SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Palo Alto Networks® (NYSE: PANW), the global cybersecurity leader, today announced that, for the seventh consecutive time, the company has been recognized in the Leaders quadrant of the  "Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls" by Gartner Inc.

According to the report, "The Leaders quadrant contains vendors that build products that fulfill enterprise requirements. These requirements include a wide range of models, support for virtualization and virtual LANs, and a management and reporting capability that is designed for complex and high-volume environments, such as multitier administration and rule/policy minimization. A solid NGFW capability is an important element, as enterprises continue to move away from having dedicated IPS appliances at their perimeter and remote locations. Vendors in this quadrant lead the market in offering new features that protect customers from emerging threats, provide expert capability rather than treat the firewall as a commodity and have a good track record of avoiding vulnerabilities in their security products. Common characteristics include handling the highest throughput with minimal performance loss, offering options for hardware acceleration and offering form factors that protect enterprises as they move to new infrastructure form factors."

The Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls1 evaluates vendors' ability to execute as well as their completeness of vision.
