Organizations are rapidly embracing multi-cloud architectures that span software-defined data centers (private clouds) and public cloud environments. To help organizations protect their cloud-based applications and data from cyberattacks, PAN-OS® 8.0 expands the VM-Series with new models and optimized performance, making it the broadest, most powerful line of virtualized firewall appliances on the market. New scalability and resiliency features for Microsoft® Azure® and Amazon® Web Services enable organizations to build secure cloud-centric architectures. Workflow automation features for VMware® NSX® and KVM with OpenStack® help streamline VM-Series deployments.
Auto Scaling the VM-Series on AWS
This lightboard offers a brief architectural overview and demonstration of how the VM-Series integration with AWS® Auto Scaling works.
VM-Series Scalability and Resiliency on Microsoft Azure
Watch the lightboard and demo to learn how VM-Series integration with Microsoft Azure Application Gateway and Load Balancer enables cloud-centric architectures that are scalable and resilient.
Automated Quarantine With VM-Series for VMware NSX
The VM‐Series firewall dynamically tags guest VMs with NSX security tags to enable the immediate isolation of compromised or infected guests. By leveraging threat, antivirus and malware detection logs on the VM‐Series virtualized firewall, NSX can place guests in a quarantined security group to prevent the lateral movement of the threat in the software-defined data center environment.
Automated Provisioning and Customization of VM-Series for OpenStack
PAN-OS 8.0 introduces new automation integration with OpenStack ConfigDrive, allowing organizations to dynamically provision and customize firewall deployments as network function virtualization (NFV) security components in fully virtualized data centers and service provider environments.
