Explicit Proxy Connectivity in GlobalProtect for Always-on Internet Security
May 22, 2023
Prisma Access adds explicit proxy connectivity to its version 6.2 GlobalProtect app. With this introduction, end users are protected with always-on internet security while getting on-demand access to private apps, either via a third-party VPN or via GlobalProtect with Prisma Access or an on-premises NGFW. This capability enables you to:
  • Easily replace 3rd party proxy solutions
  • Co-exist with any 3rd-party VPN agents
  • Support both browser-based and non-browser-based apps to secure internet traffic
  • Simplify proxy deployments and achieve User-ID based enforcement for all traffic
Outbound Route Prefixes Increased to 500
May 16, 2023
When you specify the prefixes for which Prisma Access adds static routes for all service connections and remote network connections (
Cloud Services
Service Setup
Outbound Routes for the Service
), you can now specify up to 500 outbound routes. Routes you specify here are routed to these prefixes over the internet.
This increase was added to Panorama Managed Prisma Access with the 4.0.0-h20 Cloud Services plugin. Cloud Managed Prisma Access deployments support a maximum number of 10 outbound routes.
Integrate Prisma Access with Cisco Meraki SD-WAN
May 05, 2023
Secure Cisco Meraki MX SD-WAN devices using Prisma Access (Cloud Management) with the latest simplified and automated tunnel creation, instead of onboarding them manually like in previous releases.
ZTNA Connector
April 18, 2023
The Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) Connector lets you connect to your organization's private apps simply and securely. ZTNA Connector provides mobile users and users at branch locations access to your private apps using an automated secure tunnel, which eliminates the requirement of setting up IPSec tunnels and routing definitions to access the private apps. ZTNA Connector does not require any routing from the customer infrastructure and can provide access to applications that use overlapped IP addresses in your networks.

Support for 400 Remote Network Sites per IPSec Termination Node
March 30, 2023

Support for 15,000 Branch Sites in a Single Tenant
March 30, 2023
Prisma SASE can support up to 15,000 Branch sites in one tenant. If you require more than 15,000 branch sites, you can take advantage of Prisma SASE's multi-tenant capability built for distributed global enterprises and MSPs with support for an effective unlimited number of remote users.
New Prisma Access locations With Local Zones
March 30, 2023
Prisma Access adds locations that are in local zones. These locations have their own compute locations. The following locations are supported:
  • Australia West (Perth)
  • US-Central (Chicago)
  • US-Southeast (Miami)
You onboard local zones in the same way as any other Prisma Access location, and the local zones are available in Mobile Users—GlobalProtect, Remote Network, and Service Connection deployments. The local zone locations are denoted with two asterisks for Panorama Managed deployments and are denoted as a
Local Zone
in Cloud Managed deployments.
Keep in mind the following guidelines when deploying local zones:
  • Local zone locations do not use Palo Alto Networks registered IP addresses.
  • 1 Gbps support for remote networks is not supported.
  • Remote network and service connection node redundancy across availability zones is not available if you deploy them in the same local zone, as both nodes are provisioned in a single zone.
  • These local zones do not use Palo Alto Networks registered IPs. If you have problems accessing URLs, report the website issue using or reach out to Palo Alto Networks support.
Support for RFC 6598 Addresses in Prisma Access Infrastructure IP Addresses
March 30, 2023
If your enterprise uses RFC 6598 IP addresses as a part of your enterprise routable address space, you can use that address space in the following Prisma Access infrastructure IP addresses:
To enable the use of addresses in infrastructure addresses, reach out to your Palo Alto Networks account representative or partner and submit a request.
Clientless VPN is not supported with RFC 6598 addresses.

New and Renamed Prisma Access Compute Locations and Remapped Locations
To better optimize performance of Prisma Access, we've made these updates to compute locations:
  • (Remapped) Poland
    —The Poland location is moving to the Europe Central (Warsaw) compute location.
  • (New) US Central West
    —The new US Central West location uses the US Central West compute location.
New deployments have the new remapping applied automatically. If you have an existing Prisma Access deployment that uses one of these locations and you want to take advantage of the remapped compute location, follow the procedure to add a new compute location to a deployed Prisma Access location.
