Sensitive and Critical business data needs to be protected with the right security strategies so that they don’t be a victim of the cyber breaches happening every day.
The Company was using traditional UTM Gateway while they use their internal applications for research and development purposes. The security team found that behind traditional security appliances they were using that was only providing basic security and there were questions on the reporting and network visibility.
Daily arising threats in the modern data era were not covered as there was no zero protection available with traditional security appliances they were using. The scalability of the existing security appliance was limited and observed high during peak hours.
While migrating from the traditional firewall to NGFW by Palalto, Key area was making all the important applications to start working properly. Disabling proxy in all branches with MPLS router to HO for the internet and captive portal for all users should work and get user base URL filtering policy. There was a need to give insights and details on new and enhanced technology like PA NGFW, how it works and its operations.
Convincing and making them understand the technical and Management team of the company was not easy, we had to give details about how NGFW is better than traditional layered security products. We mutually agreed on the showcasing actual POC of the solution for almost 30 days. Our objective was to make the security architecture against emerging threats and make the network more resistant for Cyber-attacks.
To resolve the issues while they were using traditional security appliance, we demonstrated them the power of NGFW by placing in TAP mode and gave complete visibility across their Network.
Reports generated of all the threats, malwares and CnC Activities along with the applications traversed through their network and how they by passed their traditional firewall.
