Palo Alto Networks offers one of the leading Next Generation Firewall solutions, reinforced by their leading ranking in the 2013 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls.
Built on an innovative security platform, the firewall natively classifies ALL traffic, on all ports, inclusive of applications, threats and content – then ties that traffic to the user, regardless of location or device type.
The core elements that run your business – the application, content, and user are then used as the basis of your security policies. This unique ability empowers you to safely enable applications, make informed decisions on network access, and strengthen your network security.
