About Palo Alto Networks
Palo Alto Networks, Inc. has pioneered the next generation of network security with an innovative platform that allows you to secure your network and safely enable an increasingly complex and rapidly growing number of applications. At the core of this platform is the next-generation firewall, which delivers visibility and control over applications, users, and content within the firewall using a highly optimized hardware and software architecture.
The platform uniquely offers you the ability to identify, control, and safely enable applications while inspecting all of your content for all threats all the time. These capabilities, combined with superior performance, surpass all traditional approaches including UTM and software blade. Palo Alto Network's approach allows you to simplify your network security infrastructure and eliminate a variety of stand-alone and bolt-on security devices. The platform can address a broad range of your network security requirements - from your datacenter to your enterprise perimeter, to the far edges of your network and more - including branch offices and mobile devices.
The world is rapidly changing. You need to respond faster than ever with innovative and proven approaches to better enable your organization, manage risks, and keep pace with technology developments. Networks have become more vulnerable due to fundamental shifts in the:
- Application landscape
- User behavior
- Cybersecurity dynamics
- Infrastructure changes
SaaS, Web 2.0, social media, and cloud-based applications are everywhere. Mobile devices, cloud, and virtualization are changing your network architecture. The way your users consume and your company manages IT has made you more and more susceptible to security breaches and compromised data.
Traditional network security products are incapable of enabling the next generation of applications, users, and infrastructures. It is time for a fundamentally new approach to your network security.
Palo Alto Networks' next-generation network security platform, with the next-generation firewall at its core, can safely enable applications for certain users while protecting against a wide array of security threats. Built from the ground up, it delivers unmatched capabilities and continue to push the envelope. Innovation is at the core of everything Palo Alto Networks does. Palo Alto Networks was the first company to define and lead the industry’s transition from the stateful inspection firewall approach to the next-generation firewall paradigm. Palo Alto Networks was also the first to define and lead the transition from malware detection to malware prevention. It continues to deliver new products and services that benefit you in unique ways.
