NSS Labs performed an independent test of the Palo Alto Networks PA-5250 v8.0.3-h4. The product was subjected to thorough testing at the NSS facility in Austin, Texas, based on the Next Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS) Test Methodology v3.1 available at www.nsslabs.com. This test was conducted free of charge and NSS did not receive any compensation in return for Palo Alto Networks’ participation.
AV-Comparatives, the independent organization that tests and assesses antivirus (AV) software, announced the completion of its 2017 “Comparison of Next-Generation Security Products” and presented Traps advanced endpoint protection with its “Approved” award. The firm conducted a series of malware protection and exploit prevention tests on Traps during September and October 2017. Download the report to view the results of this test.
Establishing effective IT security defenses is a necessity for the entire healthcare industry, from the largest health systems and payers to single-physician practices, research institutions, and medical device developers.
WildFire® cloud-based threat analysis and AutoFocus™ contextual threat intelligence services are two of the powerful core components fueling Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform to deliver better protection. Together, these cloud-delivered security services provide the industry’s most advanced analysis and prevention engine for highly evasive zero-day exploits and malware.
This eBook explores the unique partnership between Palo Alto Networks and REAN Cloud, and how the two companies work together to help you adopt a DevSecOps mindset and eliminate the friction between your development and security teams
When built on a next-generation security platform, this approach can provide full context and intelligence, enabling the security team to address the unique requirements of the Mac while providing protection for all endpoints.
The firewall is the foundation of enterprise data security. All firewalls are not created equal, though and no two organizations have the same needs, risks and data flow. You need a firewall to protect against today’s advanced attacks while preserving the performance and uptime critical to foster innovation and growth. If you’re in the market for a new firewall, we’ll assume you understand the many benefits of next-generation firewall technology, and that a next-generation firewall is the way to go.
But how can you be sure you’re choosing the right next-generation firewall to meet your organization’s specific networking, performance and security needs for the present and the future?
In recent years, cybersecurity has emerged as one of the top concerns for the leader- ship of business and government organi- zations around the world. The troubling number of high-profile attacks targeting some of the largest companies in the world has led many to question whether adequate measures are in place on their own networks. Sophisticated attackers are employing new techniques to penetrate a network, and using methodologies to avoid detection by masking their activities in legitimate application traffic.
SSL-encrypted traffic is growing in government networks, resulting in multiple blind spots for security monitoring tools and creating an opportunity for attackers to hide malware. Many governments are considering or mandating the decryption of encrypted communications moving in and out of their networks. While traditional approaches favor dedicated SSL decryption appliances, these add latency, costs and increase time to resolution for security incidents.
Download our use case “Decrypt SSL and SSH Traffic to Disrupt Attacker Communications and Theft” to learn how Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform delivers an integrated approach to SSL decryption that streamlines security operations, improves network performance, and enables agencies to identify and prevent encrypted threats swiftly.
This paper from IDC, a premier global provider of market intelligence, examines modern endpoint protection, describing how the evolution of malware has created a need for a modernized approach to endpoint protection.
Since the release of the Cybersecurity Framework by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), organizations worldwide have implemented the framework to better understand and manage cyber risk. Download this white paper to explore the benefits of the CSF and how Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform capabilities map to and fulfill CSF subcategories.
Establishing, maintaining, and demonstrating compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a necessity for everyone in payment card processing—including merchants, processors, acquirers, issuers, and service providers, as well as companies that store, process or transmit cardholder data (CHD) and/or sensitive authentication data. With approximately three hundred individual requirements to address, organizations subject to the standard have their work cut out for them.
This white paper will explain how Palo Alto Networks® Next Generation Security Platform allows PCI system operators to significantly enhance security and exceed PCI DSS requirements through segmentation and mitigating risks of malware and unpatched systems.
Establishing, maintaining and demonstrating compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a necessity for all entities involved in payment card processing – including merchants, processors, acquirers, issuers, and service providers, as well as all other entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data (CHD) and/or sensitive authentication data (SAD). For all system components included in or connected to the Cardholder Data Environment (CDE), organizations must comply with more than three hundred requirements. It is in every organization’s best interest, therefore, to take advantage of network segmentation provisions stated in the PCI DSS to effectively isolate their CDE and thereby decrease the amount of infrastructure that is considered in scope.
Your Perimeter Is Everywhere. The world you need to secure is undergoing tremendous transformation. Global expansion, mobile workforces and cloud computing are shifting the location of your applications, data and users. These changes introduce new opportunities for business, but they also create a set of cybersecurity risks.
These tectonic shifts in location strain an organization’s ability to protect data and stop threats consistently.
The mandate for security has not changed, but the ability to deliver protection at each location is at a crossroads. Many organizations, faced with the rising costs of extending the perimeter using conventional methods, are left with few other choices. These consequences place organizations at risk. It is important to understand where the risks lie to evaluate what must be done to bring security back into balance.
