Over the past several months, customers have been asking for the ability to run a Best Practice Assessment (BPA) more frequently, on their schedule, and in their own environment. We are happy to share that we have been able to do all of this without sacrificing any of the features that customers love. On November 14th, we will be launching the Self-Service BPA on the Customer Support Portal.

What is a BPA?

The BPA compares your policy configurations against Palo Alto Networks best practices, producing a curated set of recommendations to improve your next-generation firewall and Panorama™ network security.  The BPA is great for building configuration confidence in your controls and for measuring progress along the way, and with the ability to run assessments on demand, you can track the adoption of core prevention capabilities like App-ID, User-ID, and Decryption. The Self-Service BPA will allow customers to access the BPA on their own from the Customer Support Portal. While customers will still be able to work through their account team or partner to run a BPA,  they will now have the option to generate their report independently.

Ready to get started? Join our live expert led Self-Service BPA Workshop and learn how to run an assessment in your environment.

APAC –  November 15th  @ 11 AM SGT

Unit 42 Report - Ransomware: Unlocking the Lucrative Criminal Business Model
Ransomware, specifically cryptographic ransomware, has quickly become one of the greatest cyber threats facing organizations around the world. This criminal business model has proven to be highly effective in generating revenue for cyber criminals in addition to causing significant operational impact to affected organizations. It is largely victim agnostic, spanning across the globe and affecting all major industry verticals. Small organizations, large enterprises, individual home users – everyone is a potential target. Ransomware has existed in various forms for decades, but in the last several years criminals have perfected the key components of these attacks. This has led to an explosion of new malware families and has drawn new actors into participating in these lucrative schemes.
