What is Included with Prisma Cloud Data Security?

  • AWS S3 support for Prisma Cloud tenants in the USA and EMEA regions.
  • Freemium
    experience that offers 300GB per tenant, before you are charged for using the Data Security module. When your data exceeds the freemium threshold you use credits from the Prisma Cloud Enterprise Edition license.
  • Ability to scan all or selected S3 buckets when you onboard your AWS account(s) on Prisma Cloud. You can choose to enable a forward or backward scan when you add the cloud account.
    The default scan quota for each tenant is 10TB; this quota allows you to control how much data is scanned so that you can align your organizational DLP budget with the amount of data that is scanned. This 10 TB limit is adjustable and you can open a support ticket with Prisma Cloud Customer Success to increase it and balance your costs, while also ensuring that you're using Prisma Cloud Data Security to scan the file types that you want to secure.
    Prisma Cloud Data Security needs to read objects stored on your AWS S3 buckets for scanning them. The encryption types supported are—Amazon S3 created and managed keys (SSE-S3), and AMS KMS keys that are AWS Managed or Customer Managed. If you use the AWS Key Management Service with Customer Managed Keys (CMK), when you assign the correct permissions to the Prisma Cloud IAM role, Prisma Cloud can scan files in S3 buckets that are encrypted using customer managed encryption keys.
  • Visibility, exposure, and classification of S3 buckets & objects on the new Data Dashboard, Data Inventory, and Object Explorer.
    • S3 objects in standard storage class only are ingested for scanning.
    • File sizes and scanning:
      • For data classification and malware scanning, the uncompressed file size must be less than 20MB. For example, if the file size is 25MB, but was compressed to under 20MB the file will not be successfully scanned.
      • Malware detection of objects (only Windows executables & Linux binaries).
      • For ML-based classification scanning, the file size must be less than 1MB.
      • For backward scan, each tenant has a daily limit of 300GB.
        For forward scan each tenant has 10GB per hour. When this threshold is met, the scanning is slower for the files in queue until the hour is reset.
    Prisma Cloud Data Security uses Palo Alto Networks’ Enterprise DLP and WildFire services to process and scan S3 objects for sensitive data and malware. When S3 objects are sent to Enterprise DLP for analysis, these objects are stored temporarily in Prisma Cloud’s S3 buckets for less than 24 hours, and then deleted. Enterprise DLP does not retain any data after it provides a data classification verdict on your files. Files processed by WildFire follow the standard retention policy for Wildfire.
  • Default Data policies to detect public exposure of sensitive information. The data policies generate alerts on Prisma Cloud and you can set up notification to external integration channels supported on Prisma Cloud. In addition, you can create custom data profiles and patterns and use them in policies to scan content for your security needs.
  • Integration with Config RQL to show all objects in an S3 bucket, including exposure, Data Profile & malware detection in the Resource Explorer.
