security approach is part of Google’s ongoing focus to ensure customers have confidence and trust in placing critical data in the public cloud.
“We want to be a trusted cloud for customers to deploy on,” Haslett said. “This is about making sure that applications no matter where they are, that databases no matter where they are, and users no matter where they are, are all secure in that new framework of deploying and embracing innovation on public cloud.”
