Palo Alto Networks on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Always-on, scalable security from Palo Alto Networks

Palo Alto Networks solutions on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) deliver cloud workload security to organizations seeking protection of east-west and north-south network traffic flows and granular visibility across multicloud and hybrid deployments.

The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Palo Alto Networks partnership offers multiple products to solve a variety of use cases. VM-Series next-generation firewall on OCI is a virtual security appliance that helps to secure your workload migration to the cloud. VM-Series inspects all application traffic, providing Layer 7 visibility and security capabilities including intrusion prevention service, malware prevention, URL filtering, DNS security, and more, and delivering firewall throughput of up to 13.1 Gb/sec in a single virtual appliance. VM-Series offers inline machine learning to stop threats and integrates with OCI automation tools—ensuring rapid security deployment without reducing cloud agility. Centralized management enables you to deploy VM-Series firewalls anywhere while maintaining consistent security across clouds.

Prisma Cloud by Palo Alto Networks
Prisma Cloud by Palo Alto Networks, an additional OCI-compatible solution, is a comprehensive cloud native security platform that provides security teams with multicloud and hybrid visibility for all cloud assets, including OCI and other major cloud providers, in a single console. Prisma Cloud enables immediate enforcement of configuration guardrails, with more than 40 built-in policies across OCI services to assess misconfigurations, check your OCI environment against compliance standards—including integrated support for the CIS OCI Foundations Benchmark—and catch threats with machine learning and intelligence-driven threat detection.

Visibility and control

Protect workloads deployed on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure through granular visibility and precise control of applications.

Centralized management for consistent security

Deploy security anywhere, and leverage centralized management for consistent policy, logging, and monitoring across on-premises, private and public clouds, and branch locations.

Automated security

Manage security with familiar automation and configuration management tools to ensure rapid deployment and eliminate security-induced bottlenecks that slow application development.

Featured use case: Secure application workloads with Palo Alto Networks VM-Series firewall

Businesses can protect Oracle applications, such as Oracle E-Business Suite and PeopleSoft, deployed in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure using Palo Alto Networks VM-Series next-generation firewalls. To protect these traffic flows, Palo Alto Networks recommends segmenting the network using a hub and spoke topology, in which traffic is routed through a central hub and is connected to multiple distinct networks (spokes). All traffic between spokes, whether to and from the internet, to and from on-premises, or to the Oracle Services Network, is routed through the hub and inspected with Palo Alto Networks VM-Series firewall’s multilayered threat prevention technologies.

Palo Alto Networks and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Understanding the threat landscape and reducing risk in the public cloud can be challenging, especially in highly dynamic environments. While native Oracle Cloud features establish the robust security of the platform, Palo Alto Networks solutions—deployable directly from Oracle Cloud Marketplace—complement these controls and further reduce risk without sacrificing cloud agility. With VM-Series, you can extend on-premises security to OCI, gain application layer traffic visibility, prevent known and unknown threats, and stop data exfiltration. Prisma Cloud offers visibility and control across cloud assets and helps you maintain OCI configuration hygiene and compliance. Use Prisma Cloud to integrate security into CI/CD pipelines and the full application lifecycle.
