Zero Trust has always been inherently aligned to our goal of helping customers reduce risk. When applying Zero Trust principles, you cannot trust or make assumptions about what happens before or after each hop in the infrastructure. Every device, application and microservice must be responsible for its own security. With each step, you need to validate, authenticate and apply threat prevention capabilities across all locations. Our commitment to Zero Trust means we see the Forrester ZTX Wave as an important milestone each time it is released.
Palo Alto Networks was created to counteract the industry habit of introducing a new or separate product for each individual problem. We do this by innovating and consolidating functions to create a platform that customers can use to solve more and more of their cybersecurity challenges. The value of this vision? Fewer devices, systems and alerts, as well as better coordination for visibility and response. This approach extends to our practice of enabling Zero Trust for our customers.
We work to deliver solutions that address Zero Trust end-to-end, spanning the infrastructure and providing the capabilities necessary to secure all users, applications, data and devices with comprehensive context at all times, across all locations. This includes building products that are easy to use, going beyond integration and developing enhanced capabilities that provide the strongest offering; automating as much as possible; and partnering with our customers in implementation to ensure success in their Zero Trust journeys.
As part of our own Zero Trust journey as a Zero Trust provider, I am happy to share that Palo Alto Networks has been named a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Zero Trust eXtended Ecosystem Platform Providers, Q3 2020. The Forrester ZTX Wave evaluated 15 vendors and scored them in the categories of current offering, strategy and market presence. As Forrester states in their recent report, “Palo Alto Networks has a complete toolkit for Zero Trust,” and we couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
