Palo Alto’s Next Generation Firewall gives you a complete solution that handles the world of applications comprehensively. Using their Single-Pass Architecture, the firewall is able to classify and control all traffic in a ‘single pass’ using a variety of stream-based technology components. What you get is a full, contextual classification of traffic, followed by a rich set of threat prevention and enforcement options. The firewall can develop contextual awareness for all traffic attempting to traverse it. Session traffic is now understood with respect to applications, users, sensitive data patterns and more.
Each NGFW is backed up by a range of purpose-built security subscriptions. Allowing you to safely enable applications, users and content by adding natively integrated protection from known and unknown threats (both on and off the network). These subscriptions share context and prevent threats at every stage of the attack. Simplifying management and enabling your business while allowing you to enable singular policies and automated protection that secures your network.
Today Palo Alto Networks combines network, cloud and endpoint security with advanced threat intelligence in a natively integrated security platform. This platform safely enables applications and delivers highly automated, preventative protection against threats at all stages in the attack lifecycle without compromising performance.
The end result is that customers not only benefit from a superior security solution, but are able to benefit from an improved total cost of ownership as well.
