Whitepaper: Firewall Buyers Guide

by Palo Alto NetworksDec 16, 2013

At one time, the concept of allowing an employee to use an external or personal application for work related purposes was unheard of. Today, employees are always online and are continually using the latest applications, often times melding personal and work-related usage. Summarily blocking these applications is equivalent to blocking the business.

The 10 Things Your Next Firewall Must Do validates the fact that the best location to execute secure application enablement is at the firewall using the application identity and traditional positive control model (firewall) policies that allow administrators to define, based on the business, which applications are enabled and which are denied.

Whitepaper: Establishing a Logical Perimeter

by Palo Alto NetworksDec 20, 2013

The boundaries of the modern enterprise have undergone massive changes, and these shifts are causing IT, security and networking teams to fundamentally reevaluate the way they think about and manage the network. It is no secret that near-universal Internet connectivity has changed society and user behavior along with it. Users simply assume that they will be able to connect and work (or not) from anywhere, whether using their corporate laptop or increasingly popular platforms such as Android and iOS devices. From the end-user's perspective being inside or outside the walls of the enterprise is seen as largely incidental. However, while connectivity has become near universal, enterprise security has not, and when users leave the corporate network, they are also leaving behind the enterprise best-practices and best-of-breed security technologies that are the heart of corporate security.

Whitepaper: Cybersecurity Imperatives: Reinvent Your Network Security

by Palo Alto NetworksDec 20, 2013

Cybersecurity has become a leading topic both within and beyond the corporate boardroom. What enterprises need to stop the escalation of cyberattacks is a network security approach that is designed from the outset to enable the safe use of the applications and technologies required to support a thriving business.

Whitepaper: Getting Started With a Zero Trust Approach to Network Security

by Palo Alto NetworksMar 01, 2014

The continued, high frequency of successful cyberattacks against today's enterprises has made it abundantly clear that traditional, perimeter-centric security strategies are no longer effective. The failure of resulting architectures is a product not only of the outdated assumption that everything on the inside of an organization's network can be trusted, but also the inability of legacy countermeasures to provide adequate visibility, control, and protection of application traffic transiting associated network boundaries.

This paper discusses the need for and details of a Zero Trust approach to network security. It also itemizes the essential criteria and capabilities required of a Zero Trust solution, explains how the Palo Alto Networks next-generation security platform delivers on these requirements, and provides guidance on how to progressively migrate to a Zero Trust design.

Benefits available to organizations that employ Palo Alto Networks solutions to implement a Zero Trust network include:
� Dramatically improved effectiveness in mitigating data loss via visibility and safe enablement of applications, and detection and prevention of advanced threats;
� greater efficiency for achieving compliance with security and privacy mandates;
� increased ability to securely enable transformative IT initiatives-such as user mobility and infrastructure virtualization; and,
� substantially reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) for IT security.
