Palo Alto Networks Leads 2023 Gartner® for Single-Vendor SASE

Prisma SASE’s unified capabilities and autonomous digital experience management uniquely position it to address the market needs

Palo Alto Networks (NASDAQ: PANW), the global cybersecurity leader, announced that it has been recognized as the only Leader in the inaugural 2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Single-Vendor SASE (secure access service edge), with the highest and furthest placement for both ability to execute and completeness of vision.

“Gartner defines single-vendor SASE offerings as those that deliver multiple converged-network and security-as-a-service capabilities, such as software-defined WAN (SD-WAN), secure web gateway (SWG), cloud access security broker (CASB), network firewalling and Zero Trust network access (ZTNA). These offerings use a cloud-centric architecture and are delivered by one vendor.”

To date, other vendor offerings are incomplete, lacking needed capabilities and integrations. Palo Alto Networks is uniquely positioned in this space by delivering  Prisma® SASE as a unified solution providing these capabilities along with Autonomous Digital Experience Management (ADEM). It helps customers consolidate their fragmented security and networking infrastructure, and delivers consistent Zero Trust network security across all locations, applications, and users.

Anand Oswal, senior vice president of Products, Network Security, Palo Alto Networks, said:
“We believe this recognition is a testament to our foresight of the market need, which has led to this unique and credible position for Prisma SASE today. SASE is the convergence of wide area networking (WAN) and security delivered as a massively distributed cloud service. Our customers tell us that a unified approach to SASE is the right approach as it helps them secure their distributed workforce consistently and drive operational simplicity. It also unlocks the power of AI/ML at scale to deliver AI-powered security and helps organizations move from manual and reactive to predictive and proactive IT operations. That’s just not possible with a patchwork of point solutions.”

Ken Ogami, senior vice president and CIO U.S., Westfield North America, said:
“Prisma SASE with Zero Trust gave us the ability to secure our users regardless of their status, what device they’re using, or where they’re working from.”

Palo Alto Networks is also the only vendor named a Leader in both the Gartner SSE and Gartner SD-WAN Magic Quadrants. As organizations around the world adopt cloud and digitize their operations at an unprecedented pace, SASE has become a critical component of their transformation and ability to scale their business. The Gartner Magic Quadrant shares, “We are seeing increased interest in single-vendor SASE from organizations that want to simplify their branch technology stacks. It is particularly compelling for organizations making SD-WAN investments and extending the project to include firewalling, remote access and other security capabilities. This trend has expanded to SSE as well as many buyers will switch from a best-of-breed purchasing motion to a default position that a single vendor is preferred even if they aren’t best of breed in all areas.”

On Nov. 8-9, Palo Alto Networks will host the third annual SASE Converge, the industry’s premier event for SASE. The virtual event will feature technologists from across the industry and reveal how SASE powered by advanced AI/ML is helping customers meet the scale, complexity and speed of a highly distributed and cloud-first marketplace. Registration begins Sept. 13.
