Two Ways to Manage Prisma Access


There are two ways to manage Prisma Access: you can use Panorama or, for cloud management, you can use the new Strata Cloud Manager platform. Before you get started with Prisma Access, you must decide on the management interface you want to use , as you cannot switch management interfaces once you begin. 

Review the docs to validate feature support based on the management interface you're using; each topic covers feature parity and workflows across Panorama and cloud management with Strata Cloud Manager.
