Palo Alto Networks offers a full line of advanced web firewall-gateway appliances that range from the PA-200, designed for enterprise remote offices, to the PA-7050, which is a modular chassis designed for high-speed datacenters.
Palo Alto Networks’ platform architecture is based on a single-pass software engine and uses function-specific processing for networking, security, threat prevention, and management to deliver predictable performance. SafeNet Enterprise hardware security module (HSM) integrates with Palo Alto Networks firewalls to provide the logical and physical protection of the keys used in SSL/TLS encryption.
Thales Luna Network HSMs are the choice for enterprises requiring strong cryptographic security for paper-to-digital initiatives, digital signatures, DNSSEC, hardware key storage, transactional acceleration, certificate signing, code or document signing, bulk key generation, data encryption, and more.
Thales’ SafeNet Trusted Access (STA) enforces a broad range of authentication methods at the access point while the Palo Alto Networks NGFW inspects traffic, enforces network security policies, and delivers threat prevention, enabling organizations to achieve Zero Trust network security.
With the strong multi-factor authentication (MFA) offered by STA, weak passwords are replaced by strong, adaptive authentication to add a security layer that validates users and logs their access attempts for audit purposes.
Thales’s SafeNet Authentication Client (SAC) is a public key infrastructure (PKI) middleware that provides a secure method for exchanging information based on public key cryptography, enabling trusted third-party verification of user identities. It utilizes a system of digital certificates, certificate authorities, and other registration authorities that verify and authenticate the validity of each party involved in an Internet transaction.
