Learn how to set up your cloud service infrastructure for remote sites and mobile users.
The following workflow provides you with the summary steps that you take to install and configure
Prisma Access
.
  1. Launch the
    Prisma Access
    through the hub.
    1. Launch an internet browser and
      Sign In
      to the hub.
    2. Launch the
      Prisma Access
      app.
  2. Specify trusted IP addresses for
    Prisma Access (Cloud Management)
    administrators.
    Only administrators that log in from these source IP addresses (and also that successfully authenticate) can access
    Prisma Access (Cloud Management)
    . The IP addresses must be public addresses. By default, there aren’t any trusted addresses enforced (the list is set to any). To get started, find the
    Settings
    menu on the left navigation panel and click
    IP Restrictions
    .
  3. Enable the service infrastructure and service connections that allows communication between
    Prisma Access
    elements.
  4. Secure mobile users with GlobalProtect or Explicit Proxy, as required for your deployment.
  5. Plan, create, and configure remote network connections.
  6. (
    Optional
    ) Change the authentication method from local authentication to your organization’s authentication method.
  7. (
    Optional
    ) Forward logs from Cortex Data Lake to an external Syslog receiver using Cortex Data Lake.
  8. (
    Optional
    ) Check the status of
    Prisma Access
    .
    You can retrieve the status of all cloud services, including
    Prisma Access
    and Cortex Data Lake, and a historical record of the service uptime by accessing the app instance from the hub.
    You can also sign up for email or text message notifications so that you are notified when infrastructure updates are planned; when updates occur; and when Palo Alto Networks® creates, updates, or resolves an incident. To sign up for email updates, go to the Resources section of the hub home page and then select
    Service Status
    . You can then
    Subscribe
    to specific updates and incidents for your cloud services.
