Palo Alto Networks Latest Solution to Prevent Data Loss in these 4 Ways

Palo Alto Networks introducing services Enterprise Data Loss Prevention (DLP) that is delivered via the cloud. 

Anand Oswal, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Firewall as a Platform, Palo Alto Networks, explained that this service was developed to answer the data breach challenges that are currently increasing in the world of inj. “However, legacy solutions and single solutions used by an organization are sometimes inaccessible or unable to provide the right and effective solution to overcome these problems,” said Anand Oswal.

Anand said that the recently launched Enterprise DLP solution was not only capable, but also easy to deploy, no longer required new infrastructure in its implementation, could be integrated with existing security technologies, and, supported companies to store data in the cloud, on-premises. , or both.

This service is offered by Palo Alto to address three main issues of corporate data security:

  • Prevent data breaches by automatically identifying confidential intellectual property in the company and personally identifiable information (PII) on a consistent basis throughout the company.
  • Supporting compliance standards stipulated in regulations by supporting companies to meet data security requirements required in a number of regulations, including General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act ( HIPAA), California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and others.
  • Prevents risky user behavior so that it can help block the possibility of data being exposed or changing hands, whether intentional or unintentional.

Palo Alto Networks Enterprise DLP, which is one centralized cloud service, can be deployed across large enterprise environments in just minutes, without additional infrastructure. 

In addition, setting policy definitions and implementing security protection configurations is only done once and will automatically be applied to all network locations as well as in the cloud where company data is placed. This makes it easier for the corporate security team to deploy DLP when the company needs to add new users, or when they open new branch offices.

This solution is claimed Palo Alto Networks has a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) than complex legacy DLP products, thanks to a simple policy engine that supports integration natively to existing control points in the company, such as Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls, VM-Series, Prisma® Access, Prisma Cloud, and Prisma SaaS. 

Palo Alto Networks Enterprise DLP is capable of detecting sensitive content through machine-learning-based data classification as well as from studying data patterns across over 500 existing network industry-defined data identifiers.

Palo Alto Networks Enterprise DLP supports enterprises in these four ways:

Visibility : Find sensitive data, detect and resolve problems in business processes. For example, when the HR department (Human Resources) suddenly sends unencrypted data to an external vendor that should not be accepted.

Notifications : Send alerts to users when a violation occurs, so that they are more aware of the policies set in the company. For example, when a user sends credit card data (payment card), a warning will appear immediately.

Education : Application of targeted training; for example, identifying who has repeatedly committed a violation, then providing examples of how they do not carelessly upload the proprietary source code to third party websites.

Protection : Automates data protection and response actions for any security incidents that occur, for example when an incident causes sensitive files to be exposed in cloud storage, they will be immediately quarantined so that they cannot be accessed by the public.
