Palo Alto Networks has announced the general availability of the enterprise edition of its Okyo Garde offering to extend its SASE capabilities to employees working remotely.
The subscription-based service includes Prima Access and a Wi-Fi 6 router. The solution is controlled through a mobile app, which allows at-home employees to create separate private and personal networks.
"The benefits for working remotely also come with the shared responsibility between employees and employers for protecting networks, as at-home use of personal devices, email and social media accounts increase the risk of cyberattacks on the enterprise," said Kumar Ramachandran, senior VP of products at Palo Alto Networks.
Okyo Garde Enterprise Edition also gives SOC/IT visibility and control over the in-home corporate network while ensuring personal network activity is not visible to IT admins.
The offering also allows users to protect unmanaged work devices at home, such as printers, VoIP phones and hardware prototypes.
The offering is now available in the US and Canada via Palo Alto Networks and Palo Alto Networks NextWave partners.
