Next-Generation Firewalls

Palo Alto Networks™ is the network security company. Its next-generation firewalls enable unprecedented application visibility and granular policy control - by user, not just IP address – at up to 10Gbps with no performance degradation.

Network Security & Threats

Palo Alto Networks firewalls accurately identify and control applications - regardless of port, protocol, evasive tactic or SSL encryption - and enhance threat security, prevent data leakage and overcome the challenges of device sprawl. Next-generation firewalls help companies address:

  • Network Security: Control over applications, users and content, combined with network segmentation, can greatly reduce the risks to any organization;
  • Application Visibility: Reduce loss of productivity, compliance issues, threat propagation and data leakage risks;
  • Application Control: Regain control over the applications on your network - good, bad, and evasive - with user - based policies;
  • Threat Security: Stop bad applications. Scan allowed applications for all types of threats. Do it at multi-Gbps speeds;
  • Device Consolidation: Simplify security infrastructure and reduce TCO.

Firewall Security

More than ever before, firewalls must become application aware in order to mitigate application threats. Next-generation firewalls from Palo Alto Networks overcome the challenges of traditional network security solutions such as port-based firewalls and standalone IPS products.
