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 120Gbps 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.

PA-7000 Series Firewall: Next-generation firewall offers the perfect blend of power, intelligence and simplicity, derived from a proven platform architecture that combines an ultra-efficient, single-pass software engine with nearly 700 function-specific processors for networking, security, content inspection, and management.


PA-5200 Series Firewall: Next-generation firewall prevents threats, and safely enables applications, across a diverse set of high-performance use cases. The series includes the PA-5260, PA-5250, and PA-5220 which provide predictable performance with deep visibility into and control over all traffic, including encrypted traffic.


PA-5000 Series Firewall: Next-generation firewall designed to protect data centers, large enterprise Internet gateways, and service provider environments where traffic demands dictate predictable firewall and threat prevention throughput.


PA-3000 Series Firewall: Next-generation firewall enables you to secure your organization through advanced visibility and control of applications, users, and content at throughput speeds of up to 4 Gbps. Dedicated computing and programmable hardware resources assigned to networking, security, signature matching, and management functions ensure predictable performance.


PA-800 Series Firewall: Next-generation firewall provides advanced visibility and control of applications, users, and content at throughput speeds of up to 1.9 Gbps and with I/O options of up to four 10 Gigabit SFP+ ports.


PA-500 Firewall: Next-generation firewall best suited for Internet gateway deployments within medium to large branch offices and medium sized enterprises. Based on the same architectural foundation as all of our next-generation firewalls, the PA-500 is our smallest rack-mount form factor.


PA-220 Series Firewall: Next-generation firewall suitable for small organizations, branch offices and retail locations, the PA-220 desktop form factor brings you the same PAN-OS features that protect your largest data centers, including high availability with active/active and active/passive modes.


PA-200 Series Firewall: Next-generation firewall is ideal for small organizations or branch offices. The PA-200 form factor is sized for desktop deployments and is based on the same architectural foundation as all of our next-generation firewalls.
