We’re particularly honored to be recognized not only for our market and technology leadership, but also for having the strategic vision to protect our customers in the future.

On Nov. 9, Gartner named Palo Alto Networks a Leader for the ninth consecutive time in its Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Firewalls for 2020. We’re proud to achieve the highest position for ability to execute and furthest position for completeness of vision in the Magic Quadrant.  

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, and extend security to all users and all applications throughout the enterprise.    

Recently we’ve delivered a new approach to cybersecurity with the industry’s first ML-Powered Next-Generation Firewall. 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 can extend protection throughout their enterprises and into the future.

In the last two months we’ve been named a Leader in three other major analyst reports that demonstrate the breadth of our vision. We’re proud of our recent recognition as a Leader in the The Forrester Wave: Enterprise Firewalls Q3’20, and The Forrester Wave™: Zero Trust eXtended Ecosystem Platform Providers, Q3 2020. We were also named a Leader in the 2020 Gartner WAN Edge Infrastructure Magic Quadrant.
