Palo Alto Networks just launched a version of its SASE offering that helps managed service providers better automate and customize environments for hybrid workforces.

Palo Alto rolled out Prisma SASE in 2021, bringing together its Access and SD-WAN platforms. Now Palo Alto has added a hierarchical multitenant cloud management portal, in addition to an open API framework. According to the company, newly instated role-based access control (RBAC) lets MSPs flexibly handle different customer requirements.

“MSPs need to deliver consistent, best-in-class secure access solutions for hybrid workforce and SD-WAN services to customers at the lowest possible TCO. Until now, that has been extraordinarily difficult,” said Anand Oswal, Palo Alto’s senior vice president of network security. “With Prisma SASE for MSPs, we are able to further deliver on the promise of a secure enterprise with ultimate ease of use, for both our managed service provider partners and their customers, and most importantly help address their unique network security and SD-WAN requirements.”

We recently compiled a list of 20 top SD-WAN providers offering products and services via channel partners.

Secure access service edge (SASE) brings together advanced security and networking capabilities into an integrated, cloud-based platform.

AT&T-Palo Alto

AT&T last year announced a SASE partnership with Palo Alto last year.

“The new Prisma SASE MSP solution will help AT&T to further accelerate and scale SASE deployments as we provide ongoing expertise and support to customers,” said Danessa Lambdin, vice president of AT&T Cybersecurity.

Prisma’s API framework lets service providers quickly integrate it with their backend infrastructure. It also uses identity and access management (IAM).

Palo Alto in 2020 spent $420 million to acquire pure-play SD-WAN vendor CloudGenix.

Palo Alto and other vendors are attending Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
