Choosing between Prisma and cloud-managed modes for Prisma Access depends on various factors, including your organization's specific requirements, preferences, and existing infrastructure. Here are some considerations for each mode:

  1. Prisma Managed:

    • Centralized Management: Prisma Managed offers a centralized management approach, allowing you to control and monitor your security policies from a single interface.
    • Consistency: It provides consistent policy enforcement across your organization, ensuring that security configurations are uniform.
  2. Cloud Managed:

    • Flexibility: Cloud-managed mode offers more flexibility, as it allows individual business units or departments to have control over their policies. This can be beneficial for organizations with diverse needs.
    • Local Autonomy: Business units or departments can have autonomy in managing their security policies, which might be important for certain use cases.

When making a decision, consider the following factors:

  • Organizational Structure: If your organization has a centralized IT structure and requires consistent security policies across the board, Prisma Managed might be a better fit. If there's a need for flexibility and autonomy in policy management, cloud management could be more suitable.

  • Security Policies: Evaluate the complexity and uniformity of your security policies. If they are similar across different units, Prisma Managed might simplify management. If there are diverse security requirements, cloud management can offer more granular control.

  • Scalability: Consider the scalability requirements of your organization. Prisma Managed might be more straightforward for scaling in a uniform manner, while Cloud Managed allows for more granular scalability based on specific needs.

  • Integration with Existing Systems: Check how well each mode integrates with your existing systems and workflows.
