Skyhigh Networks, a Cupertino, California-based cloud security software provider, has integrated with network security company Palo Alto Networks (PANW) to provide data visibility, security and governance capabilities for software-as-a-service-based (SaaS-based) applications operating within the public cloud.
The new integration is designed to deliver enhanced cloud security capabilities and enables Skyhigh customers to leverage Palo Alto Networks’ firewall technology.
“We are a very customer-centric company, and the impetus for the integration was demand from our joint customers,” a Skyhigh spokesperson told MSPmentor. “The integration enables enterprises to realize additional value from their Palo Alto Networks’ next-generation firewall technology.”
The Analyze solution helps enterprises identify security breaches and insider threats and analyze usage patterns to understand demand for cloud services, according to Skyhigh. Discover, meanwhile, allows users to better understand the business, data and legal risks of each service.
Skyhigh noted the integration’s Analyze and Discover risk-based policies are enforced by Palo Alto Networks’ enterprise security platform to give users greater control over more than 7,000 cloud applications.
“We are committed to ensuring that our customers are able to leverage their existing investments in firewalls to manage security policies across 7,000+ cloud applications,” Chris Cesio, Skyhigh’s vice president of business development and alliances, said in a prepared statement. “We are excited to align with Palo Alto Networks to combine the power of market-leading next-generation firewalls with Skyhigh’s ground-breaking cloud access security broker capabilities for the benefit of our mutual customers.”
What does the new integration offer enterprises?
Skyhigh said enterprises can use the new integration to:
Access detailed cloud application usage metrics
Discover all SaaS traffic
Enforce course and granular access control policies
Extend data loss prevention policies to cloud applications and enable a broad range of remediation actions
Identify anomalous behavior indicative of a security breach or insider threat within SaaS-based cloud environments
Oversee SaaS application policy updates
The cloud security software company also noted the integration with Palo Alto Networks provides enterprises with immediate visibility and control over their cloud services.
