Palo Alto Networks

Founded by security visionary Nir Zuk, Palo Alto Networks offers real innovation in the firewall by enabling unprecedented visibility and control of applications and content – by user, not just IP address – at up to 10Gbps with no performance degradation. Based on patent-pending App-ID™ technology, our next generation firewalls accurately identify applications – regardless of port, protocol, evasive tactic or SSL encryption – and scan content to stop threats and prevent data leakage. Enterprises can for the first time embrace Web 2.0 and maintain complete visibility and control, while significantly reducing total cost of ownership through device consolidation.

Whitepaper: Still Using Proxies for URL Filtering? There's a Better Way

by Palo Alto NetworksJul 01, 2014

Firewalls enforce network access via a positive control model, where only specific traffic defined in policies is granted access to the network while all other traffic is denied. Access Control Lists (ACLs) initially performed this functionality, often in routers, but their rudimentary approach gave way to dedicated packet filtering and stateful inspection firewall devices that offered deeper levels of access controls. Unfortunately, these traditional firewalls shared a common shortcoming - an

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 The failure of resulting architectures is a product not only of the outdated assumption that everything on the inside of an organization's network can be trusted, but also the inability of legacy countermeasures to provide adequate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
