GlobalProtect, Working from Home, Prisma Access and Covid-19

To all, 

Just wanted to post a message about the Hot Topic right now, which is Covid-19. 

With all of this going around, everybody's health and safely is the utmost concern. Keeping your hands clean, washing your hands (A LOT), using hand sanitizers, and stop touching your face (I see you doing it now).

 

One of the things that is happening all over the place is telecommuting. Just like being safe in the real world, a VPN is a necessity when doing your work online. Palo Alto Networks has a couple of products that can help keep you secure online, which are GlobalProtect and Prisma Access.

 

GlobalProtect is the built-in VPN solution for our Strata (firewall) suite.

Prisma Access is our globally distributed cloud service that can automatically scale when your need increases. 

One of the advantages of using Prisma Access is that you do not need to deploy any new hardware to expand your capacity.

 

For GlobalProtect, our sales staff is available is to help your need for more hardware capacity.

For Prisma Access, we are offering free accelerated deployment and on-boarding of remote users.

Also, for any existing Prisma Access customers, we will be giving additional capacity to address increased usage at no additional cost for 90 days.

 

This is meant as a reminder for everyone that we have products to keep you secure.

Please send an email if you have any questions about increasing capacity to the following address:

rapid-response@paloaltonetworks.com
