  • Traffic from a remote network site to a data center or headquarters location using a remote network connection (for the remote network site) and a service connection (for the data center or headquarters location).

Prisma Access tracks your data transfer for mobile users, remote networks, and Clean Pipe per
unit
, and tracks the data starting on the date of your license activation. Units are based on the type of Prisma Access license you have; for mobile users, a unit is one mobile user and for remote networks, a unit is 1 Mbps.
Prisma Access allocates 250 GB of data for each unit per year, starting on the date of your license activation. If you have a license with multiple types of Prisma Access deployments, Prisma Access combines the units for all licenses you have to determine the maximum amount of data you can transfer during a 1 year period. The following table provides examples of the data transfer limit by license type and units purchased.
If you have a multitenant deployment, data transfer across all tenants must add up to the total data transfer limit based on the allocated units in your license.
