Palo Alto Networks is proud to announce the availability of our VM-Series virtual next-generation firewalls on Oracle Cloud Marketplace. Oracle Cloud customers can now leverage VM-Series virtual firewalls to prevent advanced threats from penetrating the perimeter of their OCI environment, segment their cloud workloads, and improve visibility into their mission-critical applications, such as Oracle E-Business Suite applications, PeopleSoft, Hyperion, and JD Edwards, as they migrate to Oracle Cloud. The VM-Series in Oracle Cloud supports the Bring Your Own License (BYOL) model, making it easy to acquire.
The Palo Alto Networks VM-Series firewall is the virtualized form factor of the industry-leading Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation firewall. VM-Series virtual firewalls can be deployed in a range of private and public cloud computing environments to prevent inbound threats, stop data exfiltration, and prevent lateral movement attacks. The VM-Series on Oracle Cloud natively analyzes all network traffic in a single pass to determine application, content and user identity. The application, content, and user context are used as core elements of your network security policy and for visibility, reporting, and incident investigation. The advanced security services available on VM-Series virtual firewalls provide best-in-breed threat protection, to secure your critical applications from both known and unknown threats, including zero-day attacks.
As you move your applications and data to Oracle Cloud, the VM-Series firewall on Oracle Cloud enables you to maintain a consistent network security posture between your Oracle Cloud environment, other public cloud environments you may use, and your on-prem or private cloud environments. Network security practitioners can manage their network security posture across all of these infrastructures from a single management console.
VM-Series on Oracle Cloud also supports the resilient firewall design of deploying two firewalls in a stateful highly available Active-Passive configuration. In a high availability configuration, a pair of firewalls share configuration and state information that allows the second firewall to take over for the first when a failure occurs, enabling seamless failover. You can also implement resiliency on Oracle Cloud for firewall-protected inbound traffic by deploying a pool of VM-Series virtual firewalls behind an external load balancer.
