Application Security Partner Program
Most enterprises deploy security products from multiple vendors that do not interact with each other. This increases operational costs and security risks. Solving security challenges requires an open and collaborative approach to detecting threats and reducing risk. This must be done in a cost-effective manner that does not put the whole burden on you.
Palo Alto Networks works closely with Application Providers to ensure that App-IDs are created for widely deployed applications, and subsequently kept accurate as applications are updated. Collaboration with Application Providers on App-ID development allows mutual customers to safely enable applications that traverse Palo Alto Networks' next-generation firewall. It also minimizes the potential impact of application upgrades on firewall rules in cases where there is a change in the underlying communication framework of an application.
Benefits To Joint Customers
- Increased network security: The risk of coming across unidentified traffic on the network is lowered as more applications get covered by App-IDs.
- Simplification of firewall administration: The use of App-ID instead of IP address, port and protocol simplifies the management of firewall security rules for network security administrators.
- Ease of updating applications: App-IDs ensure continuous, undisrupted access to authorized users even when applications are updated. This also applies to many SaaS based offerings even when the service switches to a different IP subnet range.
