SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Palo Alto Networks (NASDAQ: PANW), the global cybersecurity leader, today announced that the company has been positioned as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant® for Network Firewalls report by Gartner Inc. It was positioned furthest to the right for Completeness of Vision and highest for Ability to Execute among the 19 vendors evaluated. This marks the tenth consecutive time that Palo Alto Networks has been named a Leader in the report.

The Magic Quadrant for Network Firewalls evaluates vendors' Ability to Execute as well as the Completeness of their Vision. We believe Palo Alto Networks' continuing commitment to innovation and customer success has again helped the company earn the Leader position.

"We are delighted that Gartner has recognized us as a Leader in ten consecutive Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Firewalls reports," said Lee Klarich, chief product officer, Palo Alto Networks. "We believe this recognition validates the approach we took in 2007 when we reimagined network security, launching the industry's first Next-Generation Firewall, and the sustained innovation we have continued to drive ever since. For example, we recently launched new PA-400 Series and PA-5450 firewalls with several industry-first innovations to make it significantly easier for an organization to become a Zero Trust Enterprise. We look forward to continuing to provide comprehensive and transformative protections to secure our customers."
