Palo Alto Networks,the global cybersecurity leader, announced today it has been positioned as a leader in the inaugural Forrester Wave™: Zero Trust Edge Solutions, Q3 2023 report. According to Forrester, Zero Trust Edge (ZTE), also known as secure access service edge (SASE), centralizes multiple networking and security capabilities — such as software-defined WAN (SD-WAN), cloud access security broker (CASB), Zero Trust network access (ZTNA), and secure web gateway (SWG) — into a unified solution.
According to the evaluation: "[Palo Alto Networks'] outstanding strategy aligns strongly to ZTE and features AI and AIOps to increase detection and decrease the chance of misconfiguration. While its peers have digital experience management on their forward roadmaps, Palo Alto Networks delivers it now." The Forrester evaluation asserts the company "has one of the few unified, integrated management portals for both networking and security in this evaluation" and "has strong ZTNA capabilities and recently refactored its SWG to include an AI inspection layer."
To learn more about Palo Alto Networks recognition in the 2023 Forrester Wave™for Zero Trust Edge Solutions, read ourblog.
Palo Alto Networks was among 10 vendors Forrester evaluated for the report, based on 32 criteria. Palo Alto NetworksPrisma SASEreceived the highest possible scores in 19 criteria, including Vision, Innovation, Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), Secure Web Gateway (SWG) and more.
Kumar Ramachandran, senior vice president of Products, SASE, Palo Alto Networks said:
"We are proud to be recognized. To us, this acknowledgement is for our superior cloud-delivered ZTNA 2.0 security, next-generation SD-WAN, and AI-powered IT operations from a single unified platform. We believe this recognition is a testament to our comprehensive approach to SASE and Zero Trust, ensuring our customers are prepared to meet the scale, complexity, and speed of a highly distributed and cloud-first world."
Organizations can lower their risk of a breach with an integrated SASE solution that protects against the latest network threats, while enabling full employee productivity and cloud adoption. Palo Alto Networks Prisma SASE consolidates multiple capabilities, including ZTNA 2.0, Cloud SWG, NG-CASB, FWaaS, SD-WAN and ADEM, into a single integrated service, reducing network and security complexity while increasing organizational agility. Moreover it empowers organizations to harness the power of AI and unlock the full potential of data with a unified platform approach.
In March, Palo Alto Networks announcedAI-powered SASE innovationsto enable organizations to automate their increasingly complex IT and network operations center (NOC) functions, including:
AI-powered Autonomous Digital Experience Management (ADEM)to help organizations proactively remediate issues that can cause service interruption, through AI-based problem detection and predictive analytics, by discovering network anomalies and isolating issues simply and quickly through an easy-to-use query interface and single dashboard.
SD-WAN innovations to extend Zero Trust to the branch of the future, like Prisma SD-WAN Command Center, enabling organizations to simplify management, get consistent visibility and leverage AI/ML for smarter decision-making.

RISC Zero, developer of leading general purpose zero-knowledge (ZK) virtual machine technology, has raised a $40 million Series A. The round was led by Blockchain Capital and joined by seed round lead Bain Capital Crypto, with participation from other notable investors including Galaxy Digital, IOSG, RockawayX, Maven 11, Fenbushi Capital, Delphi Digital, Aglaé Ventures, IOBC, Tribute Labs' Zero Dao, Figment Capital, and Alchemy Ventures.
RISC Zero's mission is to equip developers and infrastructure providers with novel cryptographic tools to power the next generation of trustless, scalable, and decentralized computation; both on and off-chain — allowing them to build solutions that defy common assumptions about the capabilities of blockchains and other federated and cooperative computing systems. Our innovative system enables users to confidently take control of their digital world by ensuring computational integrity and producing indisputable receipts of accurate program execution.
"Imagine a world where data privacy, security, and trust are no longer concerns, where software supply chains are transparent and verifiable, and where a new generation of applications can harness the power of zero-knowledge computing to solve some of the most pressing challenges of the digital age. This is the promise of zero-knowledge computing and the reason we are investing in RISC Zero" - Bart Stephens, Founder and Managing Partner at Blockchain Capital
RISC Zero's ZK Virtual Machine (zkVM) enables developers to build ZK-powered applications with the convenience of conventional programming languages such as Rust and C++. Utilizing advanced features such as continuations, RISC Zero's zkVM can run programs of arbitrary complexity and scope while utilizing off-the-shelf computing platforms — a first in the blockchain industry.
"We're honored to be supported by all of our incredible capital partners and the visionary leaders and teams that have signed on to help us build this revolution in computing capability. We're excited to play our part in building a more open and trusted foundation for the future of the internet." - Brian Retford, CEO & Co-founder
This funding round will enable RISC Zero to bring its Bonsai computing platform to market, supporting rapid application development and deployment in both cloud and decentralized environments. With Bonsai, developers can focus on writing their application instead of worrying about the complexities of proof orchestration and server infrastructure.
The RISC Zero platform will drive the coming decentralized computing revolution. We are bringing general purpose computing to the zero-knowledge ecosystem – enabling users to trust programs run anywhere, while allowing developers to use the tools they already know and love. Public key cryptography ushered in the modern internet era by fundamentally altering digital trust dynamics. Similarly, zero-knowledge computing will radically alter the way we interact digitally and enable entirely new classes of applications.
