Hi, what is the difference b/w Strata, Prisma & cortex, as Strata is only used for Enterprise solution? Prisma for cloud ? in official documentation Strata have also cloud solution then what's the function of Prisma? Strata included specific models of firewalls & Prisma included different models of firewall? How these above three types are divided on which bases.? & Cortex is used for operation what it means? Thanks

Strata, Cortex and Prisma are areas where you can find different PAN solutions.



Here you can find the solutions related to the Network Security Platform. So here are the Firewalls as Hardware, VM or CN and Panorama. 



Here we have some cloud services like Prisma Access, SaaS API Security or Prisma Cloud.



Solutions for the SOC like Cortex XDR, XSOAR, Xpanse and XSIAM.


Hope that helps,



Thanks for your feedback, in strata we have VM option is we cannot use this for cloud security solution?

You can use the VM-series to secure cloud workloads without issue if you design things properly. It's just a grouping for different products really. Strata covers their PAN-OS products where Prisma focuses on their cloud native solutions (IE: SaaS).
