Guardicore Centra Security Platform vs. Palto Alto Prisma
Guardicore Advantages over Palo Alto Networks Prisma Cloud
WE PROVIDE COMPLETE VISIBILITY
Guardicore builds and displays an end-to-end map with both real-time and historical information. Prisma Cloud’s mapping capabilities are limited and do not assist with segmentation policy creation.
WE PROVIDE FLEXIBLE LABELING
Guardicore’s integration with orchestration tools streamlines labeling based on your specific needs, supporting innovation and aligning seamlessly with modern DevOps processes.
WE REDUCE RISK FASTER
Prisma Cloud features a whitelist-only model Guardicore supports a flexible whitelist and blacklist model. This means faster risk reduction with fewer required rules.
WE DESIGNED FOR ENTERPRISE SCALE
Prisma Cloud’s two-tier architecture is 100% reliant on agents for visibility and is limited in its deployment flexibility and ability to collect, store, and analyze data at scale than Guardicore’s three-tier architecture.
WE OFFER ALL-IN-ONE PROTECTION
Breach detection is an integral component of the Guardicore solution, including deception, reputation, and a threat intelligence firewall. Prisma Cloud’s feature set is limited in scope.
WE SIMPLIFY AND ACCELERATE SEGMENTATION
Guardicores templates and AI-based segmentation allows customers to create and manage effective policies in just a few clicks. Prisma Cloud’s time-to-policy is significantly slower.
