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 the increasingly complex and rapidly growing number of applications running on your networks. At the core of this platform is our next-generation firewall which delivers visibility and control over application, users, and content within the firewall using a highly optimized hardware and software architecture. This platform uniquely offers you the ability to identify, control, and safely enable applications while at the same time inspecting all content for all threats all the time. These capabilities are combined with superior performance compared to traditional approaches, including those found in a UTM or software blade approach. Our approach allows you to simplify your network security infrastructure and to eliminate the need for a variety of stand-alone and bolt-on security devices. Our platform can address a broad range of your network security requirements, ranging from the data center to the enterprise perimeter to the far edges of the network, which includes branch offices and mobile devices.
The world around us is rapidly changing and 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 because of fundamental shifts in the application landscape, user behavior, cyber security dynamics, and infrastructure changes. SaaS, Web 2.0, social media, and cloud-based applications are everywhere. Mobile devices, cloud, and virtualization are fundamentally changing the 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 network security.
Our next-generation network security platform, with our 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, we deliver unmatched capabilities and continue to push the envelope. Innovation is at the core of everything we do. We were the first company to define and lead the industry’s transition from the stateful inspection firewall approach to the next-generation firewall paradigm. We were also the first company to define and lead the transition from malware detection to malware prevention. We continue to deliver new products and services that benefit you in unique ways.
Customer satisfaction is our focus and priority. We take your success very seriously in how we develop our products, provide customer support, and ensure a great experience. By joining the Palo Alto Networks family, you’ll be in the company of more than 10,000 customers around the world.
