Join Palo Alto Networks at Black Hat USA 2021

Palo Alto Networks is a proud Titanium Sponsor of Black Hat USA 2021. The health and safety of Palo Alto Networks employees is our top priority as we monitor the Coronavirus situation. Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to forgo the on-site activities at Black Hat. We look forward to engaging with attendees via the virtual conference. We have many exciting opportunities for you to participate in virtually from the comfort of your home. You can interact with Palo Alto Networks by visiting our virtual booth or by attending our virtual sessions:

Virtual Booth

A Year of Container Attacks and a Very Vulnerable Docker Honeypot

Wednesday, August 4, 11:20 – 11:40 a.m. PDT

What happens when you leave a Docker daemon exposed for over a month? We’re taking a look back at a year of threat research on container security, including highlights of the creative ways attackers are targeting containers. Then, we’ll run the numbers and provide examples of the attacks experienced when a Docker daemon is left with a common misconfiguration. Learn the real-world consequences of leaving a container misconfigured.

    Design and Deploy Zero Trust Network Security
    with a Next-Generation Identity Architecture

    Thursday, August 5, 2021, 10:50 – 11:10 a.m. PDT

    Identity is a critical component of a Zero Trust approach to network security. With enterprises increasingly migrating from on-prem to cloud identity providers, and users connecting everywhere, it’s difficult to keep security and identity connected and in sync across the network. Networks are designed for a single source of identity, and this can lead to inconsistent security between data centers, campus networks, public clouds, and hybrid environments.

    In this session, Imran Bashir will describe a new cloud-based architecture for identity designed to authenticate and authorize users against various identity sources, whether they’re on-prem, in the cloud, or a hybrid scenario. He’ll describe its applicability to identity-based policies, simplified cloud authentication, and optimized performance for use case policies. Then he’ll close with a short demo of the technology.

    Cortex XDR vs. SolarWinds and HAFNIUM

    Recent high-impact attacks are raising concerns about whether advanced threat actors have the upper hand over enterprise security. SolarWinds showed how effective an adversary could be by subverting the trust we have in our technology vendors, and HAFNIUM is teaching us just how vulnerable we are against a weaponized exploit on an exposed service – even when a patch is available. This session will analyze what made these attacks so effective, the methods the attackers used and what it takes to prevail with Cortex® XDR™.

    Tenets of an Effective SASE Solution

    Interest in a converged, modern approach to network and security through the Secure Access Edge (SASE) framework is growing. With today’s hyper distributed workforce, organizations are looking to connect and protect users to support innovation and transform experiences at the edge. In this session, Mary Blackowiak, Senior Product Marketing Manager, and Ron Ronco from Palo Alto Networks, will discuss the tenets of an effective SASE solution, benefits of a managed solution, use cases, and how organizations should plan their SASE journey.
