The World

Your network has expanded beyond your organization’s boundaries. Cloud locations and remote users (often using personal devices) have “distributed” the surface you need to both enable and protect.

At the same time, the motivations of attackers and their sophistication have continued to evolve.

Your World

Managing to acceptable levels of risk, while enabling new styles of IT (e.g., SaaS, hybrid cloud, mobile users), is the goal.

Enabling safe, appropriate use of applications and data on top of an ever-distributing foundation, and in the face of evolving threats, is the opportunity.

Our Approach

Our network security management enables you to manage your distributed network of next-generation firewalls from one central platform. Our next-generation firewall is the cornerstone of our security platform, providing the visibility and enforcement needed to safely enable applications and prevent threats across your organization.

Integration with advanced threat intelligence (e.g., WildFire) allows the unknown to be quickly analyzed, providing a closed loop of detection and prevention to stop advanced attacks.

Our next-generation firewalls are all based on a consistent Single-Pass Architecture, enabling security capability that is unique in the industry. This architecture is implemented in a portfolio of both physical and virtual appliances, designed to cover a range of performance and use case requirements.

Features and management are consistent across the portfolio. Integration with GlobalProtect™ mobile security service extends policy-based security to mobile devices (whether on-premises or remote). Integration with our threat intelligence services keeps information up to date for the firewall (e.g., URL categories, threat signatures). WildFire™ cloud-based malware analysis environment integration supports a rapid “feedback loop” that enables the firewall to stop advanced threats throughout the attack lifecycle.



Superior by Architecture

Our next-generation firewall is the only one that attempts to fully classify traffic (including user association), and then make all of that classification knowledge available to all control and enforcement options. It’s an approach that allows for precise, flexible control of traffic based on: applications, users, and the information content of the traffic.

In addition to control and security capability, our next-generation firewalls are designed for operations. Our simple, straightforward user interface complements the straightforward architecture. Automation and integration into larger systems (e.g., automated provisioning, SDN) is supported by our XML API.

Security ultimately needs to enable your organization’s business or mission. Start with an assessment of your cybersecurity posture, including: application use, URL traffic, content types, and both known and unknown threats. Our Security Lifecycle Review can give you a relevant look into what’s happening in your organization.

Then, ask about an evaluation to see how our next-generation firewalls can help you enable applications and manage risk. We even have tools to help you migrate from traditional firewalls to our next-generation firewalls.
