Prisma Cloud got better ! Find out what Prisma Cloud 2.0 can do for you !

Prisma Cloud is a cloud security posture management (CSPM) and cloud workload protection platform (CWPP) that provides comprehensive visibility and threat detection across your organization’s hybrid, multi-cloud infrastructure.  And guess what ... it just got better!!


Palo Alto Networks launched the Cloud Native Security Platform a year ago. Prisma Cloud 2.0 is the industry’s only comprehensive Cloud Native Security Platform and is designed to secure multi- and hybrid-cloud environments and cloud native applications, integrating security across the full DevOps lifecycle.


The release of Prisma Cloud 2.0 introduces several new functionality modules and further platform alignment with key customer needs. 


  • Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) leverages data from public cloud service providers to deliver continuous visibility, compliance and threat detection, as well as shift-left capabilities to scan infrastructure-as-code (IaC) templates across the application lifecycle.
  • Cloud Workload Protection (CWPP) secures cloud native applications across the application lifecycle, defined by the requirement to protect hosts (VMs), containers and serverless from a single console.
  • Cloud Network Security (CNS) protects cloud networks and applications, combining network visibility and microsegmentation for full-stack network security across multi- and hybrid-clouds.
  • Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM) enables visibility and control over cloud identities to ensure least-privileged user access governing cloud resources, compute and data.

New Modules Within Prisma Cloud 2.0


  • Prisma Cloud Data Security reduces the burden of managing cloud data by leveraging the Enterprise DLP engine to help discover and protect sensitive data stored across public cloud environments. It also integrates the industry-leading WildFire service to detect known and unknown malware that may have infiltrated any Amazon Web Service Simple Storage Service (AWS S3) buckets.
  • Web Application and API Security protects applications against the OWASP Top 10, secures APIs from application-layer attacks, implements file upload protection and more. All from a single, integrated dashboard.
  • This release brings the integration of Aporeto technology in our Identity-Based Microsegmentation module.


    Identity-Based Microsegmentation provides end-to-end visibility of network communications for network and cloud security teams, along with comprehensive security policy control and management. The module will enter Live Preview in the coming weeks, and will be available to a subset of Prisma Cloud Enterprise Edition customers.
  • The new IAM Security module offers visibility into effective permissions and user activity, helps implement governance over excessive or unused permissions and responds to least-privilege issues with recommendations or automated remediation. 



The Why?

Today’s enterprises are rapidly moving to the cloud and expanding their cloud application footprints. As development and DevOps teams aim to release software more quickly—to improve the business value for internal and external stakeholders and customers—they are leveraging cloud native architectures and tools to empower this effort.


At the same time, security teams want to ensure they have the deepest and broadest security capabilities available to secure clouds, data, applications, and networks.
