CloudKeySM is built on industry-leading technology, like Palo Alto’s Firewalls and Edge Security
CloudKeySM is the culmination of years of hard work from experts in the IT field. The humble beginning of helping others set up affordable networks has evolved over time into establishing the premier cloud platform for your business.
The CloudKeySM platform is designed to bring all the services that an organization needs, made from cutting-edge components that represent the standout performers in their respective fields. The cherry on top is an affordable price that stacks up against the competition while remaining a premium, bespoke service provider.
CloudKeySM relies on Palo Alto Next-Generation Firewalls
Palo Alto has been recognized by Gartner as a Leader in Network Firewalls ten times in a row now for its high execution and endeavors towards the future. They state “Our vision is a world where each day is safer and more secure than the one before” and they consistently deliver on their vision by helping other companies maintain high levels of network security.
Palo Alto achieves this through several measures. By going beyond traditional intrusion protection services, or IPS, they can further prevent all known threats across all traffic in a single pass. Additionally, they utilize machine learning analysis to protect against modern forms of malware, as well as predictive analytics to disrupt DNS attacks. They also help to identify and protect all unmanaged IoT and OT devices through a ML-based, sans-signature approach.
The Next-Generation Firewalls provided by Palo Alto use deep learning (a subset of traditional machine learning) to help go beyond structured data analysis of ML and analyze more at a higher level of cognition. This also extends to the machine-learning-powered visibility that exists across IoT and other connected devices. Their technology means they can quickly and accurately profile any IoT device to reveal its type, vendor, model, firmware, and more, while using cloud scale to compare device usage, validate profiles, and fine-tune models so devices don’t go unmanaged.
These factors play into how CloudKeySM can further help organizations with their cloud and IT needs. The advantages of Palo Alto’s NGFWs go further by having zero-delay signatures that provide an update in seconds, ensuring that the first user to see a threat is the only user to see that threat. CloudKeySM uses Palo Alto because of their ability to maximize security and minimize downtime, through AIOps delivering high ROI. These advantages are then passed on to the customer that utilizes CloudKeySM for their purposes.
Edge Security is of Growing Importance
For many in the IT world, there has been an increased understanding of the importance of edge computing and edge security. So much data has moved away from being processed solely at a data center, creating newer arenas for security to handle. This means that every organization’s network perimeter has become a target of multi-stage and multi-vector attacks that require layered security solutions. Some measures include IPS, malicious URL databases, malware prevention, and more from different vendors on their network edge.
Network security teams must combat these threats using innovative and concrete tools at their disposal to protect against these types of attacks. The tools must provide visibility into all traffic, offer consistency, and work in tandem to strengthen the internet edge. The CloudKey Platform uses Palo Alto to stop evasive threats, malware, and malicious URLs to exploit, all while securing the DNS channel as well against attacks.
CloudKeySM is Stacked to Provide the Best Platform Around
The sheer plethora of IT organizations out there can make it difficult to cut through the noise; however, Palo Alto stands out among the rest as a reliable and innovative company. Their NGFWs help to keep their customers safe, and this safety is passed on to our customers through CloudKeySM.
