For those who missed it, Gartner, Inc. recently released its Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls and it gives me pleasure to announce that we are again positioned in the “Leaders” quadrant. If you’re interested in reading the full report and see all of Gartner’s findings, you can get it here.
While the full report has a number of interesting data points about the enterprise network firewall market that are worth noting, there are three that I find particularly interesting and want to highlight to you.
Our interpretation of Gartner’s report, and these data points, lead us to believe that enterprises continue the widespread migration to NGFWs and the report articulates the reasons why. While these were the highlights that stood out to me, there’s much more worth reading in the entire Magic Quadrant report and I encourage you to read the complete report to learn about all of Gartner’s findings.
I wanted to close by sharing feedback one of our customers gave us after reading Gartner’s report:
“Gartner’s evaluation of Palo Alto Networks technology is refreshing to me. Four years ago we needed to refresh our firewall/IDS/IPS/web protection strategy. It was clear to me that this technology vertical needed to be reinvented. I realized then that Palo Alto was a game changer. Our investment in Palo Alto technology over the years has been critical to the success of our organization.”
We thank our customers - our partners in this journey - that continue to advocate to their peers, stakeholders, and the broader analyst community that Palo Alto Networks is the definitive leader in this transformed network security market.
