NETSCOUT SYSTEMS has integrated Omnis Cyber Intelligence (OCI), the central console for its network detection and response solution, with Palo Alto Networks Panorama management platform to centrally manage all form factors of Palo Alto Networks market-leading MLPowered Next-Generation Firewalls. 

Tom Raimondi, chief marketing officer, NETSCOUT commented, “By integrating the actionable, packet-based, and highly scalable, end-to-end visibility technology of NETSCOUT OCI with the powerful threat response of Palo Alto Networks Panorama, we’re helping our joint customers reduce their security risks through better intelligence, efficiency, and speed. Our customers benefit from our measures to proactively improve their security posture.” 

This integration will give enterprise security operation teams end-to-end, scale-based visibility of packets, which is crucial for quickly and consistently blocking threats. 

Joint customers can also more easily resolve their network and security issues thanks to this partnership. Threat detection is streamlined, response times are sped up, and manual tasks are decreased through the integration of NETSCOUT OCI and Palo Alto Networks Panorama. 

NETSCOUT OCI provides visibility into network traffic and identifies Indicators of Compromise (IoCs) early in the attack lifecycle or retrospectively through investigation of packets and layer 2-7 metadata by leveraging Omnis CyberStream scalable deep packet inspection (DPI) and patented Adaptive Service Intelligence (ASI) technology. 

This data is sent to Palo Alto Networks Panorama, a platform for network security management that provides features for policy creation and centralized management so that Palo Alto Networks firewalls can be provisioned centrally and can react quickly to security incidents.
