Auto-mapping of zone to segments:

Alkira’s Palo Alto integration allows enterprises to extend existing zones on their firewalls into and across clouds. There’s no need for security teams to painstakingly deploy Palo Alto firewalls within each cloud provider.
Alkira takes existing on-prem security and expands it to multiple clouds.

Seamless integration:

Alkira and Palo Alto are seamlessly integrated, accelerating time to value and enabling one-click provisioning and real-time autoscaling of security across public, private, hybrid, and multi-cloud environments.


Customers can automatically scale Palo Alto firewalls when traffic surges and then reduce them when traffic normalizes. This reduces the likelihood of network outages.
