Palo Alto Offers Enterprise Facebook Firewalls
Recent changes to Facebook privacy settings are designed to share private and corporate information with advertisers and other third parties. Palo Alto Networks says its new App-ID allows IT security teams to protect their corporate Facebook users against the undesired data sharing.
"Palo Alto Networks, the network security company, today announced it has released new functionality that enables enterprises to control Facebook Social Plug-ins, empowering users to continue to embrace Facebook while mitigating any privacy concerns. Facebook users in enterprises are susceptible to having their confidential data shared with third parties because of recent changes at Facebook, which cause behavioral data from its users to be made available unless a user explicitly opts out."
