Today, you have two options for managing your Prisma Access deployment: Panorama and Cloud Management. Over the past year, we have developed many new features in Cloud Management that not only provide functional parity with Panorama for Prisma Access management but also offer many new capabilities that can only be delivered in the cloud.
For existing customers wishing to switch from Panorama to Cloud Management, we have an in-product workflow that can be used to migrate your Prisma Access configuration. While this migration workflow is disabled by default, you can reach out to your account teams to enable this feature and begin the migration to Cloud Management. Know that during this migration there is zero impact to your Prisma Access deployment and that you may continue using Panorama for NGFW management.
Why move to Cloud Management:
Continuous best practice assessments
Secure default configurations
ML-based configuration optimization
Simplified web security workflow
Comprehensive and actionable visualizations
Intuitive workflows for complex tasks
Simple and secure management APIs
Cloud-native architecture provides scalability, resilience, and global reach
No hardware to manage or software to maintain
ISO 27001 and SOC2 Type II certified
Monthly releases of new features and improvements
Faster problem identification and resolution

We upgraded the Prisma Access Cloud Management yesterday and have a fantastic set of new features:
Easy M365 Enablement: Built-in security and decryption rules, as well as a guided walkthrough, mean you can safely enable M365 in just a few clicks GlobalProtect App Versions: You can now choose the version of the GlobalProtect app you want to make available for your mobile users. Config Load: In addition to restoring an earlier config version, you can now also load an earlier conversion. This builds on the ability to revert configuration that was released in May. Security Rule Schedules: By default, security policy rules are always in effect (all dates and times). To limit a security rule to specific times, you can define schedules, and then apply them to the appropriate rules
