Palo Alto Networks Network Control Service takes organizations from a baseline firewall configuration focused on visibility to advanced feature implementation that provides control over the network. Port-based policies are converted to layer 7 application-based policies that shrink the attack surface of your network. SSL decryption is deployed to increase access to content traversing your environment, User-ID Group information is gathered and implemented to optimize control of users to critical applications, and a customized threat package is put in place to block malicious attacks.
