Palo Alto Networks is a Forrester Wave Leader 2020 for enterprise firewalls.We created the first Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) more than a decade ago and have continued to keep our customers ahead of fast-evolving threats in the years since then. More recently, we disrupted the market again with our announcement of the world’s first Machine Learning-Powered NGFW. With increasing attack surfaces that include hybrid clouds, remote workers, IoT devices and more, it’s all the more important that we provide customers with deep visibility and protection from the threats of today and tomorrow.

Today we’re particularly honored to be recognized by Forrester, which from our perspective is not only for our market and technology leadership, but also for having the strategic vision to protect our customers in the future.

Forrester has named Palo Alto Networks a Leader in its Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Firewalls, Q3 2020 report. We’re proud to receive the highest score in the Strategy category, and to receive the highest possible scores in 17 evaluated criteria, including usability, threat intelligence, automated malware analysis, ICS/OT/IoT, IDS/IPS and a dozen more.

Today, the efficacy of our Next-Generation Firewalls is evident in the trust placed in Palo Alto Networks by 70,000 customers in more than 150 countries.  

Recently we’ve delivered a new approach to cybersecurity with the ML-Powered Next-Generation Firewall and PAN-OS 10.0. The 70+ innovative new capabilities in PAN-OS 10.0 apply machine learning to proactively stop unknown threats, secure IoT devices and reduce errors with automatic policy recommendations. The ML-Powered Next Generation Firewall sets a new standard for network security so that customers don’t just keep up but stay ahead.  

We’re proud to be recognized by Forrester as a leader. Read a complimentary copy of The Forrester Wave: Enterprise Firewalls Q3’20.
