A long-standing collaboration between two global cybersecurity experts, Thales and Palo Alto Networks, is designed to support widespread cloud migration, enabling organizations to deploy zero-trust security systems at scale. The companies have identified a pressing need and announced three new integrations.

As organizations continue their digital transformation and move more workloads, networks, and security frameworks to the cloud, pressure is mounting on businesses to deploy robust security solutions to secure their networks.

Enterprise-level cloud transformation is happening rapidly to support an increasingly hybrid work world. In line with this shift, the companies say businesses must secure distributed IT environments without a defined physical security perimeter.

Thales and Palo Alto Networks Introduce New Zero Trust Integrations

According to Thales and Palo Alto Networks, three technology integrations allow companies to access internal resources within a highly resilient security architecture.

The companies say that the combination of identity-aware contextual access controls and multi-factor authentication systems will enable secure cloud transformation while supporting remote workforces, enabling employees to securely access any resource, anywhere, on any device.

The integrations minimize the threat of data breaches through identity compromise by implementing strong, adaptive authentication at the network edge and providing automated recovery workflows in an untrusted access event.

By integrating Thales SafeNet Trusted Access with Palo Alto Networks Prisma Access, GlobalProtect, ML-Powered Next Generation Firewalls, and Cortex XSOAR technologies, companies can implement a zero trust model across a range of solutions.

Organizations will benefit from secure and adaptive multi-factor authentication, access control for edge solutions, network security policies, incident response, and threat intelligence management.

Tana Rosenblatt, VP of Technology Partnerships at Palo Alto Networks, said: “Thales has partnered with us to help clients with their digital transformation, and in partnership, we are well prepared to offer a zero trust approach with authentication, SOC Security, and ZTNA Solutions.

“With these integrations, businesses can seamlessly secure access to hybrid and cloud environments, detect suspicious account activity, automatically trigger alerts, and enforce stronger access policies in real-time.”

Rosenblatt continued, “The business threat landscape is rapidly evolving, increasing the scale and complexity of the risks many of our customers face.

“As organizations move their network security to the cloud, it becomes more difficult to implement holistic security controls. We are excited to work with Palo Alto Networks and provide organizations with a clear path to identity-aware zero trust security.”

Thales VP of access control products Francois Lasnier says: “By applying and enforcing adaptive and multi-factor authentication at the network edge, and responding to and stopping untrusted access events in real-time, Thales and Palo Alto Networks ensure ensures that organizations can successfully and safely take the step to the cloud.”

Thales and Palo Alto Networks security solutions are now available for companies looking to integrate depzero-trustrust frameworks across their networks.
