Palo Alto Networks VM-Series firewall now available on NetScaler SDX Platform

PALO ALTO NETWORKS: Technology Partner Solution Brief VM-Series for Citrix NetScaler SDX SOLUTION OVERVIEW The Palo Alto Networks Technology ® Partner Program includes a select group of partners that deliver solutions or products that interoperate with the next-generation firewall. HIGHLIGHTS Easy deployment of next-generation security to safely enable applications, and protect against known and unknown threats. n n n Minimize turn up times, and flexibly add capacity to accommodate the security and application delivery controller needs of new applications or new tenants (business units, application owners, service provider customers) Deploy dedicated ADC and security capabilities for applications or tenants. Business productivity hinges on providing the right users secure access to the right applications using any device and from any location. Effective and seamless delivery of applications requires addressing all aspects of application delivery—security, availability, performance and visibility—in a comprehensive manner. Each capability needs to be bestin-class, and the aggregate solution needs to exhibit the qualities and characteristics that define cloud architectures, including affordability, and elastic scalability. Citrix NetScaler SDX is a true service delivery networking platform for enterprise and cloud datacenters. An advanced virtualized architecture supports multiple NetScaler instances on a single hardware appliance, while an advanced control plane unifies provisioning, monitoring and management to meet the most demanding multi-tenant requirements. Instead of relying on “bolted” on capabilities or a collection of physical and virtual form factors that may compromise on features, performance and scalability, organizations can utilize the Citrix NetScaler SDX purpose-built platform for their datacenter service delivery needs. Now, with the addition of the VM-Series on Citrix NetScaler SDX, security and ADC services can be consolidated on a single hardware platform. This addresses the unique application needs for business units, application owners and SP customers in a multi-tenant deployment. The combination of VM-Series on Citrix NetScaler SDX also provides a complete, validated, security and ADC solution for Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop deployments. VM-Series on Citrix NetScaler SDX The VM-Series delivers safe application enablement using the same PAN-OS™ feature set that is available in physical security appliances. The core of the Citrix NetScaler SDX Platform VM-Series is the next-generation firewall which natively classifies all traffic, inclusive of applications, threats and content, then ties that traffic to the user, regardless of location or device type. The application, content, and user—in other words, the elements that run the business—are then used as the basis of an organization’s security policies, resulting in an improved security posture and a reduction in incident response time.

PALO ALTO NETWORKS: Technology Partner Solution Brief The VM-Series is based on a Single Pass software architecture to minimize latency. Operations such as application identification and decoding and signature matching for all threats and content, networking functions, and policy lookup, are executed once to optimize performance. The management and data plane are separated, with dedicated CPUs assigned to each plane to ensure that management access is always available, irrespective of traffic loads. By integrating the VM-Series on the Citrix NetScaler SDX platform, organizations can provide best-in-class ADC and security capabilities on an integrated, purpose-built platform to address the following use cases: Multi-Tenant Cloud Delivery In a cloud delivery model, each “tenant”—business unit, application owner or service provider customer—may have unique, independent security and ADC needs. VM-Series on Citrix NetScaler SDX can provide dedicated instances of security and ADC, and per application load balancing with dedicated firewalling. With the combined solution, organizations can achieve substantial infrastructure consolidation, reducing costs and complexity without compromising on functionality. Mutual support for an open XML API further facilitates the transformation to a cloud delivery model by enabling real-time orchestration of individual technologies and capabilities in response to changing conditions.

Consolidated Security and Availability for XenApp XenDesktop Deployments Substantial benefits can be realized by embracing desktop virtualization, from reducing cost of operations and desktop ownership to enabling greater business agility. Fully realizing these gains, however, depends on ensuring 100 percent uptime, providing adequate protection against threats and safely enabling appropriate access to applications for virtual desktop users. The combination of VM-Series on Citrix NetScaler SDX delivers consolidated security and availability for Citrix Xen App XenDesktop. This includes: On-premise applications • Secure remote access for virtual desktop users operating remotely • Zero Trust segmentation of the virtual desktop infrastructure and resources in the datacenter • Local and global load balancing to ensure availability of virtual desktop infrastructure and applications Any User Any Device Anywhere Internet applications ADC XenApp/XenDesktop (VDI Environment) VMSERIES ADC VMSERIES Hypervisor Citrix NetScaler SDX Citrix Receiver • Safe application enablement for virtual desktop users on an individual or user-group basis to appropriate applications on the backend Citrix NetScaler SDX with VM-Series Consolidated Security and Availability for Citrix XenApp XenDesktop • Distributed denial-of-service (DDos) and advanced protection against known and unknown threats Summary The Palo Alto Networks VM-Series on Citrix NetScaler SDX provides enterprises with a powerful, best-in-class solution for secure application delivery. The full partitioning of application sets simplifies and reduces costs for application provisioning, maintenance and de-provisioning. The combined solution enables the secure delivery of all types of applications to all users in all locations while ensuring the highest levels of performance, security, availability, visibility and flexibility. 4401 Great America Parkway Santa Clara, CA 95054 Main: +1.408.753.4000 Sales: +1.866.320.4788 Support: +1.866.898.9087 Copyright ©2014, Palo Alto Networks, Inc.
