Palo Alto Networks Traps solution replaces legacy antivirus (AV) and secures endpoints with a multi-method prevention approach that blocks malware and exploits, both known and unknown, before they compromise endpoints, such as laptops, desktops, and servers. Palo Alto Networks commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and objectively examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying its Traps solution. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of Traps on their organizations.
To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with this investment, Forrester interviewed four Palo Alto Networks Traps customers with a range of 11 to 36 months of experience using the Traps solution.
For this TEI study, Forrester created a composite Organization to illustrate the quantifiable benefits and costs of investing in Palo Alto Networks Traps. The composite Organization is a large global enterprise that has major operations in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific with minor multisite operations globally. It has been using Palo Alto Networks Traps for three years to block malware and exploits, and currently has 25,000 endpoints protected by Traps.
