Stunning performance improvements
Enhancements in PAN-OS 9.0 make the PA-7000 Series the fastest Next-Generation Firewall ever. The Network Processing Card (NPC), Switch Management Card (SMC), and Log Forwarding Card (LFC) intelligently distribute processing demands, each with massive amounts of computing power and dedicated memory. The combination of amazing performance and advanced prevention capabilities makes it possible for the new PA-7000 Series to stop the most sophisticated cyberattacks even at the highest throughput levels.
Close dangerous policy gaps using Policy Optimizer
Moving from port-based legacy firewall rules to App-ID™ technology-based ones greatly reduces the opportunity for attack. However, that transformation takes time, effort and resources. The new Policy Optimizer makes it easy. It uses simple workflows and intelligence gathered by PAN-OS to move from legacy rules to App-ID-based controls and strengthen your security.

Manage network security on a whole new scale
New innovations to Panorama make it a whole lot easier to scale your network security. With the latest release, you can now manage up to 5,000 firewalls with a single instance of Panorama. That simplifies life for security teams and meets tight budget constraints. In addition, you can manage more firewalls using Panorama Interconnect, which links multiple Panorama instances so that you can manage up to 30,000 firewalls in a single deployment. This cuts the operational workload for administrators while also improving your company’s overall security posture.
Secure cellular IoT
Wide adoption of cellular IoT (CIoT) technologies for low-power wide area network (LPWAN) connectivity is enabling industrial digitalization. In particular, Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) is one of the CIoT technologies well-suited for the LPWAN connectivity standard developed by 3GPP to enable a wide range of cellular devices and services. Complete visibility and control of the NB-IoT traffic on both signaling/control and data planes is essential to secure your CIoT services against DoS attacks from weaponized devices, malware, ransomware and other vulnerabilities.
