Overview

Professional Services is releasing an integration for deploying and managing Software NGFWs on Microsoft Azure with HashiCorp Terraform. Terraform is a popular open source tool for creating automating cloud infrastructure across public cloud providers. With this release, Palo Alto Networks' customers can manage their security infrastructure using the same technology they use to manage the rest of their cloud infrastructure.

 

Growth Towards The Cloud

Modern virtualized and cloud infrastructures bear little resemblance to traditional data centers designed for predictable levels of computing, storage, and networking resources. Cloud requirements change rapidly, sometimes by the hour. Further, 94% of organizations use more than one cloud platform. The industry has rallied around HashiCorp Terraform for safe and predictable multi-cloud infrastructure automation. 

 

Easy Integration

VM-Series customers can now automate the deployment of their security infrastructure as they scale their Azure cloud infrastructure. The open source Azure Terraform modules provide easy integration into customer’s existing DevOps processes. There is no new technology to adopt or buy. This production quality software has been used to deliver cloud projects with dozens of VM-Series customers.
