Find the details about a composite organization representative of interviewed and surveyed customers who realized a significant 163% return on investment (ROI) over 3 years. Those surveyed had no initial investment in the recently released Forrester Consulting study commissioned by Palo Alto Networks – The Total Economic Impact™ of Palo Alto Networks Software Firewalls. You’ll discover how our family of software Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) – virtual, container, managed cloud service – provided $3.70 million in benefits over a period of 3 years.
So where do these figures come from? The Forrester study leveraged in-depth interviews, extensive surveying and deep financial analysis to create a composite organization, which experienced benefits of $5.98 million over 3 years, versus costs of $2.28 million. All this added up to a net present value (NPV) of $3.70 million, which means the composite organization ended up getting more financial benefits than it initially invested.
The comprehensive study looks at a range of environments modern enterprises rely upon: hybrid clouds, multiclouds, private clouds, single public clouds. Software firewalls, covered by the study, comprise VM-Series virtual firewalls, CN-Series container firewalls, as well as managed cloud firewall services, such as Cloud NGFW for AWS and Cloud NGFW for Azure.
