Palo Alto Networks announced that Oracle selected the Palo Alto Networks VM-Series Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) as the technology to power the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Network Firewall. The new OCI Network Firewall, a natively integrated offering, joins the Palo Alto VM-Series Next-Generation Firewall. Palo Alto Networks and Oracle collaborate to offer customers the solutions they require to secure their cloud adoption journey.
Enterprise customers who develop new applications or migrate existing Oracle applications to OCI require best-in-class security to help prevent new threats and breaches. Palo Alto and Oracle have been addressing the need for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure customers since 2019.
Lee Klarich, chief product officer, of Palo Alto Networks commented, “Oracle has made security foundational and built-in for OCI customers to help them address regulatory compliance requirements, stop security threats and concerns, and prevent security-related outages. As Oracle is expanding its cloud security capabilities to provide multiple layers of defense to help identify and defeat emerging threats and security violations quickly, we are incredibly proud that they have chosen Palo Alto Networks technology to power these new capabilities.”
The OCI Network Firewall is a cloud-native firewall service that extends best-in-class NGFW capabilities to protect OCI workloads and aids in providing centralized cyberattack protection across OCI. Customers can use it to activate and secure their applications and cloud environment with firewall features, as well as can scale their security across their cloud deployment.
Clay Magouyrk, executive vice president, of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure stated, “Our enterprise customers are confronted with an ever-changing threat landscape and the complexities that come with it. Therefore, we’re intently focused on providing our customers with a comprehensive set of cloud security services that are easy to deploy and built in. Teaming up with Palo Alto Networks to provide our customers with next-generation firewall security is going to make it even easier for enterprises to identify potential vulnerabilities.”
