Many Silver Peak SD-WAN customers have adopted Palo Alto Prisma Access cloud-delivered security services. You might be wondering how you can make Silver Peak and Palo Alto work together to take advantage of secure local Internet breakout from your branch or remotes sites to maintain both the performance and security of your business applications.
The Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect™ SD-WAN edge platform integration with Palo Alto Networks’ Prisma Access cloud-delivered security enables enterprises to shift to a secure access service edge (SASE) solution. The joint solution can be deployed via two different integration methods, both centrally managed within the Silver Peak Unity Orchestrator™ management console. I will use the analogy of the red or blue pill from the movie The Matrix: “Do you want the red pill or the blue pill?” The choice is yours, either will work, but each is meant to enable a different type of deployment. In this blog, I will discuss both integration methods, how they work and when to choose each option. I’ll also provide a link to a technical video that demonstrates both deployment methods.
