Palo Alto Networks, Inc. has pioneered the next generation of network security with our 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 our next-generation firewall, which delivers visibility and control over applications, users, and content within the firewall using a highly optimized hardware and software architecture.
Palo Alto Networks offers a full line of next-generation security appliances that range from the PA-200, designed for enterprise remote offices, to the PA-7050, which is a modular chassis designed for high-speed datacenters. Our platform architecture is based on our single-pass software engine and uses function-specific processing for networking, security, threat prevention, and management to deliver predictable performance. The same firewall functionality that is delivered in the hardware appliances is also available in the VM-Series virtual firewall, allowing you to secure your virtualized and cloud-based computing environments using the same policies applied to your perimeter or remote office firewalls.
Deploy next-generation security in your datacenters without compromising performance.
Deploy the PA-5060, PA-5050, and PA-5020 to protect high-speed datacenters, server farms, and service provider environments with next-generation firewall security.
Utilize the PA-3050 and the PA-3020 to protect medium-to-large branch enterprise networks with next-generation firewall security.
Secure high-speed networks in medium-to-large branch enterprises with next-generation firewall capabilities using the PA-2050 or the PA-2020.
Protect medium-to-large branch offices and medium enterprise networks with next-generation firewall security from the PA-500.
Secure medium enterprises and small enterprise branch offices with next-generation firewall security using the PA-200.
Mobile Security Manager
GlobalProtect provides a unique, integrated mobile security solution to safely enable mobile devices for business use. It consists of three key components: GlobalProtect Gateway (available on the Palo Alto Networks next-generation network security platform), GlobalProtect Mobile Security Manager (available on the Palo Alto Networks GP-100), and GlobalProtect App (available for iOS and Android devices).
GlobalProtect Mobile Security Manager is available on the GP-100 platform, and provides device management, malware detection and shares device state information with GlobalProtect Gateway.
Modern cyberattacks and APTs rely on stealth, persistence, and the skilled avoidance of traditional security throughout the lifecycle of the attack. Palo Alto Networks offers an end-to-end approach to these threats that leverages the unique visibility of our next-generation firewall, combined with a cloud-based malware analysis environment in which new and unknown malware and exploits can run and conclusively be identified.
By default, you can leverage Palo Alto Networks WildFire infrastructure hosted in the public cloud, enabling any Palo Alto Networks firewall to add the ability to detect and block unknown malware and exploits. However, if you prefer not to use public cloud services, the WF-500 provides the ability to deploy WildFire as a private cloud on your own network.
Multiple firewalls can leverage a single WF-500 appliance for analyzing unknown malware and exploits. This allows you to deploy one cloud-based virtual environment for the analysis of threats that is shared across all firewalls, as opposed to deploying single-use hardware at every ingress/egress point and network point of presence.
Organizations that prefer not to use public cloud applications due to regulatory and privacy concerns can deploy WildFire as a private cloud using the WF-500.
