Learn what’s new and exciting in the Cloud Services plugin versions.
The following table describes the new features introduced
in the Cloud Services plugin version 1.1.0.
Dynamic Routing Support
For a multi-site environment, support for
the dynamic routing protocol—BGP— makes it easier for you to onboard your remote network locations and service connections without
manually configuring static routes. When you configure your on-premises BGP
routers to broadcast information on subnets in remote networks or
at headquarters, Prisma Access learns these routes and enables communication between
the headquarters and the remote network locations or between remote
Redundancy Across Service
Connection and Remote Networks
For a better user experience,
the Prisma Access now supports redundant routes directing traffic
from your mobile users and remote network locations to your headquarters
or data center over a service connection. This enhancement is available for
BGP and static route configurations. If, for example, you have set
up three service connections and a service connection tunnel is
down, mobile user and remote network traffic is automatically routed over
the other two operational service connections or remote network
Smaller Bandwidth Allocation
Support for 2 Mbps and 5 Mbps
of bandwidth is now available for your remote network locations with
lower bandwidth requirements. From the total bandwidth pool you
purchase, you can divide the available bandwidth across each remote
network location that you onboard in increments of 2 Mbps, 5Mbps,
10 Mbps, 25 Mbps, 50 Mbps, 100 Mbps, or 300 Mbps.
Egress IP Address List for Prisma Access Infrastructure
If you have configured IP address allow
lists to manage access to SaaS applications such as O365 or to applications
that you host on the public cloud, changes to the IP addresses in
your Prisma Access infrastructure can pose a challenge. As Prisma Access
dynamically deploys firewalls to meet the requirements of your network
and mobile users, you can now subscribe to a notification URL to
learn about IP address changes in your Prisma Access infrastructure.
You then can use a script or manually retrieve the list of IP addresses for all
firewalls in your Prisma Access infrastructure, or just GlobalProtect
gateways, GlobalProtect portals, or remote network firewalls and
adjust your policies with IP-based restrictions to safely enable
access for all SaaS or cloud applications.
