Nile, Palo Alto Partner to Strengthen Enterprise Campus Security

Nile, a global leader in enterprise network as a service (NaaS), today announces an integration with Palo Alto Networks, a global leader in cybersecurity.

With the integration, joint customers can benefit from an integrated solution that brings together Nile Access Service for enterprise campus (NaaS) and Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs).

Globally, organizations will spend $262 billion in cybersecurity by 2026, reflecting a constant-currency compound annual growth rate of 11 percent from 2021. Although companies are spending more on cybersecurity tools, cyber-attacks are still occurring at a staggering rate of more than 2,200 attacks a day.

“Securing networks against this constant rise in cyber-attacks has never been more difficult,” said Pankaj Patel, co-founder and CEO of Nile. “The industry has left organizations with an immense burden; navigating through complex technologies and processes to try and protect against this ever-rising tide of attacks. Our technical integration with Palo Alto Networks builds on our relentless mission to deliver secure connectivity – simply – through a NaaS-based model that reduces risk, while also removing many of the burdens industry has imposed on networking and security professionals.”

Key benefits from the Nile and Palo Alto Networks integration include:

  • Increased visibility – Out-of-the-box integration enables Palo Alto Networks NGFWs to see and inspect all traffic from the Nile Access Service, giving heightened visibility and rapid detection of attacks that might originate from within LAN/WLAN, eliminating a common blindspot for organizations.
  • Enhanced identity – Palo Alto Networks NGFWs with its User-ID technology can make informed policy enforcement decisions combined with Nile’s authentication approach, resulting in greater visibility into users and devices operating within the Nile Access Service.
  • Centralized policy management – Palo Alto Networks NGFWs can apply dynamic policies for traffic segmentation within the Nile Access Service, creating a centralized location for more simplified policy management and enforcement, and together, a powerful new combination that eliminates the potential for lateral movement of cyberattacks initiated within the LAN/WLAN.
